Video: Michelle hammers McCain for not condemning the Palin smears

posted at 5:05 pm on November 12, 2008 by Allahpundit

More in sadness than in anger. Like she says, this isn’t standard political sniping on the Kerry/Edwards model; whispers about differences in strategy are one thing, whispers about whether the VP’s an abject moron quite another. And for the record, Cavuto’s wrong in wondering whether McCain’s heard about the smears. We know that he has, from the ‘Cuda herself and from one of his own top people in New Hampshire.

Hey, remember my Senate post from this morning? Dude.

McCain is a huge failure.

But Benny, most of the smears have been summarily dismissed as garbage by people who would know.

bamaconservative on November 12, 2008 at 5:10 PM

Sarah Palin was a threat to the good ole boy netowrk in the GOP and they are terrified of her.

So is the Obamites. They constantly attack her not for veiwpoints but for silly petty made up things.

William Amos on November 12, 2008 at 5:10 PM

Why won’t McShamnesty fight?

Because he’s a tired, old fart with no Malkins.

He defended Rev. Wright more vigourously than he did his own VP.

Have you no shame, Juan?

You’re right Michelle, as usual, we need someone like you to point out the problem with our politicians. McCain is so mean to conservatives but alas, don’t ever criticize the democrats. Remember even in his campaign stump, he was defending Obama. I think it is so weird how McCain sabotaged his own campaign in a lot of ways.

mariloubaker on November 12, 2008 at 5:12 PM

On topic – bing. He is so obviously either comfortable with this line of attacks, or disinterested in the outrageous nature of the attacks. It seems low class at best.

On the other hand, yeah, Cavuto’s right too. The losers tend to tear into each other. Politicians are quite generally of very low personal character, imo.

They’ve already been debunked by other staffers and Palin herself. She shouldn’t HAVE to be embroiled in this. McCain’s people sabotaged her and he has left her swinging in the breeze.

After everything she and her family went through…after everything she brought to his ailing campaign…all the excitement and energy and millions of votes he wouldn’t have gotten without her (mine being one of them)…McCain has proven himself NO gentleman. He is despicable.

Umm, no. McCain demanding to be there for O’Reilly to Interview Palin, and a similar demand by McCain for the CNBC interview, are just figments of our imagination. It couldn’t have had anything do with previous Palin’s interview debacle, and McCain percieving her as unprepared.

Well, Maverick:
You lost the election…”these things happen.”
You killed the nation with your amnesty agenda…”these things happen.”
You lost your senate seat because we are no longer the United States, we are Mexico de Norte….”these things happen.”
You need to be put out to pasture…”these things happen.”

The NAFTA was said to be more like “Rack-em, Stack-em,” or whatever with CAFTA stuck in there … the Africa one was a slip of the tongue, which you can see her make a similar gaffe in her recent ADN interview… but you have to be purposely malicious to believe she doesn’t know if Africa is a country or a continent…

BTW, I think the guy who’s leaking is Salter… Salter seems more excitable than excitable andy… which would explain the whole bath robe business…

Screw the Palin leaks… who was the big blabber mouth telegraphing all the strategy?

ninjapirate on November 12, 2008 at 5:29 PM

Because it’s Mark Salter.

lodge on November 12, 2008 at 5:09 PM

Yep, I think that everyone must now admit that Salter is at least one of the sources, which is why McCain is staying quiet. I generally didn’t read The New Republic, but they did have a pretty good article earlier this year about McCain’s management style.. McCain tends to treat his staff (especially long time loyalists like Salter) as family members and has a hard time criticizing them/ taking sides. Which is basically why his campaign collapsed last year. So he’s never going to strongly denounce the Palin garbage.

(Plus, Salter will be ghost-writing another book about the 2008 campaign which McCain will be out pimping just in time for the 2009 holiday season).

Illinidiva on November 12, 2008 at 5:30 PM

Hello !!! – I keep saying it – McCain finished 5th from the bottom of his class at Annapolis (Naval Academy).

This man is not a bright bulb on intellect.

I would have, but it was over by the time it got to Kentucky.

fossten on November 12, 2008 at 5:14 PM

It was over when it got to Virginia but I voted for Fred anyway.

When the poll-person asked Which Party? I answered the “pro-American” party…she laughed and handed me the Republican color-coded card.

Then the guy leading me to the voting machine said, “well, Democrats are Americans too.”

And I responded, “yeah, but Republicans are PRO American.”

That shut his piehole.

He can just go off into the sunset with Lindsay Graham and eat it for all I care.
We learned a lot this year. We don’t need anymore mealy-mouthed liberals posing as republicans.
Extinct Species-RINOS!

HornetSting on November 12, 2008 at 5:34 PM

All he had to say was, “All these stories about Sarah Palin are completely false. She is a fine person and a fine public servant. I wish her nothing but the best in her future endevours.”

But, did he? Noooo!

Instead, he went schmoozing on Letterman, that bastion of
Conservative Talk Shows.

