John McCain,a disapointment? (( Oh, no! )) For not standing up for his running mate. (((Subject Line/2.0: CNN: "The Scapegoating of Sarah Palin")))

Why hasn't the Senator spoken up about the scurrolous attacks on his former running mate? 

Did he even have a voice in the decision-making process, passing up on his pal Mr. Leiberman?

Is Palin a Diva? If so, so what? So is Hilary, in a $6,000 pant suit. So is Joe Biden. Al Gore. John Kerry. Joe the Plumber. All Prima Donnas. All having their 15 minutes of High-Viz.

But this is about doing the right thing: If the John McCain I knew and grew to love in 2000, the straight-talking Maverick is what he said he is, he would go right on CNN, or Fox, WHAT-EVER, and defend his running mate, period.

(((( And in Newsweek's issue "44", they call her a Diva, omigod, they basically say she wanted to do it
her was sickening to read Meacham & Co.'s slanted views. Horrible stuff. ))))

But no. McCain is doing nothing. And the silence is deafening.

Out, not with a bang, but a whimper.

I say whomever set Sarah up with Katie Couric (down from Campaign Comm Dir. Ms.Nicolle Wallace) should be kicked so hard in the rear that THEY should sail clear to Ancorage's best consignment -- thrift shop.

And are they so 'anonymous'? I worked with (some of) those volunteers and staffers of McCain's. Never liked them. Never liked staffers and never hope to see 'cliques' who are jealous of the likes of people like Palin anyway.
When grapes are sour, fingers point. It is human nature. Sure is. THEY WILL NOT WORK FOR "TEAM SARAH" IN 2012.

Shall I name names?  > __________________________, ________________________, _______________________________, ______________________________, _______________________________________, ______________________________, _______________________________  < 

Remember: Palin was the reason we showed up. 10,000 at a time.

Campbell Brown (CNN) said it best, calling it "The Scapegoating of Sarah Palin" after all, Mark Salter, Steve Schmidt, Lindsay Graham, Cindy and John McCain, and ALL OF YOU STAFFERS, YOU PICKED HER! ((( own it !)))

and even Newsweek surprises and makes good, and they write "Palin's 2012 Playbook" :
Make Friends With Your Friends -When Ronald Reagan lost the GOP nomination to Gerald Ford in 1976, he wasted no time becoming the 1980 frontrunner by setting up his own PAC, and raising money for other GOP candidates around the country. You could start by helping Republican candidates raise money in the 2010 midterms, a strategy that would keep your name in the headlines and at the same time, allow you to put a few favors in the bank, which any good pol knows can be drawn on later. "The more candidates you raise money for the more supporters you have down the line," says Keith Appell, a Washington, D.C.-based conservative public-relations consultant.
