||[Sep. 3rd, 2008|11:25 pm]
Chuck Todd: Mike Murphy, lots of free advice, we'll see if Steve Schmidt and the boys were watching. We'll find out on your blackberry. Tonight voters will get their chance to hear from Sarah Palin and she will get the chance to show voters she's the right woman for the job Up next, one man who's already convinced and he'll us why Gov. Jon Huntsman.
Peggy Noonan: Yeah.
Mike Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state governor world: Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. I mean, these guys -- this is how you win a Texas race, just run it up. And it's not gonna work. And --
PN: It's over.
MM: Still McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.
CT: I also think the Palin pick is insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchinson, too.
PN: Saw Kay this morning.
CT: Yeah, she's never looked comfortable about this --
MM: They're all bummed out.
CT: Yeah, I mean is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?
PN: The most qualified? No! I think they went for this -- excuse me-- political bullshit about narratives --
CT: Yeah they went to a narrative.
MM: I totally agree.
PN: Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and it's not what they're good at, they blow it.
MM: You know what' sreally the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.
CT: This is cynical, and as you called it, gimmicky.
Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy are diehard republicans. And they show why the media is reacting as they are to Palin. Not because they are chauvinistic or want the Democrats to win, but because they feel betrayed by their friend McCain and she just lost him the race.
They want McCain to win. They like McCain, they go to barbeques at his houses. And now he has betrayed them and fucked away his chances by chosing a nobody who turns out to carry all this dirt with her as well. And he did it only because he though it would make a good narrative.
Well they can't undo it, but they can sure show her. All this talk about how it is a democratic class war based in their leftie chauvinism is beyond stupid. She crashed the party and it wasn't her party to crash. And now they're not pulling their punches as much as they normally would. After all, the liberal media is anything but liberal.