Lord Have Mercy, I am so tired of Beltway Elitism I can’t stand it!

kingsjester on November 12, 2008 at 5:35 PM

McCain’s always been something of a jerk, in addition to being a RINO on most issues. That’s why most of us did not want him to win the nomination. And I’m sure McCain would like to blame Palin — or anybody else — for the failure of his campaign, but the fact is that he’s the one who failed to excite voters, not Palin.

Did it ever cross your minds that McCain isn’t rushing to Palin’s defense because the “smears” are accurate?

benny shakar on November 12, 2008 at 5:08 PM

If the smears were accurate, that would mean that McCain is an abject fool for choosing Palin as his running mate in the first place, wouldn’t it? I don’t believe McCain is a clueless moron any more than I believe that Sarah Palin is one. Palin may not be a policy wonk, but she is obviously a very bright and capable woman who learned what she needed to know to govern her state effectively, and undoubtedly would have done the same if she had been elected VP. Palin is also a principled woman with impressive natural leadership skills; she clearly has tremendous potential — and that is obviously scaring the crap out of a lot of less-principled people on both sides of the aisle.

Whilst I thought McCain could have been a bit more force full in what he said about the smears and in defending his running mate, I got the impression that he sees these so called campaign leaks as being absurd and that the whole situation is beneath his contempt. Therefore to make a big deal out of it only lends credence to to the notion that there is any substance to the stories in the first place.

Dreadnought223 on November 12, 2008 at 5:47 PM

I wrote the McCain campaign the night that Carl “school girl” Cameron gushed about the gossip.

Nobody’s naming the smearers, and perhaps they aren’t as deep in the campaign as they have made themselves out to be to the press.

This is a bit OT, but earlier today, one of the Left’s talking heads said that the “Cuda is “risking overexposure” now. To my knowledge, Greta’s interview was the first with Governor Palin, and Matt Lauer’s was the second. Seriously, I don’t think that is “overexposure” in anyone’s book. Not even The Big Moonbat Book of Knowledge.

Keep speaking up, Sarah! With each interview, you prove yourself to be the smart, honest woman that we know you to be! You’ve got the Lefties shaking in their wing tips!

Thanks, Michelle, for your standing up against these ugly attacks on Gov. Palin. That McCain would rather stand up for his enemies than his running mate is appalling! I’ve e-mailed his office but of course have been ignored.
Michelle, it’s always good to see you on Fox. Hope that increases. You speak for so many of us!

Listen, Skippy, Michelle Malkin is one of the brightest spots in American Journalism today.

If you don’t like her, don’t blog on her sites.

Don’t blog on her sites? You think posting a comment is “blogging”?

SnarkVader on November 12, 2008 at 6:45 PM

I normally agree with MM 99.999% of the time. But I can’t shake the feeling that people aren’t rushing to Palin’s defense because Palin told them not to and let everyone know “I got this one

Somehow you’re inclined to believe that the people who were more than estatic over the smears are likely to believe Palin when she denies them? I can see it already – the Left will go Oh, of course Gov Palin, now that you say it was all lies we realize how we were wrong to attack you like a pack of rabid dogs.

The comments implying that McCain isn’t addressing the smears because it is the truth just support my opinion. Apparently Gov Palin’s denials hasn’t convinced those posters.

And shouldn’t McCain consider the concept that if it is all true, it only reflects poorly on him? He is the one who picked her. If he doesn’t care about Palin’s reputation you’d think he’d atleast care about his own.

Fine…I’ll write slower so you can understand.
It you do not like Michelle Malkin and her viewpoint, do not post comments on her sites. Go over to the Kos Kids where I am sure they will be more apt to appreciate your point of view.

Remember these lies?
Did she ban Harry Potter? No, it wasn’t written yet.

I really enjoy how there are some on the left wing blogs who, after the ‘Cuda mentioned this in a couple of interviews, are now trying to say that it depends on which Harry Potter she was talking about, and how she was mayor from 1996-2002. No, you morons, the original story that created the book ban insanity was the trouble she had with Wasilla’s department heads, including the librarian, her first year in office. That would be 1996. And…wait for it…Harry Potter hadn’t been published yet in the US. Wait a minute, why am I trying to use logic with these people?

Go Michelle!!!

Next you should start attackin O’Reilly, he has been a real jerk especially with Palin. He thinks he could just denigrate a woman and expect her to come on his show. His arrogance and disgusting behavior is beyond the pale.

Love that song.

Cavuto… never liked him.

Oh, and it was strange seeing a MM that doesn’t smile.

:(

Neil Cavuto is the best guy on Fox, hell, on television.
He rocks! Of course, I was an accounting major….

Of course, I was an accounting major….

HornetSting on November 12, 2008 at 7:07 PM

lol. I was not an accounting anything… maybe that explains it ;)

I was a Radio, RV, and Film major.

I learned how to count backwards from 5.

kingsjester on November 12, 2008 at 7:12 PM

Did Michelle even bother to vote for Palin?

I think people like MM are making way too much out of this for their own reasons. McCain has never said an unkind word about Palin. I don’t know what MM thought he was supposed to do.

TV not RV

Whoopsie.
