In an interview that aired last night, CBS News anchor Katie Couric confronted the Republican ticket about an incident Saturday night where a voter in Philadelphia asked Governor Palin about her take on Pakistan while she was ordering a cheese steak. In her answer, Palin said she would "stop the terrorists from coming any further in." The problem -- McCain has publicly criticized Democratic hopeful Barack Obama for talking tactics in public, especially about Pakistan. When pressed, McCain stood up for his veep choice and, in what appeared to be a grand act of chivalry, he said the the incident was an example of "gotcha journalism." Couric pointed out the question was asked by a voter and not a reporter. He stuck to his guns, saying he was "proud" of Palin.
Is it appropriate for him to say he's proud of her, like he's her father?
