Washington, D.C. – A startling tape recording of John McCain discussing Sarah Palin, his pick for vice president, was leaked to the press this afternoon. It’s believed a disgruntled campaign worker made the tape available to the media. This is a transcript of the conversation.
Voice: Just talked to Rove. Lieberman’s out.
McCain: What? That little piece of shit. You know he wouldn’t last two hours in a North Vietnamese prison camp. He’d squeal like a pig the first time he got his balls squeezed.
Voice: Yes Sir.
McCain: Okay. Who does that leave?
Voice: Uh, only one person. Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska.
McCain: Palin? Don’t know her.
Voice: Here’s her picture.
McCain: Whoa. She’s hot.
Voice: Former beauty queen, I think. But very inexperienced.
McCain: She looks experienced to me. In a good way.
Voice: Sir, she’s articulate but not all that bright. Biden will rip her to shreds in a debate.
McCain: And check out that rack. Those things could suffocate a man.
Voice: Right. She’s been governor less than two years. Mayor of some little shit hole town before that.
McCain: You said ‘shit hole.”
Voice: Sir. Are you all right?
McCain: I want her...to be my running mate.
Voice: Are you sure about that? You don’t know—
McCain: She’s the one. I feel it. Get her one the phone now.
McCain: Don’t argue with me. Make this happen.
Voice: Yes sir.
McCain: I gotta take a leak…and review this picture further.
