McCain Vows to Close Scandal Deficit

This is crazy... he (Schmidt) said the media is asking more questions about Palin's pregnant daughter than about Obama's real estate deal with fundraiser Tony Rezko, who recently was convicted on corruption charges.

In a bold move, McCain announced today that with the selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate, he intended to eliminate the scandal deficit with the Democrats.

"We just couldn't stand the fact that Obama was so far out ahead on the scandal meeter. Obama had managed an excitingly edgy internet-age campaign, with over six million scandalous emails about Muslim this, flag-pin that, yah yah yah. We had to come out of the gate fighting," said McCain. "We expect Sarah to close our scandal gap with the Democrats by the end of the week."

Press watchers have noted the fact that Obama has received more coverage than McCain this season. That statistic is quickly narrowing as Sarah Palin stories permeate every paper and internet outlet.

Rick Davis, McCain's campaign manager, pointed out the new slogan for the closing day of the Republican Convention. "Four more scandals! Four more scandals!"

"The American people demand to be entertained by scandals," he said. "And we intend to deliver."

With the number of Sarah Palin scandals quickly rising, McCain should have little problem keeping his promise to the American people.
