Why Does John McCain Have A Gag Order On Sarah Palin? Why can't she answer questions from the Press?
"So until at which point in time we feel like the news media is going to treat her with some level of respect and deference, I think it would be foolhardy to put her out into that kind of environment."
-McCain campaign manager Rick Davis
The reason Sarah Palin won't give interviews is not because she's so woefully uneducated about issues facing Americans, it's because the press won't treat her with deference? Seriously, that's the best they can do?
I thought the press was supposed to ask the "tough" questions.
Sarah Palin is a Joke. They might as well just put a ball gag in her mouth.
As an attorney one of the lessons you learn in law school is during a trial, NEVER ask a question you don't know the answer to. The McCain campaign isn't hiding Sarah Palin because they're waiting for "deference," they're hiding her because even they DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'LL SAY NEXT. The Maverick might just say something really fucking stupid.
And the campaign will then have to make the ridiculous claim that the candidate doesn't speak for the campaign. Wait, they already did that with John McCain.
Does she know anything? Can she handle basic questions? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Why half of America has bought this bullshit is beyond me. Maybe it's because the "liberal media" has been too deferential.
