Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee who revealed Monday that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, earlier this year used her line-item veto to slash funding for a state program benefiting teen mothers in need of a place to live.
Yeah. It's hypocrisy. Yeah, it's a bullshit move. But you know what? The right eats this up. They're all hypocrites. Unprincipled, sleazy hypocrites, who will do anything for glory.
How else do you explain this?
McCain Hires GOP Operative Who Helped Smear Him in South Carolina in 2000
September 01, 2008 8:46 PM
Former officials of Sen. John McCain's 2000 campaign expressed shock and disbelief Monday to learn than the GOP presidential nominee had hired South Carolina political consultant Tucker Eskew.
Eskew, along with Warren Tompkins and Neal Rhodes, were key members of then-Gov. George W. Bush's South Carolina team during the 2000 primaries. McCain and his team long held Bush, Tompkins, Rhodes and Eskew responsible for the various smears against McCain and his family in the Palmetto state during that contentious contest.
John McCain's war service is to be commended, sure. But if I hear anybody call John McCain a Maverick from here on out? I will punch them squa in the nuts.
