Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., today told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the American people don’t know much about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin “and she is now being thrust on a stage without a script and everyone is curious about how much she knows."
More pointedly, McCaskill said of Palin’s opponent, Sen. Joe Biden, Del., that he “has a tendency to talk forever and sometimes say things that are kind of stupid.”
“He a regular guy and … he doesn’t parse his words and he’s not hyper-careful,” she said. “He’s very authentic."
She then seemed to regret what she’d said.
“I was probably having a Joe Biden moment myself,” McCaskill said of her candid moment minutes before.
