Jim Webb Takes Aim at Sarah Palin


ROANOKE, VA – Virginia’s soon-to-be senior senator, Jim Webb, was the warm up act for Barack Obama on the Democratic nominee’s seventh visit to Virginia since clinching the Democratic nomination.

Webb, who at one point was mentioned as a possible running mate for Obama, praised his colleague from Illinois for picking Joe Biden. “People know Joe Biden, and people know that he is capable in a moment of stepping forward and assuming the responsibilities of president of the United States,” he said.

And while he called John McCain a friend, he questioned the GOPer’s judgment. “Now John McCain chose Gov Palin,” he continued as the crowd loudly booed. “Do you really think that Sarah Palin was the most qualified person in the Republican party?” he questioned, reminding voters that the Republican ticket’s slogan is “Country First.”

Standing in a hall in front of more than 8,000 in red Southwestern Virginia, he continued, “I don’t know how many people here like country music, I like country music. There was a song about two years ago, ‘I know what I was doing but what was I thinking?’ I think John McCain is probably singing that sing right now.”

But he wasn’t done quite yet.  “At the debate Governor Palin turned around and said, ‘Nice to meet you, can I call you Joe?’ And what I was really thinking is Joe what you ought to do is say, ‘Yeah, you can whatever you want and in two months you’re going to be calling me Mr. Vice President.’”
