McCain Defends Palin Against 'Vicious' Attacks

Former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain of Arizona is defending his former running mate, Sarah Palin, against the “vicious attacks” the left has leveled against her.

“I’ve never seen anything like it in all the years that I’ve been in politics,” McCain told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren this week.

McCain avoided mention of some of the harshest attacks on her that have come from some of his former campaign staffers, but said he is “very proud” of the former Alaska governor.

“And I believe she will play a major role in politics in America. Americans like her,” McCain said, “whether the New York Times and others happen to like that or not.”

The senator said he thinks the media attention that follows Palin wherever she goes is “fantastic.”
