    It would be more convincing if they could name even 1 source to back up all those allegations. You know, actually give the name of somebody instead of just spreading unsubstantiated rumors.

  2. Nate,

    I agree. But I still chose to link that because:

    1) Someone started the story about the $150K waredrobe that the RNC bought for Palin.

    2) It’s consistent with how I saw Romney and his followers treat another evangelical earlier in this election. I’m not trying to be inflamatory, just stating my observations.

    Thanks for your comment.

    It this very moment Romney is standing next to McCain in Ohio

    And what does he get in return? BS unsubstantiated rumors with no source.

    There is no doubt Romney has done more for McCain/Palin’s 2008 success (and fundraising) than any person on the planet.

  4. I agree that Romney had a lot to do with McCain winning the Republican nomination.

    We can agree to disagree about whether Romney is part of the problem or part of the solution.

    Romney is no conservative. Fred Thompson was the only electable conservative in GOP field—and his run wasn’t serious. There were some good men in the field, but none with national prominence.

    About this time last year I bumped into the Charlie Cook last year at Dulles airport here in DC. He said then—before Iowa, that McCain would win the nomination. I don’t subscribe to conspiracies, but I’ve thought several times about contacting him and inquiring “how” he knew. (In the interest of complete disclosure, Cook predicted that Hillary would win the democratic contest.)

  6. Scott,

    I personally believe that Thompson was John McCain’s stalking horse. McCain lost the South Carolina primary to George W. Bush in 2000, and Thompson’s whole purpose in the race was to ensure that his “good friend John McCain” didn’t lose the South Carolina primary to Mike Huckabee in 2008. Mission Accomplished, Thompson quit the race three days later.

    As for conspiracies, it’s actually nothing new. Phyllis Schlafly wrote a book about it in 1964. I’ve written a few posts about how that relates to the 2008 primaries.

    As for as Hillary, I believe she helped John McCain win the Florida primary. I believe that she WAS the pick, and that Obama was supposed to be her VP. But then Obama and Soros staged a coup. Read Hillary’s 2008 Presidential Game Plan.

  7. Scott says:

    RP, You may be right. Lord, I wish things weren’t so Machiavellian. When Cook predicted McCain—I said, “You’ve got to be kidding?”—but he was serious, and here we are. Mc’s pick of Palin was sheer brilliance and she may drag him across the line. None of the other “contenders” could have changed the game the way Gov Palin has changed the dynamic of this race.

  8. McCain’s pick of Palin was due to Mike Huckabee.

    Palin didn’t make McCain’s “short list”, and McCain was prepared to pick a pro-choice VP.

    Huckabee’s RNC delegates (from the states he won) threatened to walk out of the convention if McCain picked a pro-choice VP. If they had walked out, it would have created a situation at the convention, and McCain may not have exited the convention with the nomination.

    McCain chose Palin to pacify the “Ultra-Right”…you know, those “Agents of Intolerance”.

    The result is history. Everyone from the “base” to independents to PUMA Democrats LOVE Sarah Palin.

    Remember to thank Mike Huckabee for that.
