Mrs. Lipstick-on-a-pig a little kookie

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 5:21 PM

We knew this was coming, especially after Sarah Palin's book trashed some members of the McCain camp.

Now there's a new book by two journalists in-the-know and they're telling anyone that will listen what they really thought of Mrs. Lipstick-on-a-pig.

But what's scary as hell is she came so close to the highest office in the land even though she doesn't understand some of its basic tenets -- like the separation of Church and State.

Sarah Palin believed that Sen. John McCain chose her to be his running mate in the 2008 presidential race because of "God's plan," according to a top political strategist in the Arizona Republican's campaign.

In an interview with the CBS news magazine "60 Minutes," Steve Schmidt described Palin as "very calm -- nonplussed" after McCain met with her at his Arizona ranch just before putting her on the Republican ticket. McCain had planned to name Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) as his choice until word leaked, sparking what Schmidt called political blowback over selecting the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee.

Schmidt, McCain's chief campaign adviser, said he asked Palin about her serenity in the face of becoming "one of the most famous people in the world." He quoted her as saying, "It's God's plan." Palin has not ruled out a run for the presidency.
