McCain and running mate Sarah Palin softened opposition to government bailouts, accepting the U.S. takeover of the nation's largest insurer as unfortunate but necessary to protect ordinary Americans.
"The shot that has been called by the Feds — it's understandable but very, very disappointing that taxpayers are called upon for another one," Palin told reporters during a visit to delicatessen in Cleveland.
Uh, did it ever occur to McPalin that the "understandable but very, very disappointing" decision the government made is a direct result of the deregulation policies supported by McCain, and his Republican cronies and predecessors? The hypocrisy is appalling. I just wish I could find it surprising.
