When asked to comment on Sarah Palin's resignation as Governor of Alaska, exactly one week after she stepped down, Sen. John McCain says he "respect(s) the decision she made," adding it was "clearly the best decision." Also, he again says it's too early to say whether he'd endorse Palin if she ran in 2012

2. This is another reminder, if one is needed, that the Repugs require only
a figurehead president. The task of actual governing is always left to the corporate overlords, or so it seems.

3. The old dumbass made a huge mistake when he picked her and he's going to have to defend her forever.
"Oh, she went nuts and shot up a Toyota dealership? Great decision! Best decision ever! See I told you I was right to pick her for VP!"

What an ass, when is he going to retire already.

4. Mr. and Mrs. John and Sarah
He talks about her now like she is his ex-wife where the marraige resulted in a child. He tries to keep the conversation "civil" for the child's sake but its apparent that the words are phony. I bet that he wishes he was back in the Hanoi Hilton when he gets these kinds of questions.

5. Clearly it's the best fucking decision for the People of
Alaska. The corporatemedia conveeeeniently forgets to cover her ethic conviction and the money problems she's caused the state of Alaska.

john mccain is just an old mediawhore.

6. I see this as fully consistent
I'm pretty sure that about a week after selecting her, McCain would have defended her quitting as Republican VP candidate as well.

7. I defend her quitting too
The woman shouldn't be in charge of an ice cream stand, much less an actual state.

Maybe now she'll go away.

8. I used to have political respect for McCain
I remember a time when I respect McCain politically. No more. Not after the Palin stunt he pulled. It's funny. He might have stood a chance in the election. His mistake as it is now to back her up.
