Josh Marshall whined There's a lot of complaining
By media outlets pledged to support Obama, and hoping to trip her up to reverse McCain Moves Ahead, 48% to 45%that the McCain campaign won't allow anyone to interview Sarah Palin.
They know she can deliver a speech that hits it out of the ball pake. They want to see if she needs any help in other areas before just throwing her into the lions den.And for the major news outlets that would be in line for such an interview there's a logic to keeping up the drumbeat. But McCain campaign manager Rick Davis is right: It's their campaign to run. They can do it how they want. Everyone else should just shut up, stop complaining and call the reality for what it is.
Oba,a waited until after his Convention before going on the O'reilly Factor. Give the poor girl a few days.Davis says Palin won't give any interviews until she feels "comfortable" giving one. And this morning he added that she wouldn't give any "until the point in time when she'll be treated with respect and deference."
I suspect that will come after Hell freezes over AND pigs learn to fly.Sarah Palin could be the President of the United States in four and a half months. We tend to think of this as an abstraction; but it's true.
That is not as frightening as Obama becoming President, and that would not require the death of a President.And yet today she's so unprepared and knows so little about the challenges and tasks facing the country that she can't even give a softball interview.
If she could be sure that the only questions she would face would be the challenges and tasks facing the country, and not just the latest lies about her, she might be more willing to be interviewed.That's really all we need to know. Yes, she's off being prepped at some undisclosed location. And I've little doubt that by the time her debate rolls around she'll be sufficiently pumped full of slogans and bromides to make a show of it. But now, this moment, is the one that tells us all we need to know.
And she will wipe Biden off the map.
