From THE HUFFINGTON POST:
While visiting Chicago to support Mark Kirk, John McCain took a moment to defend Sarah Palin’s widely mocked crib notes, written on her hand during the Tea Party Convention last weekend.
“Which is more egregious,” he asked, as if the answer were obvious, “reading from a word on your hand or a teleprompter?”
McCain continued: “I continue to be entertained now by the continuous [hysterical] attacks on Sarah Palin, who [is] very, very popular with a significant segment of the American people.”
Translation: Holy crap, I might lose my Senate seat to J. D. Frickin’ Hayworth, so I have to be nice to this backstabbing bitch so the Teabaggers don’t keep going all nuclear on my ass! I gotta blame someone–I’ve got it 💡 –that damned liberal media! So what if I had them in my pocket (and at my barbecues) for so many years and still show up on every frickin’ Sunday news show? The Teabaggers love to hate the media!
Chris Wallace denied rumors that he rolled his eyes at Sarah Palin after their interview aired on “Fox News Sunday” and trashed Joe Scarborough for suggesting as such.
“Look at the end of Chris Wallace’s interview where he rolls his eyes, embarrassed,” Joe Scarborough said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “There’s no doubt he is. Now, he will deny that, but Chris was sending a message to all his friends: yes I know, she is not a serious thinker.”
When asked by Megyn Kelly if he was indeed rolling his eyes, Wallace said he wasn’t.
“No, is the quick answer to that,” he said. “Joe Scarborough lives out where the trolleys don’t run at night. The last time I heard about somebody getting that kind of secret message, it was Son of Sam hearing from a labrador retriever that he should go out and shoot people. I think that Morning Joe definitely needs to switch to decaf.”
“In Joe Scarborough’s defense, it’s not just Joe,” Kelly said. “Did you or did you not roll your eyes? What was that look into the camera?”
Wallace never answered the question, instead praising Palin’s performance in the interview and speculating on her political future.
He later said of Scarborough, “I’m offended that people watch him on MSNBC.”
More fake outrage and yet another pseudo-war between Faux News and MSNBC.
