At a boisterous Sarah Palin rally in Polk City, Florida on Saturday afternoon, one name was surprisingly absent from the campaign décor — John McCain’s.So, when will McSame be relegated to Viagra commercials like Bob Dole? McSame lost because he wasn't a hard-core wingnut like Palin, you see. That's now the official excuse.
Looking around the Fantasy of Flight aircraft hangar where the rally took place, one could see all the usual reminders that it was a pro-McCain event. There were two large “Country First” banners hung on the walls along with four enormous American flags meant to conjure the campaign’s underlying patriotic theme. Many of the men and women in the audience wore McCain hats and t-shirts.
But on closer inspection, the GOP nominee’s name was literally nowhere to be found on any of the official campaign signage distributed to supporters at the event.
The Sarah Palin 2012 campaign officially began today over John McSame's political corpse...three days before the 2008 election.
