The anonymous trashing of Sarah Palin by blabbermouth McCain aides who are leaking to Fox News is disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.
Allahs got the vid clip of a report citing unnamed McCain staffers accusing Palin of lacking, in Carl Camerons words, knowledgeability. More slime here. And here.
At least all the Hollywood and Manhattan Palin-haters were willing to sign their names and put their faces on their attacks.
Lets assume the rumor-mongers are telling the truth for a moment. Who does it damn more: Sarah Palin or McCain and his vetters who green-lighted her for the vice presidential nomination? Dont need an Ivy League degree to figure that one out.
Sarah Palin worked her heart out. She energized tens of thousands to come out who would have otherwise stayed home. She touched countless families. I didnt agree with everything she said on the campaign trail. But two fundamental conservative stands she took mattered greatly to me: She vigorously defended the Second Amendment and the sanctity of life more eloquently in practice than any of the educated conservative aristocracy.
And she did it all with a tirelessness and infectious optimism that defied the shameless, bottomless attempts by elites in both parties to bring her and her family down.
Shame on the smearers who dont have the balls to show their faces.
Thank you, Sarah Palin. Thank you for stepping up the plate and serving your country.

Quit falling into the Dem’s trap.
BTW mccain has not been invided to GOPAC.org convention.
Carl Cameron is a prick for airing that story. O’Reilly picked Cameron apart a little bit, but he should have ripped him a new one. Carl did NOTHING to get Palin’s side of the story. He relied solely on backstabbing little anonymous weasels who wish to destroy Palin’s future. Moderate GOP’s have destroyed the party and continue to do so.
no no no, we need a conservative caucus INSIDE the republican party.
we have misc. ethnic caucuses inside the party. (the homosexuals have put a mole caucus inside the republican party)
If people would quit their whining we could even have a FreeRepublic.com caucus inside the republican party.
(we can do a Freeps away cruise but we can’t get enough people together inside the republican party?)
BTW the third parties were not even a BLIP on election day. most did not even break 1000.
And your proof of this is what???
Well, for one thing, prior to Sarah's joining the ticket, Sad Grandpa wasn't drawing crowds even remotely like this:
"Moderate" Republicans demanded (and were given) carte blanche opportunity to demonstrate, once and for all, that they knew how to win at the national level, this year.
They got exactly the candidate they wanted. They got exactly the party platform they demanded. The campaign was run exactly the way they insisted it be run.
How'd that end up working out for us, again...?
They actually managed to lose to a one-term Senate Marxist with open and unapologetic terrorist ties. The ONLY thing I want to hear from Team McCain or any of its shrill little online apologists, from this day forward, is a meek and contrite: "We're sorry."
They have nothing else worthwhile what. so. EVER. to contribute to any meaningful discussion, re: either conservatism or winning electoral strategies.
They've shown they know how to lose, and lose badly. Now it's time for the conservative base to show them how to win again; and Sarah Palin is going to be the teacher.
Not a big surprise.
Only if we get rid of the RINOS.
LOL, I don’t think so, what is the old saying about doing the same thing over and over again hoping for different results.
As will the Rockefeller Republicans.
I was fed up reading this crap yesterday. Sarah Palin is the person who put the life back into a failing campaign. It was her selection that caused me to finally decide to cast a vote for president. I made that decision the moment she concluded her acceptance speech.
What caused McCain’s failure? IMO it was his poor response to the bailout issue, and the campaign never, ever, giving voters a policy to vote FOR. One other issue may also be involved; the Hispanic vote going so strongly for Obama. His defeat has nothing to do with Sarah Palin. NOTHING!
I think we ALL need to re-read Barry Goldwater’s “Conscience of a Conservative”. Once you do, you can recognize the principles—Reagan had them, Mike Pence, Duncan Hunter II, Bobby Jindal, Michael Steele, JC Watts (and more) have them and can articulate them. Where Sarah Palin is concerned, is that she may not articulate those beliefs as eloquently as some of us might like, but she LIVES those principles and can talk about them them with conviction and sincerity—as did Ronald Reagan. She inspires by action, where the RINOs/intelligentsia try to inspire by words. Words without conviction are just words. To make our party the refuge for Americans who believe in God, country, free markets, and a limited government who remembers that it is the servant of the people—and not their masters—we need that conviction and sincerity.
Real Republicans walk the walk AND talk the talk. Sarah Palin is a real Republican. Game. Set. Match.

All of those personal one on one interviews have provided enough rebuttal.
What are the vast majority of FReepers saying, re: Sarah Palin and their feelings towards her, come 2012?
Get back to me, afterwards.
If that is your proof you have a problem.
Yes, all their posts put mccain over the top.
Can't read for comprehension, huh? Wotta shocka.
Sorry, but I'm neither fluent in Leftist or Loser.
Tell you what, though: pretend you're McCain. Beg me in Spanish.
Terminal case. Brain already appears to have been completely eaten through. ;)
I'm not surprised. I remember the day McCain announced Palin as his running-mate, some of the FR Romneybots wasted no time at all in getting on here and trashing her.
