"What's really sobering

is that the McCain campaign continues to block Palin from answering questions even though it's now resulting in reams and reams of bad press for the McCain-Palin ticket. That suggests McCain advisers know that letting her answer even the most elementary questions in an uncontrolled environment is so dangerous that it's worth weathering the current media drubbing they're taking in order to prevent it from happening at all costs."

This is from Barry Eisler's blog:

Keep in mind, Barry's a Republican supporting Obama because he thinks his own party needs a good decade in the wilderness in order to save itself.

In other words, he's not a wingnut.

After the whipping she rightfully took for not knowing what the 'Bush doctrine' is, well, I guess I'd muzzle her too if I was McCain.

McCain's people have consistently said that it's only the media that's unhappy she won't talk and that her supporters are happy with what they've heard at her campaign stops.

So, screw the rest of us? Is that what they're saying? Nice.

The supporters at her campaign stops are already in the bag for their votes. Undecided voters are waiting to hear from her. The first installment of her interview with Couric was laughable. Especially the end. I continue to be flabbergasted at the people who truly believe she's qualified for anything.

Since Sarah Palin was selected for the vice-presidential nomination, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has given more press conferences than she has.
