McCain is sarcastic with a Reporter; modern era of peace and love ends

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Republican presidential candidate John McCain, once renowned for his jocular sessions with journalists, appeared irritable and at times sarcastic in an interview in which he defended running mate Sarah Palin’s experience and campaign ads critical of rival Barack Obama.
… When it was suggested that Palin’s lack of experience worried voters, McCain turned sarcastic.
“Really? I haven’t detected that in the polls, I haven’t detected that among the base,” he said. “If there’s a Georgetown cocktail party person who, quote, calls himself a conservative who doesn’t like her, good luck. I don’t dismiss him. I think the American people have overwhelmingly shown their approval.”
At another point, McCain was asked if he’s strayed from his “straight talk” image with advertising that some have labeled deceptive. McCain dryly responded, “It would be valuable if you gave some examples for an assertion of that nature.”

Harry Reid repeated his calls that McCain be given a “time out for his behavior.” An aide later clarified that Reid was not in fact referring to any particular Senator when he spoke.
