CBS Has More Palin Gold in the Vault
Posted on Sep 29, 2008
There was so much excitement last week between the bailout showdown and the debate that many people didn’t get a chance to see Sarah Palin’s tailspin interview with Katie Couric. CBS, it turns out, has even more in store. The network will air at least two more embarrassing clips before Thursday’s VP debate.
John McCain has sent the cream of his campaign crop to take over Palin’s preparation ahead of her face-off with Joe Biden.
Additionally, at the urging of McCain himself, Palin “will leave late Monday for his Arizona ranch to prepare for the high-stakes debate.”
“The moves follow several shaky performances by Gov. Palin last week and come amid concern and grumbling from Republicans, and even a few queries from her husband, Todd Palin.”
William Kristol: “I’m told McCain recently expressed unhappiness with his staff’s handling of Palin. On Sunday he dispatched his top aides Steve Schmidt and Rick Davis to join Palin in Philadelphia. They’re supposed to liberate Palin to go on the offensive as a combative conservative in the vice-presidential debate on Thursday.”
