Palin: Not Interviewed Until The Day Before!!

http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archi...3/1331192.aspx

“Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was not subjected to a lengthy in-person background interview with the head Sen. John McCain’s vice presidential vetting team until last Wednesday in Arizona, the day before McCain asked her to be his running mate, and she did not disclose the fact that her 17-year-old daughter was pregnant until that meeting, two knowledgeable McCain officials acknowledged Tuesday.”

Damn ...She must be good. She got the "Little McCain" all excited. Call it a case of "Premature V.P. Immaculation"

This is misleading.

All prospects have to submit a resume along with any issues that might get flagged prior to even being considered.

The best way to vet a person is to investigate them prior.

Note that the head of the vetting team did not meet with her in person until Wednesday. It does not mean McCain and others did not meet with her prior.

Crappy journalism at its best.

Actually, it is not misleading. She was never even considered until a couple days before they made their pick, after he got the final "no" on Lieberman and Ridge.

Link?

I don't think a final "NO" was involved here. Neither Lieberman or Ridge would have helped McCain. He needed a gimmick and realized he could not offer the job to existing gridlock personnel.

Without a woman or black man on the Republican ticket, they will lose for sure.

Where are you getting this?

Actually the head of McCain's search committee was in Juneau in May.

The liberal free press of course.

If it is from NBC, it must be accurate.

They key to good journalism is the ability to lie while giving the illusion of telling the truth.

One guy from the VP search team meeting with her in May does not exactly amount to vetting. Or perhaps that is the problem. They actually considered that vetting.

By the way how many times did McCain meet with her before he "tapped" her?

What makes you think that was the only contact between the governor and the campaign?

So, I have to disprove your assertion? I have already disproved the idea that she was not even considered until the last minute.

For a change of pace why don't you try to substantiate the assertions you make?

So, in other words you can't prove it. Thought so.

How do you know what you know?

Define "claim"?

I just love when you go of the philosophical deep end whenever GOP is caught with their retarded pants down...
