“Privacy.”

John McCain gave Florida Governor and potential running mate Charlie Crist a bit of love before a fundraiser Wednesday night: “Oh, I am sure that in many respects Charlie Crist is qualified [to be veep]. He’s had other offices. As we know, he was attorney general as well. This is a big and diverse state… We have a large number of people that we are considering, but I just don’t mention anybody’s name because then it starts a process that could end up in an invasion of their privacy.” Who’s brave enough to go dig into that closet? Meanwhile, where’s that “sex” tape? [St. Petersburg Times via Joe.My.God.]
