Let’s call it a rescue, because it is a rescue

Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill to repeal Cold War laws allowing the firing of teachers and other public employees for being communists.

McCain has a cunning plan to convince the American people to support the Wall Street Bailout: “the first thing I’d do is say, Let’s not call it a bailout. Let’s call it a rescue, because it is a rescue. It’s a rescue of Main Street America.”

He also phoned Bush this morning to suggest that he simply go ahead without Congressional approval. Evidently Treasury’s got like a trillion dollars just sitting around.

Sarah Palin about Thursday’s debate with Biden: “I’ve never met him before. But, I’ve been hearing about his Senate speeches since I was in like 2nd grade.” Admit it, Sarah: you never heard of Joe Biden (or, indeed, John McCain) until three weeks ago.

When the seemingly ubiquitous Katie Couric asked if Palin really wanted to be making fun of someone’s age and experience, she claimed that comment wasn’t meant negatively: “So he’s got a tremendous amount of experience and, you know, I’m the new energy, the new face, the new ideas and he’s got the experience based on many many years in the Senate and voters are gonna have a choice there of what it is that they want in these next four years.”

The new energy! The new face! The new, um.... ideas?
