“I answered him yes,” Ms. Palin said, “because I have the confidence in that readiness and knowing that you can’t blink, you have to be wired in a way of being so committed to the mission, the mission that we’re on, reform of this country and victory in the war, you can’t blink. So I didn’t blink then even when asked to run as his running mate.”
The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the Senator will travel to the debate this afternoon. Following the debate, he will return to Washington to ensure that all voices and interests are represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners.
Blink. Or, if you will, Marshall’s Bitch-Slap Theory of Politics backfired on McCain. McCain set an ultimatum, Obama told him to piss off.
Such a bunch of tossers. I really do not know what it is that Obama does, whether he has some sort of amazing kung-fu, but he just drives his opposition insane. Now granted, the folks in the McCain campaign were sort of unhinged to begin with, but they are in full meltdown mode right now. The McCain campaign right now reminds of the Clinton campaign in its death throes, when surrogates like Geraldine Ferraro were out there making an ass out of themselves on a daily basis and Hillary was running her White People Won’t Vote For Him Tour and bringing up RFK and the like. They are just sort of running around doing random crazy shit, hoping it works. Monday it was a full frontal assault on the media, Wednesday it was “suspending” the campaign, and who knows what today will bring.
Something Obama does just drives his opposition into madness. I hope he is able to push McCain into a full on eruption tonight.
The other question- what will be their shenanigans to get Palin out of her debate next week, because believe me, they are TERRIFIED? If I were a betting man, I would bet a family emergency. Who could fault a mom for skipping the debate to tend to the kids? Maybe some urgent issue that needs her attention in Alaska. Putin stages some troops in the Aleutian islands and nothing stands between freedom and the Russian horde but Sarah Palin and the 4,000 brave members of the national guard?
