Hey Walnuts, would you perhaps like to ride to the rescue of your party’s current standardbearer, who is at the moment in a spot of bother, by explaining that it was not his unseemly wealth or that he perhaps did not even pay any taxes sometimes (who can ever know? It would be irresponsible not to speculate!) that kept you from choosing His Lord High Hairgel Mittens Romney to be your running mate in your 2008 presidential bid? That instead, it was just because he sucked? You would? Swell! Let us get to it!
Asked why he chose not to go with Romney, McCain said: “Oh come on, because we thought that Sarah Palin was the better candidate. Why did we not take [Tim] Pawlenty, why did we not take any of the other 10 other people. Why didn’t I? Because we had a better candidate, the same way with all the others. … Come on, why? That’s a stupid question.”
Why? We are going to go with “starbursts,” by which we mean “John McCain wanted to pork Sarah Palin and also had lost any sense of integrity or responsibility for the well-being of the nation he professes to love and for which he suffered so faithfully for FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN.”
