Shhh…don’t say that out loud

remember in the debates when mccain chastized obama for saying that he’d launch strikes in pakistan?

well here’s mccain and palin trying to excuse her same exact statement:

“We had a great discussion with President Zardari as we talked about what it is that America can and should be doing together to make sure that the terrorists do not cross borders and do not ultimately put themselves in a position of attacking America again or her allies,” said Palin. “And we will do what we have to do to secure the United States of America and her allies.”

“Is that something you shouldn’t say out loud, Sen. McCain?” asked Couric.

“Of course not,” replied McCain. “But, look, I understand this day and age of ‘gotcha’ journalism. Is that a pizza place? In a conversation with someone who you didn’t hear … the question very well, you don’t know the context of the conversation, grab a phrase. Gov. Palin and I agree that you don’t announce that you’re going to attack another country …”

“Are you sorry you said it?” questioned Couric.

“… and the fact …” trailed McCain.

“Governor?” asked Couric.

“Wait a minute,” interrupted McCain. “Before you say, ‘is she sorry she said it,’ this was a ‘gotcha’ sound bite that, look …

“It wasn’t a ‘gotcha,'” said Couric. “She was talking to a voter.”