No undecided broke for Obama over Palin. That’s a joke.
Funny you should make that statement. I kept reading about people who’d said that disappointed Dems were voting for McCain “for the first time” and that desappointed Reps. were going to “hold their noses” and vote for McCain.
The “disappointeds” to whom I spoke all said they were staying home.
Ah. Is THAT what I've been attempting to scrape from the bottom of my shoe this morning, then...? ;)
Shame on FoxNews for running the story when they wouldn’t run negative stories about President-Elect Ding Dong.
Patent BULL$HIT from incompetent losers!!!
Oh, drat. Then I suppose you'll just have to attend the McCain Inaugural Ball this coming January without me, is all.
It’s time to find someone in the RNC with balls.
Thanks, Kent, for a much needed dose of sane reality.
I wouldn't say the McCain staff is throwing her under the bus. It appears more to me that she laid in the middle of the road challenging the bus to run over her and the bus driver did nothing to avoid it.
Thanks, TADSLOS! Good to see you again! ;)
Scheunemann - GOOD GUY
Nicolle Wallace - NO GOOD (was she a Romney staffer?)
Yes, do tell.
Who - good, conservative, traditional values people? ubetcha
What - hmmm... the forces of GOOD in the world? ubetcha
Why - because she's a righteous person? ubetcha
The battle for the soul of the Republican party began yesterday, and the RINOS took the first shot.
If there are McCain Staffers bad mouthing Sarah Palin, those same staffers need to take another look at the attendance at Palin rallies vs. McCain rallies.
Palin probably had 4 or 5 times the number of people at her rallies vs John McCain.
I went to John McCain’s rally at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium on Monday before the election and there was less than 4,000 people at his rally.
This was not a good indicator of how John was going to fare on Tuesday in Florida. There are over 3 million people in the greater Tampa Bay area and John McCain could only draw 4,000 people to attend his final rally in Florida.
Meanwhile, I recall reading that Sarah Palin in the last days drew something like 20,000 folks to the Jefferson City Missouri rally and that city has a population of something like 60,000.
The numbers speak louder than any words from the McCain campaign, MSM who is afraid of Palin, or any other talking head.
Sarah has a date with 2012.
If there are any McCain staffers reading, I have a few questions. 1- Did you really think you could win without a big bump from the VP. 2- Did you really think McCain’s policy of campaign disengagement was a successful one, given that he had so much stacked against him. 3- Is the burn the ships mentality a good one to have given that you might be looked at for additional campaign work down the road. 4- Will the democrats invite you to the good inaugural parties now that you trashed their enemy?
According to this, it’s some of the Romney staff, including Kevin Madden. If that’s the case, it’s very unfortunate as I thought Kevin was a pretty good spokesman when I saw him on FNC.
I read a post yesterday and there was a woman, don’t recall her name (I want to say it was Naomi or something like that), that they thought may be involved.
I’m totally disgusted by this whole thing (I’ve been hearing it all morning on FNC). I got so angry I went to the johnmccain.com site and sent this mail(probably should have spent time wordsmithing it - but, I think they’ll get the message of what I’m thinking and feeling right now):
Dear Senator McCain,
Your speech and the delivery of it was very classy. What has transpired since then with your staff is one of the unclassiest and most despicable things I’ve ever witnessed. Quite frankly, the only reason I donated to your campaign is because of Gov Palin. This is a time when Republicans and Conservatives should be coming together for the good of our country and our party. Instead the thugs inside of your campaign are doing whatever they can to disparage and slime a competent, wonderful leader, Gov Palin.
Country First?? That’s not what your campaign staff is showing now - - they’re showing ‘me first’ and trying to cover their bums.
Sarah and her family worked tirelessly for you and the campaign; and, instead of receiving praise and thanks, they’re receiving these disgusting comments and ‘leaks’ to reporters. Perhaps the idiots that ran your campaign should look to themselves and the poor handling they did of same, instead of blaming Gov Palin.
You asked us to ‘Stand Up and Fight With You’. I’m asking you to Stand Up and Fight With Us and For Sarah, and against these slime balls. Order them to stop and then fire them. In addition, you should come out in support of Sarah.
My friends and I have had it!!! No wonder Republicans lose, they eat their own - unlike the Democrats who stand up for the likes of thieves like Wm Jefferson.
I’ve been a Republican for a long time, however, if this keeps up, I may switch to an Independent. As you can tell, I’m extremely angry about the treatment of Gov Palin, and, I can assure you, I’m not the only one.
Enough is Enough!!!
Thanks! I couldn’t remember her name in my post 94 - I remembered it began w an ‘N’ and all I could think of is Naomi - it’s Nicolle, as you mentioned.
I’m no fan of Bill Kristol but he said on Fox and Friends today that these people are paranoid and delusional and he believes it ran right up to top with Schmidt and Wallace.
Ruh Roh. Megan Kelly is going to talk about this at 9am. This is not going to be pretty.
