I know I’ve been critical of Palin’s unreadiness, pretty often actually. But I’ve tried to always frame it in the context of it being more about McCain’s judgement than Palin’s failure. I find it especially despicable that the McCain staff are piling on her this way. In the end, it makes McCain look all the more reckless. Palin was way out of her league this whole election and McCain knew it. But instead of being a responsible, measured leader, he just bullshitted the American people all the way to November 4th.
If I were McCain, I’d try to reign in some of this nastiness from his staff aimed at Palin. It’s only making him look all the more dishonorable, as if that were possible.
