How would Sarah Palin do if she decides to run for president? According to her former top-of-the-ticket running mate, quite well.
"She's very interesting. And I'm sure she'd do great," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told The Washington Post Wednesday in a brief interview.
After the 2008 presidential election, McCain has consistently praised Palin, despite her clash with his campaign team. Palin has also defended McCain. The former Alaska governor campaigned for the senator in his 2010 reelection bid.
"She's very interesting." WTF does that mean? Is that just another word for batshit crazy?
Personally I don't know how John McCain can show his face in public considering what he inflicted on this country.
And having him continue to publicly support Palin after the Iowa debacle lends credence to the idea that she has some serious dirt on him.
Either that or, much like Palin herself, he is simply incapable of admitting a mistake.
Which brings us to what happened just today.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain has kicked protesters out of a budget hearing, calling them "low-life scum."
The upheaval came Thursday on Capitol Hill after members of an anti-war group calling itself Code Pink approached a witness table where former secretaries of state Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright and George P. Shultz were testifying. The protesters carried signs calling the 91-year-old Kissinger a war criminal.
McCain blurted out, "Get out of here, you low-life scum."
Oh yeah, he's a peach.
Update: Well it looks like McCain may have his allegiances tested as his OTHER girlfriend is also teasing about a potential run:
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Thursday formed a political organization to explore a potential run for his party's presidential nomination, the latest high-profile politician to test the 2016 waters.
McCain has already gone on record in urging Graham to run, so if there were a contest between endorsing Palin or Lindsey-Lou I am pretty sure I know who really owns the key to his heart..
