Sen. John McCain brushed off the semi-controversy over his former running mate's visor Sunday, attributing the blog and talk show chatter about Sarah Palin's vacation attire to "hysterical attacks" from the left.
The former Alaska governor was photographed wearing a "McCain-Palin" visor with McCain's name crossed out while she was on vacation in Hawaii. She claimed she was just trying to go "incognito," but reportedly cut her vacation short.
McCain told "Fox News Sunday" he understands Palin's explanation, and said he has a "wonderful relationship" with her family.
"Can't you take her at her word?" he said. "She's going to be a force in the Republican Party for a long time and the hysterical attacks on her from the left continue to validate that."
