00:00:02 00:00:05 And then you know, John McCain was like he's gonna have to top that.
00:00:05 00:00:07 So today he announced. You think only in America.
00:00:07 00:00:11 Hey let me tell you something. My VP pick, is the Governor of Alaska,
00:00:16 00:00:21 a unknown hockey mum, named Sarah Palin,
00:00:22 00:00:25 that nobody every heard of. The only job she ever had before this,
00:00:25 00:00:31 in politics, was the Mayor of a small town, known as Wassila, Alaska.
00:00:31 00:00:33 And now she has the opportunity to be on a ticket,
00:00:34 00:00:39 opposite Barack Obama, the first black man she's ever seen.
00:00:41 00:00:46 Only in America, Ladies and Gentlemen. Only in America.
00:00:49 00:00:54 I'm not kidding. She was the Mayor of Wassila, population 7,000,
00:00:55 00:00:59 before she became the Governor of Alaska, population San Bernadino.
00:01:02 00:01:05 This isn't a Presidential ticket it's a sitcom.
00:01:06 00:01:09 The Maverick and the Milf.
00:01:13 00:01:19 Oh boy. Wilfred Brimley and Megan Malawi. The Maverick and the Milf.
00:01:21 00:01:27 Are you kidding me the Mayor of Wassila, Alaska. Yeah that's who you want,
00:01:27 00:01:32 in a time of crisis in the White House. When she got a phone at three in the morning,
00:01:33 00:01:35 it was because a moose had gotten into the garbage can.
00:01:38 00:01:44 I think this is pertinent because McCain has been running this campaign,
00:01:45 00:01:49 based on, we're at war. It's a dangerous world out there,
00:01:49 00:01:52 the Democrats don't get that and it's a dangerous war.
00:01:52 00:01:57 I, John McCain am the only one standing between the blood thirsty Al Quaeda's,
00:01:57 00:02:00 and you.
00:02:01 00:02:04 But if I die, the stewardess can handle it.
00:02:07 00:02:13 Wow. I am not kidding.
00:02:14 00:02:18 Governor Sarah Palin, whatever, I'll learn it.
00:02:19 00:02:23 When they were vetting her for this job, like three seconds ago,
00:02:24 00:02:28 she said quote, I'm not making this up, "what is it exactly that the VP does every day?"
00:02:31 00:02:35 Let me field that one for you Sarah. They start wars, they enrich their friends,
00:02:36 00:02:39 they subvert the constitution, and they shoot people in the face.
00:02:39 00:02:43 That's what the Vice President does.
00:02:43 00:02:51 I mean, an Alaskan hockey mum, is a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
00:02:51 00:02:56 When McCain says country first. This country, is that what he's talking about?
00:02:57 00:03:00 And the McCain people, they believe that Americans,
00:03:00 00:03:05 will disregard her inexperience, because they will fall in love with her story.
00:03:06 00:03:08 She was a runner up, I'm not making this up,
00:03:08 00:03:14 in the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant. Which may sound trite,
00:03:14 00:03:18 but you try walking in high heel snow shoes.
00:03:21 00:03:24 And the trump card, why Americans will fall in love with her.
00:03:24 00:03:26 She's got 5 kids. How could you not vote for someone,
00:03:26 00:03:31 who has 5 children, including an infant. Some touching details about the infant.
00:03:32 00:03:35 It has Down's syndrome. She had it when she was 43 years old.
00:03:36 00:03:38 And it looks a lot like John Edwards.
00:03:44 00:03:49 I mean, 5 kids. Does anyone in that party understand,
00:03:49 00:03:57 the concept of pulling out? I got it out of my system thank you very much.
