Republican presidential candidate John McCain was on ABC's "The View" this morning, perhaps expecting a softball interview. Instead, Barbara Walters proceeded to make him her bitch over the selection of Sarah Palin and Palin's ongoing efforts to dodge the media:

Walters:  "Tell me who she is going to reform — we aren't talking about the economy, we're not talking about housing, she was chosen to reform, who is she going to reform?"

McCain: "The Democrat Party, the Republican Party, even an independent. She'll reform all of Washington."

Walters: "How? What will she do? What is she going to reform specifically, senator?"

McCain: "The fact is she was a reform governor, she took on an incumbent governor of her own party and defeated him. She sold the airplane and fired the chef –"

Walters: "She sold the airplane at a loss.."

McCain (later): "If we had done what I asked Senator Obama to do (regarding McCain's request for a series of town-hall-style debates), I don't think you'd see the same tenor of this campaign. Why don't you ask Obama the next time he's on this show why won't he be in town meetings with me?"

Walters: "You bring us Sarah Palin and we'll ask Obama."
