Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan and former John McCain adviser, Time columnist, and MSNBC contributor Mike Murphy were caught on tape disparaging John McCain's selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate.
"It's over," Noonan said.
When Chuck Todd asked her if this was the most qualified woman the Republicans could nominate, Noonan responded, "The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives. Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and that's not what they're good at, they blow it."
Murphy characterized the choices as "cynical" and "gimmicky."
Can you blame them for saying that after a few days of Palin being exposed for amateur politician and major league scandalized piece of republican failure that she really was? Even many in the neoconservative wet set are repulsed by McCain's sheer, utter and irrefutable incompetence in running his campaign.
There is little doubt as to what turned the misfiring John McCain campaign into a comedy of errors.
