Back in 2008 I voted for John McCain solely for two reasons:
- Obama was worse.
- Sarah Palin.
Palin has responded nobly to the news that the dying John McCain has stated in his current memoir that he regrets putting her on the ticket:
At first Palin said she was ‘frustrated’ with Trump for not having a lighter touch with McCain.
Then she stopped and said a better word would be ‘disappointment’ because Trump has been ‘disparaging Sen. McCain – his record, his history as a veteran – when we don’t know all the details of all those years that Sen. McCain made sacrifices for this country as a POW.’…
‘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.’
Go here to read the rest. Political fortune is fleeting, like most things in this vale of tears, but character remains for a person of true integrity. Sarah Palin has always been a class act.
