Palin: Hearing that McCain regrets picking me for VP is a 'perpetual gut-punch'
By Josh Delk - 05/10/18 06:22 PM EDT

Sarah Palin said Thursday that Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) admission that he regrets picking her as his running mate in his failed 2008 presidential bid is "like a perpetual gut-punch."

The former Republican vice presidential nominee said the senator's recent remarks were "not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he's apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign," she told the Daily Mail before speaking at a pro-Trump PAC fundraiser.

In his upcoming memoir, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations,” the 81-year-old senator laments not selecting former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) as his vice presidential candidate.

McCain still gives Palin high marks for her work on his campaign.

Truth is that he did make the decision.  I find him a very weak person, not because of his health but because he has no shame.  Trying to place the blame on Sarah Palin.  I know that I would never have voted for him if it was Lieberman.  Having Sarah Palin as his running mate was his strength because at the time Tea Party was strong and Sarah was at the head of it.  She was known and respected by everyone that associated with the Tea Party.  What an imbecile.

Palin should have said that she regrets ever accepting McCain's request. Which I'm sure is true. No doubt she does regret ever getting involved in this whole McCain mess.

   Pathetic, the bitterness and hatefulness this utter fool creates even in the confines of his own demise.
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Palin should be glad that McCain is trying to disassociate himself from her.  What a blessing actually!

Did you all ever see the movie about McCain and Palin starring Julianne Moore?  I was really floored by how condescending and sexist the McCain campaign was to Palin.  They really threw her to the wolves.

That's assuming there was any truth in the movie.  I find that Hollywood really, really doesn't get Republicans or conservatives.

I think it was based on one of those Halprin books full of dirt about that election and both Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt bragged that they did everything they could do to sabotage Palin during the damn election. There are also reams of stories about what a nasty self important person McLame is.

@Frank Cannon  Yes, that's it.  I was not a Sarah Palin fan, but I liked the rest of them even less in that movie.

I wish I could say I feel sorry for her, but I don't.  She'd had to have been dumb as a box of rocks to not see it.  I became very disappointed over the years at her actions re McCain.

Sorry Sarah....   The real gut punch was us being stuck with this POS as a candidate back in '08.

He ran the most miserable campaign imaginable.  From the outside it seemed he was throwing the damn thing.

He had the nerve to think it was his to lose...that it just didn't matter.

I wonder if it would have been worse if he actually ran all the way instead of quitting a few weeks early.

She was well compensated for her efforts for several years after the election.

When I was in my 30s, the goal I set for myself was to "grow old without becoming a bitter old man." That was prompted by a few years as a stockbroker after I left the Army. It wore on me, listening to retired guys who were set for life (401k AND a pension...the good old days), whining about crappy bosses, crappy jobs, missed opportunities, etc.

So far, so good.

Minus the amount she had to pay out for the myriad frivolous lawsuits filed by vindictive leftists in Alaska while she was Governor.  That was why she resigned the office, so I wonder how much cash she hemorrhaged before she resigned.

Then there was the matter of the gay author who stalked her family by moving in next door to her in Wasilla...

I never had to worry about becoming a crotchety old man, because I was born a crotchety young man.  :whistle:

She put new life into the campaign for awhile.  However, I went to see her at a campaign stop in Troy, OH and was unimpressed.  Her affectations and ‘you betchas’ made me feel like I was watching Fargo.  I kept waiting for William H. Macy to show up.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

McCain is basically slamming us.
You know, middle of America, flyover country rubes, who think our votes still matter.
We had the nerve to elect Tea Party types tp Congress and Senate.
These were people who wanted a balanced budget amendment, before the would raise the debt ceiling.
Remember that?

But McCain, with his willing accomplices in the Media, branded the Tea Party types as racist and rednecks, idiots.
McCain stands up and says the people who thing we should have a balanced budget should just crawl back into their Hobbit holes.
We are the hobbits he was referring to.
He admonished the new lawmakers, telling them, that they hadn't been around long enough to know what they were doing.
All the new lawmakers wanted to do was the will of the people who elected them, and McCain would have none of that.

While Palin wasn't a perfect instrument, and has since seen her star power fade, she was the forerunner to Trump.
Someone plan spoken, tough, no-nonsense and a champion of things average  Americans wanted, rather than elitist.
Trump tapped into our frustrations, and it worked.

McCain once said that Obama should have Obama care, because he won the election.
Odd, he has never given Trump that same consideration.
The truth is, John McCain has more disdain for the average conservative voter than he does his democratic colleagues.

And, the fact that she and her family have been under a microscope since then, and every stupid thing her kids have done is splashed all over the internet.

I honestly feel sorry for McCain.  Anyone who desires to spend the last weeks/days of his life burning bridges and settling scores clearly has no sense of God or an afterlife.

I know I wouldn't want to spend my last hours on earth in anger and bitterness.
If all I want is a warm feeling, I should just wet my pants.
