Minor Slip? Or Precursor?




Palin defends McCain over comment


Sep 17, 6:58 PM (ET)

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said Wednesday that Democrats were out of bounds for criticizing John McCain when he said the fundamentals of the economy are strong.

In an interview with Fox News Channel, Palin said: "It was an unfair attack on the verbiage that Sen. McCain chose to use because the fundamentals, as he was having to explain afterwards, he means our work force, he means the ingenuity of the American people. And of course, that is strong and that is the foundation of our economy."

Verbiage

noun [U] FORMAL DISAPPROVING

Language which is very complicated and which contains a lot of unnecessary words:

“His explanation was wrapped up in so much technical verbiage that I simply couldn't understand it.”
Cambridge OnLine Dictionary



My guess is that her quote speaks for itself. I'm not sure I'm ready for four years of this. On the other hand, Ms. Palin is often lauded for her candor. I assume that includes her recent reference to the "Palin-McCain" ticket, and the above insight about "verbiage."

***************
For my anonymous Clinton supporter and reader: I'm not sure if this qualifies as "criticism," "bashing," both, or neither.

"I'm not sure I'm ready for four years of this."

Sure you are! After the bar lowering of the last 8 years I think we can take anything! Is it sad that I'm actually beginning to look forward to America losing economic power in the world? Here's an interesting lecture on just that!

We saw the Palin speech on TV when she said "This is what you can expect from the Palin / McCain White House".
They had us rolling in the aisles!!! She a funny person.

But she can see Alaska from her house. Surely that is an asset in her bid for world domination!?

I prefer the spelling "Verbage" when discussing quotes by Palin or McCain.

/ver'b*j/ A deliberate misspelling and mispronunciation of verbiage that assimilates it to the word "garbage".

I think that spelling is more appropriate.
