Why is McCain camp going after Palin?

  • Follow Letters

I think it is shameful what the Republican Party is trying to do to Sarah Palin after the election by making her look like either a manipulative, vindictive diva or a complete idiot or both.

I first heard this on Fox News Thursday morning, then later on several other media, including Austin Rhodes. The fact that these are "unidentified" sources makes it worse. If you are going to engage in a personal attack, at least have the guts to do so publicly so the "charges" can be refuted.

And the McCain campaign can't figure out why they lost. Because they are stupid!

Robert Wahlmeier, Augusta

The woman didn't know that

The woman didn't know that AFRICA was a CONTINENT for GOD'S sake! The McCain camp is only proving what those who saw through her from the beginning said. She IS a manipulative conniving person. Oh wait, she's a Republican.

"The woman didn't know that

"The woman didn't know that AFRICA was a CONTINENT for GOD'S sake!" I bet she knew how many states are in the US. She may have even known when TV was invented. She might even know that "jobs" isn't a 3 letter word. But we'll only look at the Republican gaffs....not the one's our beloved Democrats make.

Well said Sister...To point

Well said Sister...To point out the mistakes of Palin is obviously cool and politically correct but to point out the numerous "mistakes" made by Obama is hate biased rhetoric...But never fear the Obama love affair will lessen when the media figures out he is not going to have a free a hand even with Congress in his pocket...There has always been more interest in reporting dirty little secrets than in real news...

You well see more attacks on

You well see more attacks on Palin periodically to keep up the image she is a dolt,(sort of like they tried to do with the amiable dunce Ronald Reagan), this will keep her from being a political force in 2012. Eventually these lies will become the "truth " about Palin making her damaged goods!

It should be clear by now

It should be clear by now that I was not an Obama supporter. But how did he insult Nancy Regan? It was a joke people. Mrs Regan did consult astrologers. Both parties need to lighten up a bit.

I think McCain should have

I think McCain should have made some some kind of public statement chastising the anonymous sources of the criticism. They were probably made by male chauvinist pigs who are afraid a woman might upset their apple cart. Or perhaps by a jealous woman.

BTW, I don't dislike Hillary,

BTW, I don't dislike Hillary, Pelosi, Boxer, & McKinney for being women in politics, I dislike them for the same reason I dislike Harry Reid, Bill Clinton, and Barak Obama, and Ted Kennedy. I dislike them for their liberal ideas on how to run this country and what laws should be passed. Pelosi and Reid are dictators in the House & Senate, controlling what bills will be voted on and what ones will not. Now we will have a willing accomplice in the executive office who will probably get the chance to appoint dictators to the Supreme Court. Then all three branches will have dictators in them and "checks & balances" will go out the window.

Palin is what she is, no

Palin is what she is, no different now than she was before she was selected. If she is a bad choice now, she was a bad choice period. McCains handlers don't want to admit error and need a scapegoat for the dismal way they performed.

Carcraft, I would bet it all

Carcraft, I would bet it all that you are not even in the same area code of IQ as O. Calling a man with his educational pedigree a facetious "mental giant" is absolute proof of how ignorant you must be. However, I won't even begin to explain concepts that you probably wouldn't get in the first place like irony, analogy or metaphor...it would be a waste of breath on you....and yes this is a personal attack on your intelligence for saying something so stupid...

According to the writer who

According to the writer who broke the story of Palin and "continent", he nows says that was not exactly what she said. Palin was being briefed on foreign issues and she repeated what her briefer told her. She should have been more careful but have you read all the flub-up Joe Biden has made? He makes Plain look like a genius.

The lies and "twisted truths"

The lies and "twisted truths" made public about Palin were an attempt to make a few McCain staffers appear more attractive to the muck raking left....the ones doing the hiring now that the campaign is over. Everyone of the staffers spreading these lies should be outed and ostracized by all political parties (except Dem).

The lefts attempt to make Palin look less then she is will not drag her down to your level. It only emphasizes her high standards and your desperation.

Value of Mc's 7 homes:

Value of Mc's 7 homes: millions. Value of Palin's 2 month wardrobe: 150K. Value of Palin's gifts for her husband and family: 40K. Value of Repub infighting amid an embarassing loss and a banishment of 40 years in the political wilderness: PRICELESS !!

You Palin haters are pathetic. You have someone to gloat over and yet you take time to beat up a person you know nothing about. Do you own a mirror? Look how ugly you are.

You have to remember first

You have to remember first and formost, they are politicians and are all crooks, Rep. and Democrats. Just so happened this year the sheep were lead to slaughter by the Democrats. Rep. had no smooth talking devil in their camp. And four years from now will we be no better off.

Gunyby, a couple of staffers

Gunyby, a couple of staffers are hardly representative of the party. The FOX report on the gossip seems to have legitimized the baseless rumors for some. The gloating and baiting is the right of the victors, though.
