I don't think the McCain campaign even understands insulting.
In response to this, the McCain campaign claimed that it was aghast at Obama's "sexist" attack on Governor Palin and ran an attack ad that simply boggles the mind:
And, in his usual style, Barack Obama pinned McCain's ears back against his head:
Me? I think Obama was obviously talking about McCain's policies. I think McCain is going for personal attacks because... you know... he's got no other basis on which to challenge Obama. And the funny thing? If Obama's remark was meant in any way as a slight, then it was quite a gentle one.
Because when I think about Sarah Palin and John McCain the expression that pops into my mind is "polishing a turd." Sure you add a useless layer of shiny lacquer but, at the end of the day, it's just the same old shit you had before.
