So on Friday I was obsessed with the Palin pick trying to figure out what it meant for Obama and I jumped from blog to blog reading comments. On the Daily Kos I participated in a short poll asking me what the best part of Palin's speech was and the last choice won with an overwhelming 95% "McCain repeatedly checking out Palin's ass while he fingered his own wedding ring during her speech."
I had to fact check and immediately went over to CNN to re-watch the video and sure enough the teleprompter/copy of the speech is placed at Palin's butt level and McCain seems to be checking it out, over and over and over again. I laughed and made a short video counting how many times he seems to check her out. I posted it on You Tube and sent it to two people and wondered if I should post it here at all, in light of my comments about bringing the debate to a higher level. Yesterday the video had 1,500 views and today it's a 4,000! So much for a higher level of debate huh! Seriously GOP, next time pay attention to this kinda thing.
The Daily Kos picked posted the video and added: "In praising Palin's speech, Fox News (who'da guessed) noted that she did not use a teleprompter. If Governor Palin did not have one to look at, then neither did McCain. So for those who tried to provide an innocent explanation for McCain's downward glances, there was nothing else but Sarah Palin's derrière in his line of sight."
