But does this really surprise anyone? I'm sure it'll be just a matter of time before an audio recording or video of her making some obscene statement like this surfaces and then the real fun will start.

We were also shocked to learn that aside from the television sitcom industry Fey found the time to be Governor of Alaska! Who knew?!!

We know Johnny Boy can't make his own money, so he marries wealthy, we know he can't remember how many luxury homes he owns so he relies on his staff for that answer. Now it seems in times of foreign policy skill he'll turn to his wife to do that too. What exactly is John McCain good for? No one seems to know yet.
The extra-sad part about the whole thing is the Republicans tried to time it all so as to take the spotlight away from the Democratic Convention but nobody cares and no one is reporting on it.

John McCain made it clear who his daddy was Monday morning.
Daddy Yankee, the hip-hop star from Puerto Rico, endorsed the Republican candidate Monday morning. Wearing black aviator shades in the library of Central High School here, Daddy Yankee said, “I believe in his ideals and his proposals to lead this nation…He’s been a fighter for the Hispanic community.”
The students gathered for the event clearly were not told ahead of time that Daddy Yankee was part of the deal. As the Latin-Grammy-winning recording artist walked into the room, the girls shrieked and screamed, grabbed each other by the hands and gasped at the sight of him. One girl fanned the tears from her eyes.
“I just wanna say thank you, Daddy Yankee,” McCain said.
Daddy Yankee is known for the song "Gasolina” which falls under the genre"reggaeton", a blend of hip-hop, dance music and reggae.
Many in the press corps joked about the intersection of the song (with its lyrics, when translated into English, are: “She likes gasoline,” he says. “Give me more gasoline!” a woman responds) and McCain’s energy policy. In fact, Washington Wire is told the phrase has nothing to do with the traditional meaning of gasoline.

Retired Gen. Colin Powell is among the potential running mates who have been considered by John McCain, campaign advisers told Politico.
Powell was among the possible vice presidential choices theArizona Republican senator was thinking of when he said he would not rule out a supporter of abortion rights, a key adviser said.
Campaign officials say McCain has told them not to discuss the process.
Catch that? No, not that lame attempt to remain relevant by throwing Powell's name around but the telling message about McCain's control over his own campaign.
The first sentence ends with "...campaign advisors told Politico." and then a paragraph later "Campaign officials say McCain has told them not to discuss the process." So McCain says to his staff don't discuss this with anyone and they turn around and blab to Politico. Brilliant.
p.s. I do realize that controled leaks or deliberat BS like this can be strategic but why throw McCain under the bus with that last part highlighting his staff not following his orders? His campaign is in shambles.
WARREN: At what point is a baby entitled to human rights?Of course the evangelical pro-life crowd cheered his response but there were no follow up questions. No clearification of how McCain would shape his policy around his declaration of "At the moment of conception" Does this mean that at the moment of conception a couple can claim that life as a dependant on their taxes? Or a woman can demand from her partner child support? Should it be illegal for a woman while pregnant to smoke or drink because it infrginges on the rights of the fetus? Does this mean that every miscarriage a woman has should be investigate as a criminal act as a potential manslaughter?
MCCAIN: At the moment of conception.
McCain's statement makes for a nice empty pander to the pro-life crowd. This is easily proven by McCain's voting record. If John McCain believes that a baby is entitled to human rights from the moment of conception, why does he support and vote for the funding of embryonic stem cell research?
Measure Title: A bill to amend the Public Health Service Act to provide for human embryonic stem cell research.
McCain (R-AZ), Yea
