The Schmidt Hits the Fan

From POLITICS DAILY:

In “Going Rogue,” Sarah Palin settled some scores with those she felt had done her wrong, including top aides to John McCain. One of the aides who came in for some of the most blistering criticism was a top campaign strategist, Steve Schmidt, and he’s now punching back. But paybacks can be tough, as Schmidt demonstrated in his appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday night.

The Book to Nowhere: Thanks, but No Thanks

From POLITICS DAILY:

Republican Sen. John McCain, who lifted former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin out of obscurity to be his vice presidential partner last year, isn’t saying much about Palin’s new tell-all, blame-all book. But Steve Schmidt, who managed the campaign and is a chief target in the book, doesn’t think much of “Going Rogue.”

Millions of pets’ ears won’t be bleeding

From Daily Finance:

First she got a big fat book deal. Then she was supposedly being courted for TV stardom. Now Sarah Palin could be taking into the airwaves in a different form, as the host of her own radio talk show. “[S]ources say Palin representatives have been quietly testing the waters to see how much interest radio syndicators have for her,” reports Inside Radio.

Witless Protection Program, Part 2

In Part 1, we saw how the Princess Protection Program put Princess Sarah Palin in an undisclosed location along with her friend and political tutor, Batshit Michele Bachmann. After a couple of years of fishing and conspiracy theorizing and studying the names of magazines and newspapers just in case Katie Couric asks Princess those tricky questions again, the dynamic duo of dodoheads is almost ready to reenter the public arena. All that’s left to do is a royal makeover.

The Party of Personal Responsibility…except when it comes to accepting responsibility

From Greg Mitchell at Editor & Publisher:

NEW YORK (Commentary) In the months after the November election, and then gaining even more attention as Barack Obama became president, are charges that the media helped elect him by attacking, of mocking, Sarah Palin. Numerous pundits and conservative activists have alleged that she had given John McCain a big boost in the polls when first named and that she would have help drive him to victory if not for the later treatment by Katie and Tina and Charlie Gibson and all the rest.

But this is not true.

Just Like Dr. Pepper, So Misunderstood: Battle Royale!

Kids, in Part I and Part II of this series, we explored the actions of Princess Sarah, before, during, and after her bid for for the vice-presidency.
From Top News:

Even though reports of agitation between the McCain and Palin camps bubbled up in the final weeks of the campaign, as Barack Obama began pulling away and the GOP duo was unable to regain the momentum, when the defeated team of McCain and Palin split up in Arizona on Wednesday, the personal differences were starkly visible.

Various press accounts suggest that Palin rubbed many of the McCain aides the wrong way. The most recent one, according to published reports, was the election night incident when Palin irked McCain aides saying she wished to make her own concession speech, other than McCain’s.
