So, I really wasn’t planning on writing about Sarah Palin again, but, after seeing some of the news coverage of the last 24 hours, I have to.
I pointed out yesterday what a hypocritical jacka$$ former top McCain aide Steve Schmidt is. I mean, it takes a special kind of stupid to say that someone is not qualified to be president when you are the one who picked her to be vice-president.
Now, another former McCain aide is at it, too. Nicolle Wallace (who, with Steve Schmidt, is believed to be one of the main sources for all of the Palin badmouthing going on at the end of the election season and shortly thereafter) recently made a public statement that Palin’s new book is “based on fabrications.”
And if anybody knows fabrications, it’s Nicolle.
But the real kicker of this whole story is where Nicolle decided to go to talk about how awful Sarah Palin is.
Think about it, what is the worst place a Republican political operative could go to badmouth other Republicans?
Yep, you guessed it. Nicolle gave her statements to MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
Okay, so maybe Keith Olberman would be worse, but Maddow is a close second.
For that alone, little Nicolle should be blackballed from ever working in Republican politics again.
It’s kind of like the Dixie Chicks. You just don’t badmouth your own people to outsiders and expect to get away with it.
And, in case you haven’t already read 50 different opinions on it, for the record, Newsweek was TOTALLY out of line in printing the Runner’s World photo of Sarah Palin on its cover. Completely disrespectful and over the line. And please do not tell me they would ever do that to a Democrat, particularly a male Democrat.
Can’t you see it… Barack Obama shirtless with his glistening abs (jeez, I’m sounding like Kathie Obradovich) surrounded by a headline boldly stating:
“How do you solve a problem like Barack? He’s bad news for Democrats – and for everyone else, too.”
How do you think that would go over?
