The Republican presidential candidate has been asking friends:
what is the difference between Sarah Palin and a pitbull?
The friendly canine eventually lets go, is the McCain punchline.Highlights: Newsweek's Special Election Project | Newsweek.com
NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end
department stores was more extensive than previously reported.
McCain himself rarely spoke to Palin during the campaign, and aides
kept him in the dark about the details of her spending on clothes because
they were sure he would be offended.
One night, Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter went to her hotel room to brief her.
After a minute, Palin sailed into the room wearing nothing but a towel,
with another on her wet hair. She told them to chat with her laconic husband,
Todd. "I'll be just a minute," she said.
