Kaine Attacks Palin Choice
Governor Tim Kaine, who has been relatively quiet in the presidential race, set off a verbal bomb today, that has already moved in some national outlets. He said that John McCain “phoned in” his VP choice of Sarah Palin. He made the remarks on his weekly WTOP radio show.
Here is what he said via the AP:
(Kaine) said McCain met Palin once in a large crowd, interviewed her by phone, then offered her the vice presidential slot on the Republican ticket.
He said McCain knew so little about her that he had to crib her biography off her resume when he introduced her.
In Kaine’s words, “Most people would take hiring someone for a summer job more seriously.”
Tough words for a guy, who was passed over for the same job on the democratic side and certainly seems to be making the argument that Barack Obama knew him far better than McCain knew Palin.. and he still didn’t get picked.
