McCain/Palin: The Week That Was…Thus Far…But It’s Not Done Yet…Oh God…

Introducing, the new McCain/Palin official song. Put down all liquids…it really captures their essence. 

So, let’s recap:

— McCain campaign manager Rick Davis not only worked for Freddie Mac, but Davis persuaded the troubled lender to pay his lobbying firm, Davis Manafort, $15,000 a month for not working because he was close to John McCain

—  Alaskans are now beyond miffed at Palin’s troopergate machinations.   Especially since it’s McCain folks from outside Alaska who are roiling the political waters.

— After a disastrous interview with Charlie Gibson, and bizarre spoon-fed answers with Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin moved into the Katie Couric Zone of Death.  Wherein Palin promptly sucked.  That Katie, she’s a tiger:

Couric: …Can you give me any other examples in his 26 years of John McCain truly taking a stand on this?

Palin: I can give you examples of things that John McCain has done, that has shown his foresight, his pragmatism, and his leadership abilities. And that is what America needs today.

Couric: I’m just going to ask you one more time – not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation.

Palin: I’ll try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you.

Sarah Palin let Katie Couric give her homework. Uh. Mah. Gawd.

— Palin did so badly that McCain tried a reverse maneuver to overshadow her crapitude.  (With McCain’s $5,000 make-up pro in tow?) 

— To do this, McCain had to cancel Letterman.  By lying.  What’s worse than pissing off a comedian with a daily late night show?  Other comedians now must one up Letterman’s snarking about your craptastic idiocy.  Because comedians cannot help themselves.  Just tack a "big joke" sign on McCain’s forehead now.

— Palin.  Witchcraft exorcism.   Um…

Then there’s the too frazzled to debate maneuver with a side of chicken.  And the leaked McCain memo on selling it.

Did I miss anything?  Oh yeah, the economy is still tanking…as are McCain’s electoral numbers.
