McCain's timing is as impeccable as ever

First he said the fundamentals of the economy were sound as the economy fell into a pit and then he said he was kickass for helping pass the bailout bill on the day it failed to pass.

Now there's this.

About a minute-and-a-half from the end of this video, McCain gets pissy when a reporter asks him about Americans' concerns about Sarah Palin's readiness to be president. "Really?" he asks, "I haven't detected that and I haven't detected that in the polls, I haven't detected that amongst the base...I think that the American people have overwhelmingly show their approval."

The American people beg to differ.
...opinions about Sarah Palin have become increasingly negative, with a majority of the public (51%) now saying that the Alaska governor is not qualified to become president if necessary; just 37% say she is qualified to serve as president. That represents a reversal of opinion since early September, shortly after the GOP convention. At that time, 52% said Palin was qualified to step in as president, if necessary.
If he could get that Google thing down, he might not step in his own b.s. so much.
