John McCain Disses Sarah Palin on 'The Tonight Show'

This is a strange one. John McCain goes on Jay Leno's program last night, and, without any real prompting, takes a shot at his former running mate. Watch:

Really, what gives? Would it have hurt McCain to have included Sarah Palin's name in the list of non-Rush-Limbaugh-GOP talent? The category was Republican governors, too. So there can be no mistaking who he chose to omit. "I've left out someone's name, and I'm going to hear about it..." Gee, ya think?

The whole "I don't want the president to fail" thing would have been the headline were it not for the incredibly odd diss on the woman he once touted as knowing "more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America." I guess the Arizona Senator has changed his mind.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
