McCain’s inner circle is trying to blame everything on Sarah Palin, much to the rage of every right wing blogger on the planet with one of them calling for the political shunning of the McCain people behind it all.
Yes, I’m aware that Obama said something about being everyone’s president and some other conciliatory things. Good for him. I’m not the president. I don’t have to pretend to like people who have made it their mission to destroy everything I hold dear.
The meltdown on the right continues and some of those on the right seem quite intent on drowning Palin in the runoff.
They’ve quit pulling their punches since McCain conceded and there seems to be no end to the pile on.
First we heard that the guy who recommended Palin refused to let her speak after McCain.
Then we heard she actually spent more than the reported 150K on clothes by having campaign workers use their own cards to buy her and her family clothing but they kept it quiet so as to not “offend” McCain.
They’ve also stated that McCain rarely spoke to her during the campaign, that his staff really disliked her and hers wasn’t too fond of her either.
Then came the news that she once let some aides into her hotel room wearing nothing but a towel which was followed quickly by the news she didn’t know Africa was a continent and couldn’t name which countries make up NAFTA.
It’s now being reported that she was stubborn, willful bitch who threw tantrums and refused to take the advice of the aides McCain saddled her with.
Here’s a video from Fox News where it’s pretty much implied that it was her interview with Katie Couric, which she allegedly refused to prepare for, that cost McCain the election:
Of course, what is is being left unsaid is that McCain chose her. It was his decision. So what if Palin turned out to be a nightmare. She didn’t insert herself into the McCain campaign.
She was invited to join it by McCain himself who said, when asked about Palin, that his choice of her was a “cold political calculation” that he was quite pleased with.
So another Halloween has come and gone. As usual, the daughter ended up with a few pro-Christian tracts mixed in with her loot. I was not amused. However, I think our neighbours were far more restrained than a woman up in Detroit. Her oh so very non-Halloween behaviour? She refused to give candy to kids [...]
I don’t know who I love more, Jon Stewart or Sam Bee for this segment on McCain’s use of scare quotes for practically everything that comes out of Obama’s mouth, up to and including the validity of women’s health when it comes to abortion:
Some Republican strategist has decided to share with us seven reasons McCain and Palin will be coming out the winners come November 4th. Reason number four is none other than women ‘who feel Senator Clinton was treated unfairly’ by the party, the media and Obama. We’re allegedly going to remember this and vote against Obama. [...]
Have you ever wondered what crawled up McCain’s ass and led him to choose Sarah Palin? Well, wonder no more. Here’s the man himself on why he chose a woman who has claimed that women who do not support her are going to hell to be one half of he Republican ticket: If you’re a [...]
This may sound bad, but I skipped the debate between Obama and McCain Wednesday. I tried to watch it, but McCain annoys the crap out of me and nothing short of a lobotomy could possibly get me to vote for him. So, what did I miss? I missed getting to see McCain do this (via [...]
John McCain has taken to running a nasty campaign by releasing a series of smear ads aimed at Obama. Yesterday at the national service forum McCain was asked why his campaign has gotten so nasty. His response? Obama made him do it. Questioned about the tone of the campaign, Sen. McCain insisted he was running [...]
John McCain recently tried to co-opt Obama’s message of change stating more or less that he was going to change how Washington did business. Obama fired back stating: “John McCain says he’s about change too, and so I guess his whole angle is, ‘Watch out George Bush — except for economic policy, health care policy, [...]
