Palin was "Mentally Limited"

Okay, I'm going to try to be fair about this whole 60 Minutes thing. First off, it is absolutely hilarious that 60 Minutes does a huge interview with numerous staffers about an irrelevant private citizen.

Secondly, I don't think that they were necessarily sitting down just to trash Palin. Did they try to make her the scapegoat after the campaign? Oh, yeah. Listen to this interview Palin gave to the Bob and Mark Show right after the election. You can hear the transformation in her voice as she begins to realize that she's the one who's going to be thrown under the bus. "It's flippin' bizarre...." Listen to all three parts. I couldn't tell you off the top of my head which part it's in.

I say this in defense of the McCain aides - they had no idea what they were getting into. The vetters knew Palin's record, etc.... but the aides weren't in on all of that. Well, Schmidt was in on some of it.

The communication in the campaign was horrible. And Palin is not a typical politician. She probably did blindside the junk out of them and scare them to death in some cases. They didn't know her. They didn't know how to deal with her. Not to mention the campaign was full of people who had vendettas and a pessimism to beat the band.

Oh, well. Their loss:)

You know what cracks me up? Schmidt complaining about how the staffers had to mop up Palin's "messes" like her statements on the Troopergate thing.

How long has this guy been working on campaigns? Hello! This is what staffers do. Candidates say stuff and staffers scramble.

I wonder how many staffers scrambled when Joe Biden talked about how he likes to go to a restaurant that's been closed for years and years.

I wonder how many staffers scrambled when Michelle Obama said that this was the first time in her adult life that she was proud of her country.

I wonder how many staffers scrambled when Barack Obama said there were 57 states (actually 58 - he had one more to go).

Schmitty - do us all a favor and grow up.

Leaving Schmidt aside, check this douchebag out:

Well, looks like that "mentally limited" VP candidate is going to outsmart all of you.

Maybe this was part of her devious plan all along. "I'll get on as VP and then I'll blow it! Hahahahahaha! And then I'll come back and beat the tar out of all of their sorry butts! Hahahahahaha! I'll blow the Couric interview to make them think I'm stupid; that way they will constantly underestimate me and never guess how smart I am! Hahahahahahaha!"

I’m told, and would suspect anyway, that the LSM will be using their new ammunition tomorrow. I probably shouldn’t even try to watch Doberman. I hope some of the good guys speak her side.

So many Republican insiders using the same leftist ridicule techniques that the left uses. Some on that Republican race42012 site too. Aren’t we Republicans suppose to be different - better than that?

Have you ever read, “Animal Farm?” At the end, the animals are looking back and forth between the opposing parties: the people, and the pigs. And as they look back and forth, they realize they’re not able to tell the difference. How prophetic.

I know Sarah is a true reformer - this one is real - and so some must oppose her. But I had thought our teammates, the other Republicans, would oppose her with a little more class than the Democrats they say they’re better than.

You know what I would really love to see? A 60 minutes interview with Jason and Randy.
