Jo Six-Pack

America just spent eight years having a beer with George W. Bush and the hangover sucks, but Sarah Palin is hankering for a little hair of the dog.

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin dismissed the media's coverage of her candidacy, saying she'll represent the "Joe Six-Pack American" as vice president, and that she and her family understand the challenges facing middle-class Americans under the current financial crisis.

In a radio interview with conservative blogger and columnist Hugh Hewitt, Palin says she’s not concerned by criticisms of her performance in recent network interviews with ABC's Charles Gibson and CBS' Katie Couric, which many -- including some former conservative supporters -- have said showed her unprepared to be vice president.

"Oh, I think they're just not used to someone coming in from the outside saying you know what? It's time that normal Joe six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency, and I think that that's kind of taken some people off guard, and they’re out of sorts, and they’re ticked off about it," Palin told Hewitt.
Excuse me, but we already have "Joe six-pack American" in the Oval Office. He ate up all our food and trashed the place. We don't need another one anywhere near the White House.

The party is over. It's time for the smart guys to get to work.
