Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin says John McCain had been unfairly criticised for his “verbiage” on the state of the US economy.
Asked by Fox television about criticism over McCain’s comment that the fundamentals of the US economy were “strong” despite a deepening financial crisis, Ms Palin said; “It was an unfair attack on the verbiage that Senator McCain chose to use…”
In an interview to be aired later today, she said the White House hopeful “means our workforce. He means the ingenuity of the American people.”
While praising the skills of US workers, the Alaska Governor said “the economy is a mess.”
The Macquarie Dictionary defines “verbiage” as “abundance of useless words, as in writing or speech; wordiness.”
But the US-based Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as “a profusion of words usually of little or obscure content” or “manner of expressing oneself in words: diction”.
If McCain is elected, when you consider his age and health, there’s about a 50% chance that his sub-Arctic anti-choice dolt is going to be President before 2012.
Obama is furiously trying to appear to be less than what he is, lest he be accused of elitism; mind you, how a biracial guy raised by a single mum gets to be an elitist is well beyond my ken. On the other hand, McCain and Palin constantly overreach, trying to make themselves out to be more than they are.
The lipstick gags have been worn out. Here’s a new one:
What’s the difference between Palin and trailer trash?
