John McCain Finds the Idea of Sarah Palin for Vice-President Laughable

Former presidential nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) (R) announced that he is endorsing Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney during a town hall meeting at Central High School January 4, 2012 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Romney beat former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum by only eight votes in Tuesday's "first in the nation" Iowa Caucuses.

America: Hey John McCain, tell us a funny joke!! C’mon. We need to laugh.

John McCain: OK! Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. It’s kinda like a knock-knock joke, only it starts with someone asking who I think should be the vice-presidential candidate should be. Can someone help me?

Erica Hill, Host of CBS This Morning: Sure, why not. John McCain, who should be Mitt Romney’s running mate?

John McCain, laughing uncontrollably: “I think it should be Sarah Palin.”

America: I think we have heard that one before. So that was all a big improv sketch, that 2008 thing? Huh. Really got a little out of control.
