  • I refuse to believe that someone actually put this together and decided “yes, this is how we’re going to introduce the republican pick for VP to the world”.
    The devil is a liar!
    I couldn’t make my way past the 2 minute mark. “Mother…Moose-hunter…Mayor…Maverick” – are they for real? Yeesh.

    wow. their ads are better.

  • LH

    This was excruciating.

    And will someone please stop the Republicans from insisting that John McCain is the “original maverick”? He is not.

  • e.

    what in the world was that? and where was trig? whomp whomp.

  • melodik

    moose hunter? L. O. L. and i can’t stop thinking of the “living single” episode where maxine shaw ran for office and her slogan was “ride the maverick.” lol.

  • Steez

    “She may not be 6 feet tall, but she’s a self-made giant”.
    Really? We’re hating on height now?


    That was awesome.

    Except, James Garner is the only maverick I recognize.

    Republicans everywhere should be happy this video didn’t play before Palin spoke. And what’s up with the theme music from “Dallas” playing in the background?

  • Did anyone else think “original gangsta” when the narrator said “original maverick?” Because I did.

  • verdeluz

    ‘she loves integrity, frugality, and moose stew.’

    let’s just cut mccain out of the equation entirely. i’m sold.
