We have our first major Sarah Palin gaffe. But Sarah Palin didn’t make it:
He says, as he must, that he wasn’t referring to Palin. If not, it’s a remarkably tone-deaf statement.
UPDATE: Video replaced with one that makes the point more clearly — and that explains why McCain using the same analogy for Hillary’s health care plan wasn’t the same thing. There had been no recent lipstick references by Hillary. There was one by Palin — the most famous line in her speech. That’s the difference.
