The Arizona senator says he’ll “absolutely” have her campaign with him when he sees reelection.


“If she did not give a good speech, she’s not the first politician that didn’t give a good speech from time to time, including me,” he told host Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”

After CNN played a few choice moments from Palin’s baffling address at the Iowa Freedom Summit, McCain grasped for words for a moment and then said Palin is “very popular with a lot of people.”

“I think that she ought to do whatever she feels that she would like to do,” he said when Bash asked if he thought Palin should run. “And I’m very supportive of anything that she does.”

    Palin breathes life into the delusions the GOP holds, so I guess she is an asset to an extant. At least if you want to live in a land of delusions.

    A huge difference between giving a bad speech and exhibiting clearly disconnected behavior.

    The guy is such a deluded narcissist he will never admit his colossal mistake which is Palin. Until he and the republican party tell her to sit down and STFU, the thought of that woman being one step away from the most powerful position in the world makes the entire republican party a laughingstock.

    Yes, Palin is very popular with a lot of people.

    No doubt, this demographic is solidly in the Palin camp.

    That leaves 20%, which includes at least some people who correctly believe that Obama was born in Hawaii, but who don’t consider Hawaii to be part of the United States. You read that right- 6% of poll respondents think that Hawaii is not part of the country and 4% are unsure.

    John is a little slow, he hasn’t got the memo that Palin is out and Walker is in. He was a little busy this week protecting Kissinger from a Code Pink terrorist attack. (I know, my grandkid’s girl scout troop is tougher)

    He calls that lying, foul mouthed harridan friend and a good person yet calls real Americans scum.

    That’s an easy decision, Arizona has some of the dumbest voters in the country. I say that even though a lot of my family lives there. He is another one of those career politicians who guaranteed reelection as long as he runs, regardless of how ineffective he is. Think Strom Thurmond, Robert Byrd, etc. If they appeared on the ballot today, they could get elected, even though they’re dead.

    I hope she runs for something.

    And as long a Palin keeps running on the republican ticked, she’s a great asset – to democrats.

    I like the Ed Harris version of McCain better.

  11. William February 2nd, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    I think she might fear complete obscurity. The GOP has finally developed a “Super” prototype, right wing nut. Dumber than Palin, and crazier than Bachmann.

    It’s interesting how “Palin an asset” and “Pain in the ass” are so similar. Maybe he was misquoted.

      McCain: Palin An Ass To Repubs, but hey hollowheads are all the Greedy Oligarch Party has remaining.

  13. labman57 February 2nd, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    She’s definitely an asset — every court needs its jester.

    Ok, can McCain be officially diagnosed with dementia NOW?
