"And I devoutly hope that [she] would never be tested," he added for good measure -- referring both to Palin's policy dexterity and the idea of McCain not making it through his time in office.After his mind revolted, he was able to tamp down the mental secession and bring things back under the cruel despotic rule of the McCrown. Adding that lots of VP's weren't ready and that given time she would be........adequate, his thought peasants storming the McBastille once again. He finally closed the interview with his sincere, devout hope that she would never ever ever be tested, his brain proles solidly in the throes of beheading the McBourgeoisie. I'm guessing he won't be doing any interviews on behalf of McCain this weekend.
The remarks took place during an interview on National Public Radio that was, ironically, billed as "making the case" for a McCain presidency. Asked by the host whether Palin could step in during a time of crisis, Eagleburger reverted to sarcasm before leveling the harsh blow.
"It is a very good question," he said, pausing a few seconds, then adding with a chuckle: "I'm being facetious here. Look, of course not."
We're seeing the early stages of, along with the reports of her as a "diva", "bog monster", and"unscripted ignoramus", the long knives coming out for Bible Spice. It seems the McCain staffers don't much care for her of what she "added" to the ticket (can the subtraction of Independent voters be an addition?) and are regretting McCain's drunken dart throw landing on her after Lindsay Graham intimated McCain didn't have the stones to pick some random Republican to be his VP. Boy, those post-campaign books are going to be interesting.
