McCain Tells Imus that Palin is the 'Most Qualified' for VP in Recent History

John McCain to Don Imus on the question of Sarah Palin's network TV interviews:

She did fine in the interviews with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric. If I called you up and said, "What's the Bush Doctrine?," I doubt if you would know what it is. I think you'd probably have a pretty funny answer. She did a great job in those interviews.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, there's your new standard: If Imus doesn't know it, then screw it -- the vice president of the United States doesn't need to know it, either.

Bonus lunacy from McCain:

I think she's the most qualified of any that has run recently for vice president, to tell you the truth.

Yes, really. Sarah Palin: not only more qualified to be VP than, say, Dan Quayle, but more qualified than Joe Biden, Dick Cheney, John Edwards, Al Gore, Jack Kemp, Lloyd Bentsen -- and, of course, McCain's first choice this year, Joe Lieberman.
