After the first Presidential Debate on Friday, when the spinmiesters hit the airwaves to champion their candidate's performance, Sarah Palin was glaringly absent. She was no where to be found on any network coverage while Biden made the rounds on nearly all of them. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the McCain campaign is keeping Palin in exile after her disastrous performance with Katie Couric last week. They must have decided she's not even competent enough to do 'spin' interviews.
During the actual debate, Palin attended a staged 'debate party' at a pub in Philadelphia. Too bad she didn't spend some time listening to what her running mate said. McCain condescendingly blasted Obama for making "naive" and "dangerous" remarks about pursuing terrorists in Pakistan if the Pakistani government wasn't willing or able to do so. On Saturday during a campaign stop, Palin told a customer at a Philadelphia restaurant that the United States should “absolutely” launch cross-border attacks from Afghanistan into Pakistan in the event that it becomes necessary to “stop the terrorists from coming any further in."
Maybe McCain and Palin need to spend a bit more quality time together so they can get their stories straight.
