McCain Was Against Palin Earmarks

Unbelievable. While mayor, Palin earmarks made John McCain's own naughty "pork list" three times. The LA Times has the skinny.

Time has oh, so much more in "Mayor Palin: A Rough Record"...

John McCain was clear about why he picked half-term Alaska governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate. "I found someone with an outstanding reputation for standing up to special interests and entrenched bureaucracies," he said in introducing her in Dayton, Ohio, on Friday. Palin was someone, he noted, "who reached across the aisle and asked Republicans, Democrats and independents to serve in government."
McCain does have a serious potential post-Senate career as an insult comic.

** Update #2: TPM sez that last year, Palin requested more earmarks per person than any other state -- including some that were criticized by McCain himself.
