    Default New John McCain robocall stars ... Sarah Palin!

    New McCain Robocall Stars ... Sarah Palin!

    By Greg Sargent - October 20, 2008, 3:40PM

    Sarah Palin may have condemned robocalls yesterday as intrusive and a drain on people's attention spans, but that didn't stop her from recording her own robocall on behalf of the McCain campaign.

    Carol Johnson, a retiree from Spooner, Wisconsin, and a second reader from Nevada, report to us that they received robocalls starring Palin herself.

    Palin's robocall touted both her and McCain as "mavericks" who have a feel for people's economic suffering, vowed that they would reform Wall Street and Washington, and hit Barack Obama and Joe Biden for not "listening" to the American people.

    Here's the script:
    Hi, this is Sarah Palin. One of our local campaign volunteers just called you, and I wanted to follow up and ask for your support. You know our opponents may talk a lot, but they haven't done much listening. I know what it's like to be a hard-working mom. I know how hard it is to make ends meet during tough times like this. John McCain and I know our country is hurting, and we know how to turn it around. We'll get our economy back on track. we'll cut your taxes and lower prices at the pump and at the grocery store. John McCain and I are the mavericks who will reform Washington, Wall Street., and all the wasteful government in between. I hope John McCain and I can count on your support on November 4. We won't let you down. Paid for by McCain-Palin 2008 at 703-418-2008.
    Palin's call would seem to be at odds with her own public statements about the tactic. In a Q and A with reporters late yesterday, she said she'd prefer that the campaign not resort to such calls at all, describing them as "kind of draining in terms of Americans' attention span."

    "They get a bit irritated with just being inundated," Palin added.

    The McCain campaign didn't immediately comment.

    What a lot of crap saying they are for the people. In the meantime McSame and mooseballs Palin go around calling a tax break for the middleclass socialism. In other words when it's a tax cut for the wealthy or corporation it's not socialism. Anyone who buys this bullshit from these two need their head examined. It's ashame with all the loss of jobs and high cost of everything here McCain wants to become president and push Dubya's same failed policies. Then he wonders why Obama and others say he is just like Bush.

    Another reason I'm glad I don't have a land line, no political calls.
