    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on September 6th, 2008 (All posts by )

    The astounding (even to me, after all these years!) smugness and mean-spiritedness of so many in the media engendered not just interest in but sympathy for Palin. It allowed Palin to speak not just to conservatives but to the many Americans who are repulsed by the media’s prurient interest in and adolescent snickering about her family. It allowed the McCain-Palin ticket to become the populist standard-bearer against an Obama-Media ticket that has disdain for Middle America.

    Bill Kristol. RTWT — a sneering but still accurate assessment.

    I love that line: McCain/Palin v. Obama/Media. We know who Obama’s real “running mate” is! It’s his horde of little pals who are working away like Santa’s elves to bring to an America that is hungry for change the gift of hope we can believe in.

    Feh. (Spits on ground.)

      Two weeks. That was the response given by a McCain campaign spokesman to a question about how long it will be before the media will be allowed to speak with Palin about her policy experience, positions, etc. Two weeks before we are allowed to better understand the beliefs of a candidate for the Vice President of the United States. What is she hiding that it will take (at least) two weeks to either better conceal or overcome?

      Probably nothing. You can’t hide anything in the internet age. What you’re seeing is the media being in a snit because McCain/Palin isn’t scheduling their activities around the media. The media wants to sell stories about Palin and they have a campaign to plan.
