Better than a circular firing squad!
It's a circular knife fight! After two months of pent up rage, McCain staffers stab Palin in the back. Kevin Drum has a great roundup. Highlight:
There was great concern in the McCain campaign that Sarah Palin lacked the degree of knowledgeability necessary to be a running mate, a vice president, and a heartbeat away from the presidency. We're told by folks that she didn't know what countries were in NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, that being Canada, the US, and Mexico. We're told that she didn't understand that Africa was a continent rather than a country just in itself. A whole host of questions that caused serious problems about her knowledgeability. She got very angry at staff, thought that she was mishandled, was particularly angry about the way the Katie Couric interview went. She didn't accept preparation for that interview when the aides say that that was part of the problem. And that there were times where she was hard to control emotionally. There's talk of temper tantrums at bad news clippings.
Oh My Fucking God, if that he's true she's ten times dumber than even I thought. Of course, these are bitter McCain staffers dishing to FOX, so they are hardly the most reliable sources. Here's the video:
This is a button that allows you to give me money for no reason whatsoever. Why you would want to do this I have no idea. You will get absolutely nothing in return. But I certainly won't object if you do. Maybe if you bribe me enough you can sway my opinion or something. It works on Congress.
