McCain’s FU to Palin?

anyone else watch mccain on SNL and wonder why the heck is he allowing fey rip apart palin?

the gawker suggests that this was mccain’s attempt to get back at palin for her absolutely pathetic performance. as don allen talked about several weeks ago, palin has essentially gone rogue, she’s been critical of the way mccain has handled the campaign and critical of the way she was shielded from the media by mccain’s staff. she’s basically been running for 2012 at mccain’s expense.

this definitely does come across as a hostile shot from mccain.

so what does that say about him? not only did was VP pick an abysmal failure, but he has also been utterly incapable of asserting control of his own campaign.

this is what happens when you give someone the second most important job in the country after meeting her only once.

i had to go through more interviews and more hoops than palin, when i applied for a job at the local mall.

McCain’s Hail Mary

so back when obama was at hyde park, he attended a dinner event with one of the most renowned and famous professors of the israeli-palestinian issue: rashid khalidi (now with columbia university).

mccain wants the video of the party to be released:

On Wednesday, McCain said 1960s radical Bill Ayers had attended the same party in 2003. McCain and Palin have criticized Obama for his ties to Ayers and questioned what the videotape of the party might show.

“Among other things, Israel was described there as the perpetrator of terrorism rather than the victim,” Palin said at a rally in Ohio. “What we don’t know is how Barack Obama responded to these slurs on a country that he professes to support.”

mccain is trying to paint khalidi as a radical, even though there is scant evidence of khalidi’s ties to the PLO and even though the PLO was heavily propped up by western donors as the moderate face of the palestinians.

more amusingly, mccain himself funded khalidi’s group:

“During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McCain distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.”

Palin refuses to call abortion bombers “terrorists”

as uncle johnny watches on….

edited to add the rest of what she said:

i dont know if you use the word terrorist. It’s unacceptable, and it would not be condoned, of course, on our watch. But if what you’re asking is if I regret referring to Bill Ayers as an unrepenting domestic terrorist, I don’t regret characterizing him as that.

how bout this question for sarah:

is timothy mcveigh a terrorist?

“i dont know if i would call him a terrorist. It’s unacceptable, and it would not be condoned, of course, on our watch. But if what you’re asking is if I regret referring to Bill Ayers as an unrepenting domestic terrorist, I don’t regret characterizing him as that.”

or how bout if obama was asked:

do you believe that bill ayers is a terrorist and his plot to blow up government buildings constitutes terrorism?

“i dont know if i would call him a terrorist. It’s unacceptable, and it would not be condoned, of course, on our watch.”

how would that fly?
