It may be late in the campaign, but a new catch phrase for John McCain and his presidential quest may have been unveiled today in Leesburg, Va.

Sarah Palin, speaking to a characteristically enthusiastic crowd, was reciting her tried-and-true list of criticisms of Barack Obama when she was interrupted by a chant: ‘Use your brain, vote McCain.’

The Republican vice presidential candidate seemed genuinely surprised -- and pleased -- by the slogan.

‘You betcha,’ she responded (using her own catch phrase). ‘That’s good.’
