"The scariest thing John McCain has ever said"

John McCain told NPR this morning that, regarding Governor Palin, he has “turned to her advice many times in the past … particularly on energy issues.” Many?

This would be especially scary when you consider that few people in the country are more misinformed on energy than Sarah Palin, the fungible candidate, a woman

Here are John McCain’s full comments:

NPR: Given what you’ve said Senator, is there an occasion where you could imagine turning to Governor Palin for advice in a foreign policy crisis.

MCCAIN: I’ve turned to her advice many times in the past….

NPR: But would you turn to Governor Palin?

MCCAIN: … I’ve already turned to Governor Palin particularly on energy issues and I’ve appreciated her background and knowledge on that and many other issues.

I think we can all agree that it would be much better if McCain were simply lying here, than actually telling the truth.

Hat tip to TP.

    Now remember, not only can you see Russia form Alaska, the Imperial Japanese Army once invaded Alaska.

    It went like this:

    McCain: “So, Sarah, when you’re up in one of those planes shooting at wolves, can you see the oil rigs from up there?”

    Palin: “Er, sure, yeah, sometimes, if we fly close enough.”

    McCain: “How about Russians? You ever see any Russians while you were up there?”

    Palin: “Nope.”

    So there you have it. He consulted her on energy and foreign policy.

    Under the Constitution the Vice President has a primary job which is to replace the President if necessary. In one bold stroke John McCain showed by picking Palin that he puts no value on his own experience.
