McCain adviser: Palinís book is fiction (Romneybot Nicolle Wallace attacks Sarah Palin again)
MSNBC ^ | 2009-11-18

Posted on 11/17/2009 9:24:12 PM PST by rabscuttle385

Depictions ‘took place entirely in her imagination,’ says Wallace.

NBC NEWS and NEWS SERVICES

NEW YORK - Former McCain campaign senior adviser Nicolle Wallace says Sarah Palin's book "Going Rogue" is "based on fabrications," and that the basis for Palin’s depictions of her and former McCain campaign director Steve Schmidt as villains "took place entirely in her imagination."

In a statement to The Rachel Maddow Show, the former McCain spokesperson repeatedly used the word "fiction" to describe Palin's narrative and echoed criticisms by other former McCain staffers.

"She [Palin] probably has a legitimate complaint that things could have been better conceived and executed. A book about that would have been painful but not entirely unfair," Wallace told an msnbc producer in an off-camera, on-the-record interview.

Wallace took particular issue with Palin's version of her interview with Katie Couric interview, which did not cast the former vice presidential candidate in a favorable light.

Love it...you know it’s true when they come out firing... Most of these McCain clowns are lying assholes - after all they are working for politicians (McCain is one of the utmost long time serving asshole politicians). You can take their “lies” to the bank. Only those that don’t care about the results will state the truth - hello Sarah,,,

So funny how the staffers cowardly leaked like crazy when they lost...trashing, raping, and punching SP into a bloody mess...left her lying naked in the town square for everyone to blame.

Now when SP gets up and names them....they go squealing to MSNBC and the Huff Post to save them.

EXACTLY..if she were really lying they wouldn’t even bother with her. They come out firing because people are finding out what pricks they really are(Heck we all suspected it) and they are terrified no one will ever hire them again. Not even Romney will hire those clowns

Rabs,Sarah, in the Oprah interview, alluded to the fact that there are folks in these campaigns to whom politics is a BUSINESS, not something one does out of PRINCIPLE.

Nicolle told Sarah that the Perky One was a fan.

That’s all we need to know about whom to believe.

The way these McCain staffers all ran such an incompetent campaign and the way they all trashed Sarah Palin immediately after the election makes me wonder if they are leftist operatives on a mission to sabotage conservatives. They are all very close friends with Maddow and all the other leftists who constantly attacked McCain during the campaign. They all seemed very happy that the Republicans were soundly defeated in 2008.

I wanted to let you know, Huck was at the Villages yesterday, news report said about 200 people were there. He has to be crying, Sarah is going to turn them out! I also got an email from Duval County - Jax email, they are doing some kind of thing to get people out to greet Sarah at her book signing there on 11/24, she goes from there to the Villages.
I am about 1 1/2 hours from both places, but I would have to take off work, the Villages starts passing out wrist bands at 7 am, and I can tell you I would have to probably be there in the middle of the night to get one, so I am going to skip it. Unless I change my mind.
Also Nicole whining that Sarah never liked her made me smile. Sarah seems to be a great judge of character, doesn’t she?

I hope that you are able to attend her book signing. If she were coming to Los Angeles I would be there in a heartbeat. Would be such a huge honor to finally meet her. Keep me posted, if you are able to go, expect HUGE crowds like you’ve never seen before.
As far as Nicolle Wallace is concerned, the fact that Sarah never liked her shows me Sarah has a good judge of character. I knew from the beginning, the second those BS rumors about Sarah not knowing Africa was a Continent or whatever that stupid story was, I knew it was coming from Nicolle Wallace and her fat ass partner in crime Steve Schmidt. They started covering their asses right from the start
Awwwwwwwwwwwww poor Huckabee..you mean no one really cares about his oh-so interesting book. I’m shocked! You mean the AP didn’t send 11 reporters to fact check it

Jeez, there must be a liberal standing order to attack Sarah on Amazon.com It's disgusting. Most have not even read the book they are just taking gratuitous slaps at her. All this love and mercy (sarcasm)from the “tolerant” crowd is mind numbing.

Sarah used just a few pages to “set the record straight.”
The more FR blows this up into a big attack on many people, the more they make her look like a paranoid whiner. Just my opinion.

Good idea, let her walk the other side of the street for a while. These “staffers” are nothing more than political whores, selling their services to whichever candidate happens to be on top. The mistake is in treating them as if their opinions matter after a campaign is over. They don’t, and even Fox looks ridiculous to have “former McCain staffer” on their air as a supposed expert. It’s like having the PA announcer from the Superbowl on ESPN to discuss game strategy. Wallace is a PR flack, that’s all.

I’ve never seen anything quite like this, her campaign staff was trying to do her in while they were still working for her. We could all see it, couldn’t quite believe it, but we could see it happening. Then in the aftermath of the campaign we could see the anonymous “McCain staffers” still trying to do her in, and again couldn’t quite believe it.

If I hadn’t seen it myself, I wouldn’t believe it. But I did see it. This is very strange, to see a candidate done in by their own people.

Any candidate who hires these people has just outed himself as complicit in their dirty work.
