Did McCain's folks vet this?

Many bloggers and columnists thought John McCain's VP pick was a little on the cynical side -- pick a woman and pick up many unhappy Democratic women voters still upset over Hillary Clinton's primary loss. But Sarah Palin hasn't always been about sister solidarity. The YouTube clip below of an on-air interview from January has Gov. Palin simply giggling in response as a talk radio host attacks one of her opponents , a cancer survivor, as a "cancer" and a "bitch." She then says she would be honored for the radio jock to attend her State of the State address. One doubts this will impress many Hillary supporters.

Here also is an opinion column from the Anchorage Daily News about the interview.
