Palin, Alone Aboard the Bus
Quote:
I’m sympathetic to Eskew and Wallace, and not just because they’re decent people. They’ve held their tongue from leaking what a couple of McCain higher-ups have told me—namely, that Palin simply knew nothing about national and international issues. Which meant, as one such adviser said to me: “Letting Sarah be Sarah may not be such a good thing.” It’s a grim binary choice, but apparently it came down to whether to make Palin look like a scripted robot or an unscripted ignoramus.

So Colin Powell was right.


"Powell said McCain's choice of Palin raised questions about judgment. "She's a very distinguished woman, and she's to be admired. But at the same time, now that we have had a chance to watch her for some seven weeks, I don't believe she's ready to be president of the United States, which is the job of the vice president," he said. "And so that raised some question in my mind as to the judgment that Sen. McCain made."

I saw the Governor on TV this morning, delivering a speech on energy in Ohio, and I have to say, there was no winking, no cutesy colloquialisms, no nasty attacks. Her delivery was serious and, I have to say, she sounded quite credible.
I still don't agree with her politics, but, if this Sarah Palin had been on the trail, I think things would be looking very different about now.

This has to have been the most mis-managed campaign in history.

It’s about time for the vaudeville stick to pull McCain and Palin off stage lest we Republicans start being labeled as complete losers.

I was thinking that the other day, it is like a James Cagney movie or Gypsy Rose Lee. They come so far and then fall back to where they started!
