Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall
It’s been amusing to read about Palin and McCain taking potshots at each other through their respective supporters within the campaign:
Four Republicans close to Palin said she has decided increasingly to disregard the advice of the former Bush aides tasked to handle her, creating occasionally tense situations as she travels the country with them. Those Palin supporters, inside the campaign and out, said Palin blames her handlers for a botched rollout and a tarnished public image — even as others in McCain’s camp blame the pick of the relatively inexperienced Alaska governor, and her public performance, for McCain’s decline.
“She’s lost confidence in most of the people on the plane,” said a senior Republican who speaks to Palin, referring to her campaign jet. He said Palin had begun to “go rogue” in some of her public pronouncements and decisions.
“I think she’d like to go more rogue,” he said.
There is, as they say, plenty of blame to go around. Frankly, no one inside the McCain campaign, regardless of where their sympathies lie, has any standing to criticize anyone.
Having said that, this line is to guffaw at:
“The campaign as a whole bought completely into what the Washington media said — that she’s completely inexperienced,” said a close Palin ally outside the campaign who speaks regularly to the candidate.
Surely being thought inexperienced is not as bad as being thought stupid. But what else can one conclude when the supposed foremost expert on energy issues in the country cannot name even one man-made cause of global warming and furthermore tells reporters that it doesn’t matter what the causes are because we can solve problems without knowing the causes?Explore posts in the same categories: Politics
