Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is still a subject of fascination by the media in Great Britain, which offered this interview with her today, where she describes that she felt punched in the gut when she was disinvited to the funeral of John McCain, for whom she was vice presidential running mate in 2008.
“It’s been bizarre. When I was tapped to run as the first woman VP candidate on the Republican ticket, I had nearly 90 per cent approval rating as the governor of the largest state,” she said on the show Good Morning Britain.
‘It made sense to me and my supporters why John McCain did tap me. But, yeah, once getting out there on that national stage and realizing that there are so many snakes in politics, they are so many snakes in the Republican party who were running the show and allowing me to get clobbered,” she said, filming from her home studio in Wasilla.
“They were looking for someone to blame for their really crappy type of campaign that they ran. I was a scapegoat,” she said.
