Skip to comments.Traitor Kevin Madden: Responsible for the anonymous attacks aired on FoxNews tonight
Posted on 11/05/2008 7:44:00 PM PST by Charlie Fairbanks
One week prior to the general election, former Romney spokesman Kevin Madden took to the airwaves (on CNN) and defamed Sarah Palin, setting off a media storm over an alleged fight between Team McCain and Team Palin. They were the very early opening salvos in the battle for the party. Fox News expanded on off-the-record anti-Palin comments tonight. Was traitor Kevin Madden for those comments?
Another difference: Mr. Madden is a traitor to the Republican Party. He violated Reagans Eleventh Commandment by attacking Sarah Palin one week prior to the general election.
According to several reputable blogs (redstate.com, townhall.com, American Spectator and the Atlantic) have reported that on or about October 28, 2008, Mr. Madden - while working for the McCain campaign - stated the following during an appearance on CNN: Yes. And thats an indication just how unseasoned Sarah Palin is as a national candidate. That comment and ones off the record set off a firestorm about Republican infighting.
Fox News reported tonight that there had been several off the record comments in which the source indicated that Governor Palin didnt know (1) the signatories to NAFTA; and (2) that Africa is a continent, not a country. MFP does not know if Mr. Madden is responsible for the comments. There were several other very personal comments that do not deserve to repeated. Whoever was responsible for these accusations should come forward and defend them because they are absolutely ludicrous. Are we to believe that Sarah Palin, a college educated governor, the daughter of two educators and mother of five, does not know the difference between a continent and a country. Are we to believe that Sarah Palin, a governor of a state with a very long border with Canada, does not know that Canada, Mexico and the US are the three NAFTA signatories?
MFP does not believe that Governor Mitt Romney is responsible for these cowardly attacks. Mitt is an honorable man who worked hard for the McCain-Palin ticket. MFP does not, however, believe that Kevin Madden is a lone gunman. He is part of a crew who will attempt to blame Sarah Palin for yesterdays defeat. Yes, this is the opening salvo in the next phase in the battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party and MFP will stand against it.
Sarah Palin inspired the Republican base and was personally responsible for the surge of the McCain-Palin campaign after the convention. She reached millions because she is the real Republican deal. Palin is for less government, lower taxes. She is pro-family and pro-Second Amendment. If anyone wants to debate policy and GOP direction, then MFP is ready.
Romney is old news. Hopefully he’ll just fade away and take this scumbag Madden with him.
I still want to know what girly man was supposedly offended by seeing her in a bathrobe. I can’t get passed that one.
The rats leave the sinking ship; but the joke’s on them: this ship won’t sink but the rats will be left to drown.
As soon as I heard Cameron speak of this Madden immediately came to mind.
We cannot stand for this behaivor in our party... We have to be loyal to the party. This kind of back stabbing is one of the reasons we as a party have failed. Give it up to the democrats, they grab on to those talking points and spew them out relentlessly when everybody and their mother, knows it’s a bold face lie. 2010 We take back Congress!
I thought I noted negative spin out of the woman who worked with Hume’s panel last night, can’t think of her name and not last night....her husband worked for Mitt. As a Mitt supporter I don’t want to think Mitt was responsible,I do think his supporters would want to try to discredit her for the future. Others also. I never heard of Huck’s people joining the campaign, seems some of Rudy’s folks did.
I got the emails from mymanmitt.com until early September when THEY started cutting down Sarah.
I would believe Sarah before I would believe any of their crap.
Went to the link. Madden sounds like Republican elitist.
Who / what is MFP?
Defend the lady!
Then he turned to his son and said, "Shoot one mosquito with a shotgun and the others take notice."

This is the type of flesh eating bacteria that must be purged from our party.
They are terrified of a Palin.
She doesn’t want to pay homage to their bulls&%t.
I will be supporting Palin and other “outsiders”. The old guard brought us the debacle last night.
Thanks for posting.
When was the last time the party was loyal to you? 1988?
You’re talking about Nina Easton - she has been a poison pill against Sarah from day one. Remember when Palin was first announced? The negative rumors were said to have come from Romney’s camp. I’ll see if I can find a link.
Nothing would suprise me, I can’t stand the woman.
Someone please tell me how to get hold of Madden.
More important than sounding off to weasel Madden is how do we let every R. organization and every future candidate know that any back-stabbing weasels who attack Governor Palin like this are PERSONA NON GRATA...... find out IF this Madden character is involved in this (but just his quoted comment on CNN about how “unseasoned” his own VP candidate is, made DURING the campaign is bad enough)...... anyone involved in back-stabbing Governor Palin must be blocked from all future employment for any Republicans who want our support.
The sad part is Sarah Palin got more support from Lynn Forester de Rothschild than she got from many prominent party members.
It is a sad commentary, isn’t it? I have a news flash...they do not hold the patent on intellect. They are no better than a an Alaskan yahoo or a Southern redneck (me). I hope we all take notice of what many of them think of us.
