Ready on Day One, My Friends

Palin's language skills are rubbing off on McCain. Or maybe he's just showing his age, but recently he has been bungling lines like crazy.

"I think you may have noticed that Senator Obama's supporters have been saying some pretty nasty things about western Pennsylvania lately," McCain said, as folks booed.

"You know," he continued, "I couldn't agree with them more."

(Resounding silence)

"I couldn't disagree with you, I couldn't agree with you more than the fact that western Pennsylvania is the most patriotic, most God loving, most patriotic part of America," McCain said. "And this is a great part of the country. My friends I couldn't agr-- I could not disagree with those critics more, this is a great part of America."

To be fair, remembering a complicated statement------you know, with two negatives, couldn't and disagree-----is hard, especially when it's not something you actually believe.

Agree, disagree; right, left; Sunni, Shia; Sarah Palin, someone actually qualified to be vice president--cut the guy a break. These words/concepts are all sooo tricky.
