Watching CBC news last night (all paraphrased) on the US election:
“Barack Obama, in an unprecedented move, spent 6 million on a primetime infomercial. (bla bla bla about his campaign.)”
“But the Republican camp hasn’t given up yet. Sarah Palin was in Ohio (interview with some supportive college girls). Republicans are angry with Palin for possibly campaigning for her own candidacy in 2012.”
Based on the CBC, it was as if John McCain didn’t exist.
So who has moved on to 2012–Palin? or the media? (I’m still wondering what Joe Biden is up to.)
Brigitte shouldn’t be surprised but still: “Republicans” are angry with Palin? Which Republicans? All of them? Ah, er, except for Rush listeners (he’s a pretty enthusiastic fan), a batch of conservative commentators, and even Karl Rove, who wrote this morning that he had “already cast my absentee ballot in Kerr County, Texas — joyfully, enthusiastically marking the straight Republican column.” I’m sure there are McCain aides and supporters who resent Sarah Palin’s popularity. But good grief, isn’t that sort of why they drafted her in the first place? Why can’t the CBC (and most other traditional media outlets) see the grumblers for what they are? Oh, and have they talked about Wendy Button while reporting on the Obama campaign?
