All morning long I’ve been hearing and reading media reports quoting an “unnamed republican source” as saying that “the team assigned to vet … [Sarah] Palin in Alaska” didn’t get there until the day before John McCain “stunned the political world with his vice-presidential choice.”
I’d like to know exactly who this source is and what his or her motivations are… My gut reaction is that it’s someone with an ax to grind against John McCain or more likely Sarah Palin.
The McCain campaign says Sarah Palin was thoroughly vetted and that Palin had informed them of about her daughters pregnancy, her husbands DUI arrest 22 years ago and discussed the so called “troopergate scandal” with them.
Personally, I don’t put much stock in what amounts to gossip from unnamed sources and you shouldn’t either… I have no doubt that the McCain campaign vetted Palin and determined that what they found in no way disqualifies her from being vice president. And the truth is it doesn’t… My gut feeling is that Palin’s nomination has the left, and some on the right rattled and that they’re resorting to campaign of whispered rumors and innuendo to destroy her or at least her candidacy.
On a related note… It seems the love affair between John McCain and the media is apparently over… Welcome to the Republican party John, they were bound to turn on you sooner or later.
