Blithering Idiot, Part III

 

More Palin today:

Katie Couric, in a segment to air tonight, asks Palin about her joke that she’s been listening to Joe Biden’s speeches since second grade, and whether that isn’t an odd thing to say given her own running mate’s age:

“Oh no, it’s nothing negative at all. He’s got a lot of experience and just stating the fact there, that we’ve been hearing his speeches for all these years. So he’s got a tremendous amount of experience and, you know, I’m the new energy, the new face, the new ideas and he’s got the experience based on many many years in the Senate and voters are gonna have a choice there of what it is that they want in these next four years.”

So Palin is now saying that she wasn’t trying to say “don’t vote for the old guy.” Instead, she was trying to say “vote for the new guy, not the guy with the old face who’s been in the Senate a really long time.”
