Palin Gets Asked A Question. Reporters Asked To Leave.
I’m sorry folks, but it’s getting downright comical at this point.
Via Politico comes this revealing moment after McCain and Palins’ meeting with Georgian President Saakashvilli and Ukrainian President Yushchenko…
McCain then looked around the room and gestured as if to welcome questions. The AP reporter shouted a question at Gov. Palin (â€œGovernor, what have you learned from your meetings?â€) but McCain aide Brooke Buchanan intervened and shepherded everybody out of the room.
Palin looked surprised, leaned over to McCain and asked him a question, to which your pooler thinks he shook his head as if to say â€œNo.â€
Do they seriously not understand how this looks? This woman is obviously not an idiot, so why not let her answer some questions from the press already?
One thing’s for sure…the McCain camp can’t keep this up for long. Palin’s credibility is dropping like a rock, and if they want her to be more of an asset than a liability, they’ll have to open up access.
Also, if I were her, I’d just start answering questions regardless of whether or not the McCain camp wanted me to or not. Because they could be doing serious damage to her long term political aspirations with this duck and dodge press strategy they’re inexplicably clinging to.
More as it develops…
