Delusions of the McCain campaign
September 29, 2008 1 Comment
Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby.
“It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”
hmm… could it be that the McCain campaign believes that this election is not about the issues facing this country? at least if they expect to win?
The McCain campaign realizes that the more time voters have to look at the McCain/Palin debacle, the worse their chances are. They appear to want anything that will “shut down the race” and divert attention away from the issues at stake in the election.
It makes a certain amount of sense…
especially with the Wall Street Journal reporting on September 29, 2008:
… in recent days, Gov. Palin flubbed quasi-mock debates in New York City and Philadelphia, some operatives said.
