This is just rich. McCain’s campaign has stated that Palin will not be speaking to members of the media until they start showing her the deference and respect she deserves. Yes, deference.
Rick Davis, campaign manager for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., just told Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace that McCain running mate Gov. Sarah Palin won’t subject herself to any tough questions from reporters “until the point in time when she’ll be treated with respect and deference.”
Davis assailed the way the media had discussed Palin and her family in the last week and said the campaign would wait until a less hostile media environment.
So when will she subject herself to questions?
“When we think it’s time and when she feels comfortable doing it,” Davis said, praising a Fox News Channel profile of Palin that ran last night.
Can you imagine the reaction if Hillary Clinton had said she would not speak to the media until they quit disrespecting her and refusing to show her the deference she deserves?
Something tells me they would not be running around declaring her a “rockstar“. What do you think?
