More low-class McCain campaign trashing of Sarah Palin
...still looking for someone to blame
As if they haven't done it enough already, here we are, more than six months after the election, and former McCain campaign staffers are STILL trashing Sarah Palin.
The most recent broadside comes in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, previewed here in the NY Daily News:
In an expansive story in the August edition of Vanity Fair, a slew of senior members of McCain's campaign team told reporter Todd S. Purdum that they suffer a kind of survivor's guilt following the 2008 presidential election.
"They can't quite believe that for two frantic months last fall, caught in a Bermuda Triangle of a campaign, they worked their tails off to try to elect as vice president of the United States someone who, by mid-October, they believed for certain was nowhere near ready for the job, and might never be," Vanity Fair reports.
During the campaign, there were reports of anonymous McCain aides describing Palin, the governor of Alaska, as a "diva" and a "whack job." ...
For her part, Palin didn't comment for the story, which is the smart move. All she does is provide that much more attention for these bozos.
Anyone with any kind of political common sense whatsoever can see what's going on here. You've got a woman who's one of the most popular Republican figures in the country...the biggest fundraising draw...and a name that pops up near the top of any poll of Republicans' preferences for a 2012 nominee. All of which means it's time for the boys who support someone to take another low class swipe at her.
The fact that it diverts people's attention from the awful campaign they ran is a bonus I suppose.
