As the furor over all of the new revelations about how little Sarah Palin was vetted by the McCain campaign builds, I just heard Republican South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford on MSNBC (at around 7:06 PM CT) offer the latest potential lame excuse for why McCain didn't vet her properly:
Any of us as public figures have a public record and a public life. So, the fact is, she's been vetted by the people of Alaska and is walking around with 80% approval ratings... So there's been a lot of vetting going on but maybe not in the sense you're talking about.
You've got to be kidding me, right? What he's basically saying is that McCain doesn't have to vet Sarah Palin thoroughly because she has high approval ratings? Really?
Earlier: Why Not Vetting Sarah Palin Matters; McCain Didn't Vet VP Sarah Palin. Period.
