McCain disses Palin on Leno

McCain knows he made a mistake. Not just in picking Palin, but in pretending he was someone he wasn’t (a far-right, mindless, Paline-esque conservative) in order to win an election. And now he’s too old to run again. That has to leave anyone a little bitter. And finally, after months of Palin mouthing off about not even wanting to pray with McCain aides, the big guy is biting back. From CNN:

Did John McCain snub Sarah Palin during an appearance Monday on NBC’s The Tonight Show?

That’s what some pro-Palin bloggers and other political observers claim after the former GOP presidential candidate left out his former running mate when naming five governors who he thought were in position to lead the Republican Party.

“We have, I’m happy to say, a lot of voices out there,” McCain told host Jay Leno before listing Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Utah Gov. Jim Huntsman, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist….

McCain then quickly joked, “I’ve left out somebody’s name and I’m going to hear about it.”

There are pro-Palin bloggers? That’s just sad.
