John McCain: Sarah Palin's the best, forget the critics

NY Daily News
John McCain had a message Sunday for critics of his veep pick Sarah Palin: buzz off.

Palin has been blasted for appearing to be in over her head following a choppy, and at moments unintelligible, recent interview with CBS' Katie Couric. Some conservative Republicans have demanded she be yanked from the ticket.

McCain is having none of it.

"They can complain. I'll rely on the American people. They have responded in a way that is positive. She's brought a kind of excitement that makes you think that campaigns can be an exciting trip," McCain told ABC's "This Week."
"I'm so excited by the reaction that she has gotten across the country. She knows how to communicate directly with people. ... They respond," McCain added.

But polls show Palin's popularity waning as she has struggled to answer questions about foreign policy in the few interviews she has granted to journalists.

With even Republicans wincing over Palin's difficulty explaining the importance of Alaska's proximity to Russia in the Couric interview, McCain's camp was quick to note the many mistakes of the Democratic ticket's No. 2, Joe Biden.

Wild Thing's comment.............

I saw the interviewi with McCain Sunday morning on This Week, and McCain laughed when it was suggested Palin step down. He genuinely thinks the world of her.

Scrapple man Biden will gaffe again big time on Thursday. He thinks we had TV'S in 1929? He's an egotistical meglomaniac and he won't let US down, eh? Just let Sarah be Sarah and I hope she puts on her LIPSTICK before she answers her first question...YEAH!

McCain got this right. Sarah Palin is adored by the American public. We know what her experience is. We know what her potential is. Katie Couric has a lot of experience as a news anchor and is losing her job because the American public does not care for her. Ha, ha. So much for experience.

Tom, heh heh that is so true. I don't even know if Katie Couric was liked that much even in the beginning, certainly not like the way America has cared about Sarah from the start of hearing about her.
