McCain Retracts Palin Statement

Saturday night found the Hockey Mom schmoozing in Philadelphia. When asked whether the U.S. should cross the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan, she replied "If that's what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should." The Wrinkly White Haired GuyTM apparently hadn't approved the message and was forced to say she didn't know what she was talking about.
"She would not... she understands and has stated repeatedly that we're not going to do anything except in America's national security interest,"

And of course, he blamed the media:
"In all due respect, people going around and... sticking a microphone while conversations are being held, and then all of a sudden that's—that's a person's position… This is a free country, but I don't think most Americans think that that's a definitve policy statement made by Governor Palin."

Except of course the question wasn't asked in private, but while dozens of people were standing around with cameras (and microphones). So remember, just because she says it, doesn't mean she believes it.
