Adman not sold on McCain-Palin ticket

(A team of Sun reporters is at the Republican National Convention this week in St. Paul.)

Republican advertising consultant, who seemed unaffiliated with the McCain campaign, totally off-message in the bar of The St. Paul last night. (Drinking white wine and by himself.)

Sun: What will this year be like?

Adman: This year is the worst for Republicans since Watergate.

Sun: Do you know Sig Rogich?

Adman: He has John McCain's cell phone (mock tone.)

Sun: What do you think of Sarah Palin?

Adman: Can she get pregnant before the election?

More Adman: She should bring a breast pump to the podium instead of a glass of water.

Adman: The election is over. (By that, he means that with early voting, there's only a month before the voting begins, in many states. Though there could be a double meaning.)

Sun: Will Palin be ready?

Adman: Of course not.

Sun: Why not?

Adman: She has to learn about every potential foreign policy crisis, and the names of about 60 prime ministers.

Demonstrating how difficult this is...

Adman: Is Costa Rica Stable.

Sun: Yes.

Adman: Do you know why?

Sun: You've stumped us.

Adman: See?

Sun: Do you know of our governor?

Adman: No, can't say that I do. OH WAIT! YES!

Still no Gibbons sightings, however.
