That's mavirckiness we can believe in, my friends

I hate to say it, but Sarah Palin has a point.
He's got a lot of experience and just stating the fact there, that we've been hearing his speeches for all these years. So he's got a tremendous amount of experience and, you know, I'm the new energy, the new face, the new ideas and he's got the experience based on many many years in the Senate and voters are gonna have a choice there of what it is that they want in these next four years.

Got that? Don't vote for the old guy who's been in the Senate--like--forever. Vote for the new kid with energy and ideas. This must be why McCain has started chaperoning her to her interviews.

Speaking of mavirckiness we can believe in, those clever kids over at FireDogLake found a Mother Jones interview with McCain from 1998 when he was opposed to Clinton going after bin Laden.
Look, is this guy, Laden, really the bad guy that's depicted? Most of us have never heard of him before. And where there is a parallel with Vietnam is: What's plan B? What do we do next? We sent our troops into Vietnam to protect the bases. Lyndon Johnson said, Only to protect the bases. Next thing you know.... Well, we've declared to the terrorists that we're going to strike them wherever they live. That's fine. But what's next? That's where there might be some comparison.

We shouldn't let that Laden guy lure us into a global war on terror, because you never know what kind of unforeseen consequences that might have.
