McCain awaiting Palin's memoir

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Count Sen. John McCain among those who are eagerly awaiting Sarah Palin's upcoming tell-all memoir.

During an event Thursday at Washington's Newseum, the Arizona senator was asked by NBC's David Gregory which part of the former Alaska governor's 432-page memoir he is looking forward to reading the most.

"The part I'm looking forward to most is the part where it energized our campaign and her selection put us ahead in the polls," McCain said of his vice presidential running mate.

The former Republican presidential candidate then volunteered what he is not particularly looking forward to reading.

"The part I am looking forward to least is some of the disagreements that took place within the campaign," the 2008 Republican presidential nominee said.

    Why do we still care about this peanut-head politician? She is a good looking woman, but a big ZERO in politics. She had her 15-minutes fame when some crazy GOP members thought she would be a good candidate to become the VP for this country, but let's get real: She is not intellectual greatness for the U.S.A. Unplug Sarah Palin, will you?

    Poor choice for a Vice President. Hey Senator McCain this cost you the election. Sarh palin is just looking for the opportunity to cash in on whatever she can get away with. She is idolized by the extreme right and she is going to milke them for everything she can. Ms. Palin... whenyou get elected president.... keep your stinkin nose out of my private life, or else..... you bectha!

    He’s looking forward to reading the part where she stabs him in the back and totally denounces him as the reason the election was lost. Let’s be honest, the former Alaskan Governor who quit her term early is loyal to herself.

    Don't you wonder what he Really thinks of Palin. Maybe some day he'll write a book and really tell it as it is. Wonder if Palin is including crayons with her coloring book?

    Republicans have done themselves a monumental diservice when they introduced Palin to the world. Republicans with a brain can see this, but don't know how to reverse the damage.

    McCain should have never been GOP presidential candiate. He votes with the Dem's on most issues. Most republicans held their nose during election. They were against both McCain and Obama policy. Hopefully the GOP will choose someone new for 2012. Palin was bashed by the media. There needs to be a new party that will listen to US.

    When we see pictures of Romney he always has this
    snotty stuck up look in his eyes. He plans and prepares this.
    He is a bastard. He thinks that hes a powerful rich man and
    we are all jealous of him. Look in the mirror Romney, good
    politicians do not make themselves threatening or make them
    selves look better than other people. You are not a good politician.
    You are a rich man who likes his status and doesn't want to
    pay his taxes.
