Palin is desperate. McCain is desparate.
From the Washington Post:
Dana Milbank – Unleashed, Palin Makes a Pit Bull Look Tame
“Worse, Palin’s routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric’s questions for her ‘less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media.’ At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, ‘Sit down, boy.'”
“The angry GOP vice presidential nominee even found a way to blame the market decline on the yet-to-be-enacted tax policies of the yet-to-be-elected Obama.
“‘If you turn on the news tonight when you get home, you’re gonna see that, yah, this is another woeful day in the market, and the other side just doesn’t understand — no!’ she said at an afternoon fundraiser at the home of mutual fund giant Jack Donahue. ‘Especially in a time like this, you don’t propose to increase taxes. The phoniest claim in a campaign that’s full of them is that Barack Obama is going to cut your taxes.'”
Palin is the very epitome of class, grace, intelligence and represents a leap forward if you think we need to stay the course charted by Cheney/Bush and/or think we need more dumb people in the White House.
