Palin gets a little help from a friend, Cindy McCain
WASHINGTON – The polls and pundits may be giving Sarah Palin a bad rap, but the Republican vice presidential candidate from Alaska has one staunch defender.
“I think she’s been treated very poorly in the press,” said Cindy McCain in an interview with CNN’s Larry King.
The wife of Republican presidential hopeful John McCain dismissed any idea that Palin has been a drag on the Republican ticket.
“She has done nothing but help this ticket. The size of the crowds she gets, the inspiration, the ability to get her message out, to get our message out. She is truly a remarkable woman,” McCain said.
As for the flap over the $150,000 the Republican Party spent on new clothes for Palin, how silly can the press be?
“With all that’s going on now, with our economy being where it is and we’re in two wars and everything else that’s going on worldwide I thought it was really a very silly thing to be upset about,” Cindy McCain said.
