In an interview with Politico today, John McCain let the cat out of the bag. He spoke about his vice president search in 2008 and told the online publication that from all the potential candidates, Romney included, he went “with the better candidate.”
“Why did we not take [Tim] Pawlenty, why did we not take any of the other 10 other people,” McCain said. “Why didn’t I? Because we had a better candidate, the same way with all the others. … Come on, why? That’s a stupid question.”
You heard that right, John McCain thought Sarah Palin was a better candidate for vice president. Sarah Palin, who didn’t know what news papers she read, who concluded that she had foreign experience because of Russia’s close vicinity to Alaska. John McCain thought that the woman who referred to herself as “a pitbull with lipstick” was better for the country than Mitt Romney.
