Things campaign advisors shouldn't say

It's been a big week in politics, what with the Obama soiree and all (btw, I think he said everything he needed to say, and that the Biden addition makes for a really strong ticket). Then, yesterday, as expected, John McCain announced his running mate, who was not as expected.

This prompted the following quote from a McCain aide, which made it into the NYT article above:
“She’s going to learn national security at the foot of the master for the next four years, and most doctors think that he’ll be around at least that long.”
If that kind of idiocy doesn't get you fired these days, I don't know what will.
