Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has broken her silence about recent comments made by Sen. John McCain’s who allegedly stated that he regretted choosing her to be his vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election.
Palin stated that McCain has never told her personally that choosing her was a mistake, however she did say that hearing the reports about how angry and bitter he is toward her is “like a perpetual gut-punch.”
Instead, Palin insisted it is the people around McCain who have changed his mind about her.
“That’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he’s apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign – some who now staff MSNBC, the newsroom there, which tells you a lot,” she added. “I don’t know unless I heard it from Sen. McCain myself.”
“I don’t know all the details of his condition right now. It happens to me also where people speak for me and a bell is rung, and you can’t un-ring the bell,” Palin quipped.
“In spite of everything that has erupted in these past days with his spokesperson – or perhaps he himself – saying that he regrets that they chose me to run on their ticket,’ she said, ‘despite all that, he has been my friend,” Palin said.
Politics has a way of taking decent human beings and putting them into a meat grinder and spitting out monsters devoid of any decency, leaving them a shell of their former selves, so perhaps that’s what is going on with McCain.
Regardless, the reason he lost in 2008 had very little, if any, to do with Palin, and much more to do with a crappy campaign that was out of touch with the needs of most Americans and did not appeal to younger voters.
Let’s hope he comes to his senses and squashes this whole thing, reconciling with Palin, proving there’s more to life than politics.
