Hey, look at this. It's John McCain doing something that sorta looks kind of like answering a direct question from Matt Lauer about his mavericky choice of running mate last year…
Here's the best (and maverickiest) part…
Was it true, Lauer asked, that the vetting of Sarah Palin was so woefully inadequate that no one from the campaign traveled to Alaska to interview her husband or any of her political opponents?
"I wouldn't know," McCain said.
Mavericky, man. I can dig it. Regular square old non-mavericks pay attention to boring stuff like a running mate's mental stability, political acumen and if they have ties to fringe ring-wing secessionist groups. Non-non-mavericks like John McCain, Sarah Palin and me have better things to worry about, like new and exciting ways to squeeze the word "maverick" into sentences.
You anti-mavericks wouldn't understand.
