In Fairness to Sarah Palin

From the day John McCain announced that Sarah Palin was his running mate, I was already skeptical. My initial reaction was, this move was an attempt to catch the Hillary voters.

That skepticism turned to disgust after hearing her in those interviews and her relishing her role as an attack dog. Palin's repeating those "palling around with terrorist" lines no matter how many facts checks were released stating that it isn't true was irritating.

But in fairness to her, bad comments coming after the election about her (i.e. Palin thought that Africa is a country) which allegedly came from McCain's top advisers are equally disgusting. These are the people who vetted for her, people who said that she can be just one heartbeat away from the most powerful position in the world. And now they are all saying these. If these are the kind of people surrounding McCain, it is no longer surprising why they failed in this election.

Here's what CNN's Campbell Brown has to say to these people:
