Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin — Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) onetime running mate — was seen in Hawaii wearing a McCain campaign visor with the letters blacked out. Palin said she was simply trying not to be noticed. “Every shop on the beach sells visors for about $5.99,” said ABC’s Sam Champion.

“Head gear worn by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is getting a lot of attention. On vacation in Hawaii [where she once lived but dropped out of college], she was seen wearing a visor with the name of her running mate, John Mccain, blacked out with permanent marker.

“When asked why, she said while she was honored to run for office with McCain, she was looking for a little privacy. In her words, ‘so much for trying to be incognito.’ I think she probably drew more attention to herself, actually, than less.

“Well, we’re covering it here in the first half hour,” he added. “So much for incognito.”

In her defense, Palin told Politico: “I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way. I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection. As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago. So much for trying to be incognito.”

The Palin family was taking a break from her nationwide book tour aimed at promoting her memoir, Going Rogue.
