Skip to comments.McCain tussles with Palin over whipping up a mob mentality
Posted on 10/11/2008 9:45:26 PM PDT by Bratch
With his electoral prospects fading by the day, Senator John McCain has fallen out with his vice-presidential running mate about the direction of his White House campaign.
McCain has become alarmed about the fury unleashed by Sarah Palin, the moose-hunting pitbull in lipstick, against Senator Barack Obama. Cries of terrorist and kill him have accompanied the tirades by the governor of Alaska against the Democratic nominee at Republican rallies.
Mark Salter, McCains long-serving chief of staff, is understood to have told campaign insiders that he would prefer his boss, a former Vietnam prisoner of war, to suffer an honourable defeat rather than conduct a campaign that would be out of character and likely to lose him the election.

It looks like native born Americans are going to have to drag McCain kicking and screaming into the Oval Office. We can try I guess. The future of our country depends on him winning this thing.
Obama may well win the election. Then again McCain might win. But you have to admit right now there is a feeling in the air that the gloating on the left has come too soon. It’s not good for the Obama campaign that their supporters think they have won. That doesn’t bring out people like the fear on our side will.
Yet another Freeper who swallows the MSM garbage hook, line, and sinker.
I guess these idiots don’t realize mCCain don’t have a chance unless the voters hear about Obama’s treasonous friends. Not to mention he could have shut down his campaign last month without Palin. Every dime the Party takes in is because of Palin. If McCain gets elected it will be on her skirttails.
What “whacked out mobs”?
Getting real tired of the negative defeated attitude of many here today.
Get your a$$ out there and vote and spread the message.
Quit all the damn whining!
It does seem like he is more concerned about staying on good terms with the Democrats.
Spoken like the loser that RINOs like McCain are.
More PsyOps propaganda.
Buried in the middle of that steaming pile of bull is a ray of truth:
“A spokesman for McCain denied he and Palin had fallen out over her aggressive attacks. Vice-presidential candidates are typically the tip of the spear and further out in front than the candidate for president. This is pretty standard fare, he said.”
“Cries of ‘terrorist’ and ‘kill him’ have accompanied the tirades by the governor of Alaska against the Democratic nominee at Republican rallies.”
WTF? Is the MSM shallow enough to actually eat this nonsense up? I thought they had SOME standards. Is it possible that the history books will record McCain’s struggle with the fanaticism of his crowds? MSM, you are outdoing yourself.
I recently saw Neil Cavuto interview Murdoch. Mordoch told Cavoto that he is supporting McCain.
How many cries of “kill him” and “terrorist” have there been at these rallies?
The Media builds random nothings into blazing somethings.
Tell a lie often enough and it becomes the truth. Pravda has nothing on these guys.
Mark Salter, McCains long-serving chief of staff, is understood to have told campaign insiders that he would prefer his boss, a former Vietnam prisoner of war, to suffer an honourable defeatSo McCain's limp campaign is Mark Salters fault?
Your screen name isn't sarcasm, apparently.
"We" apparently are more concerned about that possibility than McCain, who is worried about losing gracefully rather than having the balls to fight back.
“”McCain will do great on Tuesday!!!””
What are you basing that on other than wishful thinking? He was only good at missing chances in the first two debates. Is he going to come up with another Socialist scheme for this debate?
“Mob mentality” What is wrong with these people...Moltav cocktails...slashing of yard signs....paying for votes with cigarettes.....and we are a mob?
What is going on with the media!
I’ll believe McCain is “tussling” with Palin when I see heel marks on his forehead.
The things newsmen come up with...
What a bunch of bs. Who is this nut job?
I'm not sure that is possible if McCain has given up and is worried about losing with honor.
