The McCain campaign placed Gov. Sarah Palin in Pennsylvania late last week. She was supposed to prop up the campaign, by, uh, by, uh - energizing Pennsylvania voters, who are supposed to still be upset that Obama asked difficult questions there in the weeks leading up to the Pennsylvania primary. That was supposed to be the ticket. It doesn't appear to work, as, after Palin left, Obama is now leading in Pennsylvania.
The night of the first presidential debate, Palin went to a Philly pub. Here's a YouTube of the demonstration outside, while she was inside:
While inside, she apparently made comments that undermined McCain statements in the debate about cross-border American military incursions inside of Pakistan. So, McCain and Palin had to go onto Katie Couric's show, to redeem campaign image:
What a farce....
Update - 6:40 a.m. Tuesday: from the comments, chef_the_city notes, "it was LATER, at a philly cheesesteak stand, and she totally agreed w/ the obama stance that mccain had just pooh-poohed during the debate, not to mention she was completely at her ease (at the time) and was quite friendly w/ the voter who she later tears down and misrepresents.
