Dick Cheney recently said that he thought John McCain had made a big mistake by putting Sarah Palin on the ticket as his vice presidential nominee. Palin responded on Fox News with the usual word salad we’ve grown accustomed to from her:
“Seeing as how Dick – excuse me, Vice President Cheney – never misfires, then evidently he’s quite convinced that what he had evidently read about me by the lamestream media, having been written, what I believe is a false narrative over the last four years, evidently Dick Cheney believed that stuff and that’s a shame,” Palin said in an appearance on Fox News.
Yes, it’s all someone else’s fault. As always. But there’s more:
Palin said Tuesday the real mistake would have been turning down McCain’s invitation to join the GOP ticket.
“Here’s where the mistake would have been, I believe. If I had not answered the call,” Palin said. “I was honored to run for the vice president of the United States alongside Sen. John McCain. I was honored to accept the nomination from the GOP.”
Okay Sarah, try to follow the thread. The issue isn’t whether you should have accepted the nomination, it’s whether McCain should have nominated you. Those aren’t the same thing. Carry on.
