Stammering, Dumbfounded McCain Spokesman Can’t Figure Out How to Answer Palin Questions

Tucker Bounds, McCain spokesman, to John McCain*:

‘I have good news and I have bad news. 

The good news is that we’re going to stop making jackasses out of ourselves by saying that Sarah Palin has foreign policy experience because Alaska is right next to Russia. 

The bad news is that we’re not yet sure exactly what we’ll say instead.’

*This is obviously not a real conversation.  The video, however, is beautifully real.

UPDATE:

It just keeps getting worse for Tucker.

“[I]n an interview with The Associated Press on Sunday, [Maj. Gen. Craig Campbell, adjutant general of the Alaska National Guard] said he and Palin play no role in national defense activities, even when they involve the Alaska National Guard. The entire operation is under federal control, and the governor is not briefed on situations.”

UPDATE TWO:

John McCain has pulled out of an interview with Larry King tonight.  TMP links the cancellation to Tucker Bounds’ disastrous appearance with Campbell Brown last night.  Seriously, Senator, it wasn’t Tucker’s fault Sarah Palin isn’t qualified to be vice president.  It’s yours.
