Palin blacked out McCain's name with a felt marker recently, saying she is fond of McCain but wanted to travel "incognito."
McCain said Sunday he has no problems with the blacked-out name and he and his wife Cindy remain close to the Palins after the presidential campaign. But he jokingly questioned discussing Palin's visor when there are much bigger issues like climate change and healthcare to talk about.
