Skip to comments.McCain camp trying to scapegoat Palin
Posted on 10/30/2008 7:17:48 AM PDT by Roberts
John McCain's campaign is looking for a scapegoat. It is looking for someone to blame if McCain loses on Tuesday.
And it has decided on Sarah Palin.
In recent days, a McCain adviser told Dana Bash of CNN: She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.
Imagine not taking advice from the geniuses at the McCain campaign. What could Palin be thinking?
Also, a top McCain adviser told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is a whack job.
Maybe she is. But who chose to put this whack job on the ticket? Wasnt it John McCain? And wasnt it his first presidential-level decision?
And if you are a 72-year-old presidential candidate, wouldnt you expect that your running mates fitness for high office would come under a little extra scrutiny? And, therefore, wouldnt you make your selection with care? (To say nothing about caring about the future of the nation?)
McCain didnt seem to care that much. McCain admitted recently on national TV that he didnt know her well at all before he chose Palin.
But why not? Why didnt he get to know her better before he made his choice?
Its not like he was rushed. McCain wrapped up the Republican nomination in early March. He didnt announce his choice for a running mate until late August.
Wasnt that enough time for McCain to get to know Palin? Wasnt that enough time for his crackerjack vetters to investigate Palins strengths and weaknesses, check through records and published accounts, talk to a few people, and learn that she was not only a diva but a whack job diva?

So does this mean when they win, Gov Palin is on top?
Roger Simon is a leftist tool from Politico.
I doubt McCain himself is, probably typical whiners are - that, or the media is completely making this up.
If it weren’t for Palin, McCain would be down by 20% as many Conservatives couldn’t hold their nose for McCain (unless he chose Cantor or Jindall- neither could do for the campaign what Palin did).
ROTFLMAO Apparently they did not like her going out and getting Elizabeth Hasselback.
Works for me!
This guy has been an Obama talking parrot for months now. Ignore.
Gov. Palin is the one and only reason McCain is still in the running.
When I hear this stuff I know the DNC, MSM, and Obama camp are getting desperate.
I can’t wait for the Election to be over. Then we can get back to the standard leftist agitprop.
all these liberal media’s now are trying to divide and conquer
come up with the crap stories about all of this to make it look like we’re in disarray while the cool messiah is in control
no mention of his familiy living in slums in Boston and Kenya
why not mention the illegal money he has, why no mention of the birth certificate
why no mention of his being a radical anti semitic plus racist and sexist
no they mention this crap
n o wonder I never read any of these media lots anymore
I knew this was Politico as soon as I saw the headline.
Right. If only we had someone really exciting like Tim Pawlenty or Tom Ridge instead, McCain would be running away with this election!
This columnist criticizes the McCain campaign for the two things that have raised his poll numbers the most—Palin and Joe the Plumber. Use him as a negative barometer.
The way a big grin comes across McCain’s face every time Palin speaks, I think he has absolutely no regrets in his choice.
this is about the 5th time already today where I have read a crap biased link making us look in disarray
this is the media’s tactic now for the final days, make us look hopeless and useless while ignoring all the obama illegal money
why anyone reads this garbage is beyond me anyway
just ban them all, LA times, NY times, MSNBC,NBC
infact I am amazed that some on here still watch those two channels
just ban them, it’s not like they are telling the news
We should all get our news from a search engine.
I personally get mine from Webcrawler. /s
