Sarah Palin will be missing from action Sunday a.m.
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2008/09/sarah-palin-w-1.html ^

Posted on 09/06/2008 8:11:40 PM PDT by kcvl

Today, top McCain aide Rick Davis indicated the campaign isn't in any hurry to slot Palin for a Sunday show appearance -- and will do so only if he and other strategists determine it serves the ticket's purposes, not because some may view it as a required initiation for a major political player.

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show, Davis said, "I'd never commit to anything in the future. ... Our strategy is in our hands, not the media's. We're going to do what's in our best interests to try to win the election. If we think going on TV news shows are [sic] in our best interests, we'll do it. If we don't, we won't."

They can go take a hike! Who died and made them God? Besides no one watches the Sunday interview shows.

The news media need to be invited into our den to be examined and cross-examined. They are the ones who committed the atrocities. They have something they should answer for.

What these clowns are missing is that she does not need to “study up” to figure out what she believes. She has to be certain how to explain what JOHN MCCAIN believes. There are even some idiots on the right questioning where she stands on issues. Attention idiots: from now until at least November 4th, she stands for whatever John McCain stands for - that’s how it works.

I have no doubt they will belittle her once she does start doing the shows, saying “she’s just parroting McCain’s positions.” That’s what she is supposed to do!

Right now she needs to be on the road with McCain, “striking while the iron is hot” to whip up enthusiasm and speak to large crowds of people. Interviews will come - who cares when?

To be honest...I think she will eventually make the circuit..but she has to spend the next two weeks cramming McCain’s policies, strategies, etc. We wouldn’t want her going on TV right away possibly saying something that doesn’t jive with the McCain campaign..it would be awkward if they contradicted each other...

Gov Palin or the RNC or the McCain/Palin campaign don’t owe the media any explanations as to what she is doing. Gov. Palin doesn’t need the media and they know it.

There needs to be wholesale firings in the MSM by the owners over the bias and outright partisanship. There is no sense of balance and fairness at all. They might as well be an official arm of the DNC.

She is in Church on Sunday Morning

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you
Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,
To speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.
For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.
But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
That having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.
But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.
Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition,
Knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.

Good. Tell the MSM that they'll appear on their stations only after they ask Obama about Ayers, Rezco, Wright, etc.

I’m so happy the McCain camp is responding like it is. The longer they wait to have her give an interview the higher the viewship who will watch her hit it out of the park. Plus it just shows the arrogance of the press again and their irrelevance.

That's not true. The newspaper and magazine writers watch the Sunday morning talk shows. They then spend the rest of Sunday writing hit pieces (on Republicans) or fluff pieces (on Democrats) which are published on Monday and Tuesday.

This decorated toilet paper is then read by the chattering class, who discuss it on television for the next four days. If it's really juicy they invite the hit / fluff author on tv, which was the reason the article was written to begin with.

By Friday they are running out of material and are picking apart stump speeches, hoping someone made a gaffe. If the chatterers are really lucky, the campaigns have issued 'statements' responding to the articles and that will give them something to chatter about until Sunday.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Palin is a complete 10 megaton warhead, and needs to be brought out selectively when the damage is needed.

Right now, it’s not. McCain’s doing well on his own.

hussein’s having a real problem now.. McCain alone (After Palin) is strong enough now. When the polls start heading somewhat dem, they’ll bring her out.

“..since the media has been so nice to Palin and McCain...”

And that is what is at work here, the Davis just semi quitely told the media to go screw themselves until they behave and drop the slime.

Notice Davis said this on Morning Joe, not made the rounds of Talk Shows saying the same thing, the staffs at those shows are (IMO) working the back channel and..”negotiating”...

Palin will make the rounds, but if you can squeeze two weeks of fair coverage by playing hardball, why wouldn’t you?

Smart play IMO.

I supported the selection of Palin, in fact I was an early advocate, however, I hope that the McCain campaign does not make the same mistake as the Bush-41 campaign made in trying to micromanage Quayle. She’s a big girl and I think she can handle the likes of Little Dick Gregory and George Stephanopoulos.

Sooner or latter, the emotions behind Palinpalooza is going to wear off and she is going to have to face the gauntlet, which I think she can do with grace and show people that she is really capable.

I have faith in her, that’s why I supported her selection form the beginning.

The media is trying to insinuate no one can be a candidate for office in Washington unless they approve and vet them. Hopefully the McCain campaign will stick to their guns on this one.

Imagine one of the biggest stories in the world right now and the MSM can't even talk to her. LOL

The Brits seem to love her. Maybe they should let them interview her first. And I have said Megan on Fox has really stood for her so eventually she should get an interview. Absolutely no BOR ever.

From the article you linked:

If they dug into Obama's connections to black separatists and domestic terrorists and other hope-and-change advocates as thoroughly as they're digging into Palin's PTA records and pizza delivery receipts, we might have a whole different election.

Now that's worth repeating !!!!
