The McCain camp, who ought to know, blames Bill Kristol more than anyone for the whole regrettable
string cheese Sarah Palin incident. Now Kristol says that the one thing that the Romney campaign needs right now is another stunt veep with baggage.
I know what you are thinking: you might as well ask a woodpecker what to do with an old tree. When he says you ought to hit it with your head until bugs fall out, it will sound a lot like what he said last week regardless of anything that happened in the interim. No bugs? Concussion? It fell on your garage? You’re not hitting it enough! Nonetheless, your thinking is wrong. These two things are not the same. Unlike Sarah Palin, Condoleeza Rice is a well-known quantity with little charisma, poor stage presence and no natural constituency and whose only notable achievements include missing the greatest terrorist attack in American history and then lying repeatedly about it, and referring to George W. Bush as ‘my husband.’
No doubt team Romney will get right on that.
