Here’s what happened. Sarah Palin went to Hawaii to take a break from her madcap tour of white trash ‘burgs signing books held by people who can’t read. While in Hawaii she wore a visor with the word “McCain” on it, except the word “McCain” was blacked out, presumably with a Sharpie or some other kind of marker or fancy writin’ device that she recently learned to use. From CNN’s Political Ticker:
[TMZ] declared the hat a “frontal attack on Sen. John McCain,” but Palin told Politico she was merely trying to “be incognito” while vacationing in Hawaii.
“I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way,” Palin said in a statement to the Web site. “I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection. As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago. So much for trying to be incognito.”
Trying to be incognito? We call bullshit.
Ms. Palin, you’re telling us that you, one of the most recognizable women in the world, were wearing a McCain visor with his name blacked out in order to be incognito? You, who loves the spotlight so much that you’ll do anything to keep yourself in it? You’re either more stupid than we thought or you’re a liar. (Going with the latter, though we should probably assume it’s both.)
