I thought I’d said everything I had to say about the pathetic McCain Campaign in 08
But….(There’s always a but isn’t there?)
But, Sarah is back and everything ugly from the end of that campaign is back with her.
I haven’t gotten my hands on her book yet, so all I can do is comment second hand on what is purported to be in it and from what I’ve heard, she’s been nothing but gracious toward John McCain the man and the candidate despite the fact that he refused to stand up for her and rebuke his staffers for leaking unflattering reports about her under the cover of anonymity.
Which, in the end, is what this is all about. After all the speculation about who was anonymously leaking to the press about what a Diva Sarah Palin is, and how she liked expensive cloths and all the other viscous innuendo.
After all the discussion and argument back and forth about whether McCain was behind it all. Whether he supported the attackers, whether he agreed with the leaks…or the leakers..after all our calls to show some loyalty to the person he launched into the national spotlight in a desperate bid to save a pathetic and sinking campaign…..after all our begging that he come to the defense of a lady that is still being a loyal soldier to him to this very day
WELL NOW WE KNOW!!!
All these attacks from the shadows went on over a period of weeks and to this day he’s never called for these back biting gutter snipes to come to heel. He’s always chosen to stay above it all…and play like he was happy with her contribution all the while letting his lackeys tear at Palin hammer and tong.
Yet, here we are. One single day after she finally get’s a chance to tell her side of the sordid story…Here’s the great war hero, this great icon of conscience and virtue jumping to the defense of Schmidt and Wallace.
McCain goes rogue
McCain on Wednesday strongly defended the top advisers from his 2008 presidential campaign in the face of sharp criticism from his vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin.
McCain, in a telephone interview with Reuters, singled out campaign manager Steve Schmidt and senior adviser Nicolle Wallace for praise after Palin blasted the pair in her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.”
“There’s been a lot of dust flying around in the last few days and I just wanted to mention that I have the highest regard for Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace and the rest of the team … and I appreciated all the hard work and everything they did to help the campaign,” he said.
“I think it’s just time to move on,” he said.
It’s time to move on John?
Well…I guess it is…now that we know what a small and pathetic little man you really are!
