McCain campaign sets shameful record

[I]t looks like GOP Gov. Sarah Palin actually did it — ran out the clock to earn her spot as the first major party candidate to entirely sidestep a formal news conference and an appearance on the Sunday news shows, a traditional test for those hoping to ascend to the nation’s highest offices.

One can’t fault the McCain campaign too hard for the lack of access. After all, each time Palin has talked with anyone other than an overt supporter, she’s exposed herself further as a liar and an idiot.

She can’t help it, even during interviews with unabashed supporters like Greta “Let’s Get Roaringly Drunk and Interview Todd Palin” van Susteren. Just yesterday Palin told the famous journal-tologist how important it is during the first hundred days of McCain’s presidency to shore up plans for winning the war in Iran.

Oops. At that point van Susteren did the only thing she could have done: ignored the comment and silently entreated Xenu to lower a veil of nonrecognition over the minds of the listeners.

The “war with Iran” comment is funny, of course, but it’s also more than a little disturbing. For something more along the lines of pure humor, check out Palin getting pranked into believing that she’s talking with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

So yeah, it’s hard to blame the powers that be in the McCain campaign for keeping Palin away from press conferences and Sunday morning teevee. That’s just a matter of survival.

What we can, indeed must, blame the campaign for is selecting Palin in the first place. If Obama wins the election — unlikely, IMO, given the depth and breadth of America’s racism and the sheer power of the Republican election fraud machine — the idiots who gave the final thumbs up to Palin’s selection get the lion’s share of the responsibility.
