Today on Fox News Sunday, “master strategist” Karl Rove joined the finger-pointing, blaming the McCain staff for being “undisciplined” and expressing insufficient “loyalty” for McCain:
Gee, Karl, that's your old crowd, ain't it? I guess they lost direction without your masterful, manly hand on the stick like it was on Bush's stick.
Later in the show, right-wing columnist Bill Kristol blamed McCain staffers for “ill-serving” Palin by mishandling the story about spending $150,000 on new designer clothes for her. “The staff has not served her well by hiding her and not having confidence,” he said. Watch both clips here:
Hint: Prior to watching this crap if you must, I suggest you proceed to a safe area and puke in a controlled situation so as not to fuse your keyboard into a toxic, un-recyclable lump.
It makes sense that Kristol is trying to direct blame onto staffers and away from Palin: after all, McCain insiders have credited Kristol with convincing them to go with Palin to begin with. The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer said Kristol was “the most ardent promoter” of Palin, repeatedly talking up her electoral prowess on Fox News and urging McCain to choose her for vice president.
Some recent polls have shown her selection to be a bigger drag on McCain’s campaign than Bush.
Wait a minute here - Palin. Drag. Hmmmmm...
Someone grab her crotch and see if she's still pre-op. Come to think of it, before you wash your hands, check Turdblossom and Krystall for the same thing.
