Palin Seeks to Smooth Things Over With McCain Adviser



Don't be surprised to see maligned McCain campaign adviser Nicolle Wallace rejoining GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin on her campaign plane very soon. We're told Palin personally called Wallace last night to smooth things over and, more importantly, stop the campaign from totally imploding.

As a vicious blame game within the campaign escalated over the $150,000 wardrobe debacle -- with many a finger pointing directly at former Bush White House aide Wallace -- McCain campaign officials scrambled to repair the public relations disaster.

The Sleuth has learned that Palin called Wallace last night to "knock down the false reports" about Palin blaming Wallace for what has come to be known as "shopping-gate," "wardrobe-gate" and "the shopping spree from hell." Palin also sought to put an end to the nasty anonymous name-calling, what with unnamed campaign officials this week calling Palin a "diva" and a "whack job."

"She didn't like the nonsense...she wants it stopped," a senior McCain-Palin campaign official tells the Sleuth. "Sarah called Nicolle to make sure she knows she respects and appreciates her and her work for the ticket."

Palin's phone call to Wallace came after Wallace, who has been accused not just of orchestrating the $150,000 shopping spree to outfit the vice presidential nominee but also of setting up the disastrous series of interviews with Katie Couric, spent Tuesday defending herself in a lengthy interview with The Daily Beast. That's when Wallace declared, "This campaign may do me in."

Separately, according to a campaign source, first dude Todd Palin also suggested last night that Wallace should "rejoin us all on the plane soon and SP agreed."

The Sleuth had been told that Palin banned Wallace from her plane at the height of negative coverage over the exorbitant shopping spree, which was first reported by Politico's Jeanne Cummings. But senior campaign officials deny that charge. They say Wallace never flew regularly with Palin anyway.

Palin has been nothing but problems since she entered the race. Thank goodness for us she will never enter the White House, lugging her personal negative baggage along.

Gosh, I sure hope that Bill Kristol and his friends get their way and Sarah Palin becomes the official Republican standard-bearer for the next four years. She is so dense and so annoying that she will further solidify the Democrats gains this year. Palin in 2012? You betcha!

Palin's true colors have come out as she's chafed against the tightly-controlled handling the McCain campaign realized they had to exert when she was first selected. She has shown herself to be all about her, to be viciously ambitious in the absence of any clear policy ability, and vindictive. I'm sure those qualities are admirable to some people, but I and many others prefer level-headed, intelligent competence. McCain's campaign shows no evidence of that. I've had the pleasure of working this week with a visiting scientist from Alaska who joked that most Alaskans he knows are considering voting for McCain just to get Palin out of state politics. Until she was placed in the national spotlight, Alaskans really didn't know much about her except that she was prettier than her competition. Her political career will soon be over, but she'll make a wonderful Faux News commentator.

Palin wants to be famous. I don't think she cares how she becomes famous....she just want to BE FAMOUS. Look at her career history. Beauty Queen, Sportscaster, Mayor (who courted the media), Gov. who also courted the media and hired a PR firm to create her image.
She believes her own hype.

She will step on anyone to get her way. Her history show it. She is a nasty and mean spirited woman.

I am not able to tell you if Sarah Palin is wearing a pair of Jimmy Choos shoes because I have no visual knowledge of them other than the fact that they are designer and very expensive. But what is extremely difficult for me to believe is that when Ms. Palin glided her arm into and down the sleeve of a jacket that has a label sown inside the back collar that reads, ‘Valentino’ she had no recognizable cognitive presence of the fact that this clothing is out of her persona price range. If she were true to her convictions of being for us team moms then she would have told Nicole Wallace; this is “not me”. Instead, you can see the entire family is wearing top of the line clothing. The outfit Palin had on yesterday looked like she is back to wearing Saks Fifth Avenue. In my eyes, everything about Sarah Palin is phony, she has never stood up for anyone, but the PALINS, and Alaskans; if they are rich, not Joe six-pack or butt crack. This isn’t Sexist; it’s Hypocritical.

Women have not been treated with equal respect in this campaign, but at least women are in it!

Can you even imagine being a woman and NOT being able to vote?

Thanks to the suffragettes, America has women voters and wide range of women candidates, and we are a better country for it! Women have voices and choices! Just like men.

But few people know ALL of the suffering that our suffragettes had to go through, and what life was REALLY like for women.

As a Democrat I'm finding the Republican campaign to be unbelieveable. First McCain, if you believe him, selected an unknown governor to be his running mate. There are no qualified women in the Republican party in congress or in an agency that could fill in? No business executive they could find? The RNC then cries 'elitist' whenever someone ask her about anything. When she gives a nonsense answer they claim the media is out to get her. Now Ms Paline, who one would expect should be devoting her time to helping the person whose name heads the ticket to get elected, seems to be promoting herself. Next Ms Paline is depicted over and over again as being a hockey mom, just one of the girls but what does the RNC do? Take her on a $150K shopping spree with stops at Neiman Marcus. How many hockey moms shop at Neiman Marcus? I have no problem with the RNC buying her clothes for campaigning but who at the RNC thought that buying clothes at Neiman Marcus for a hockey mom made sense. Sounds like an elitist thing to do. It's just amazing watching the Republicans come apart.

This Democrat and Obama voter would like to personally thank John McCain for the gift he gave us all by selecting Sarah Palin.

To say that I dislike Sarah Palin is putting it very, very mildly. In selecting her as his VP candidate, John McCain instantly forfeited a 25-year reputation for integrity and reinforced the view that he's no difference than George W. Bush. I'd probably feel sorry for him, if I wasn't so infuriated at the fact that he put the country in grave danger.

Let's look at how the McCain-Palin campaign has revealed infighting in the last week or so. This is the kind of dysfunctional administration we can expect if McCain is elected. This is certainly not what we need at this time.

Also look at how the McCain campaign's ugly rhetoric and how it has fomented hate and turned us against each other.

Now contrast this with the Obama-Biden campaign. Professional, one of the best run campaigns ever, inspired staff and supporters.

McCain likes to hype that he is a bi-partisan, a maverick. But it is Obama who has received many endorsements from senior level Republicans. It Obama who is bringing Republicans and Democrats together.

Palin is still shopping according to a story by Jake Tapper yesterday.

This time it was an Ann Taylor store in Nevada. Why is she still shopping after spending $150,000 plus saying most of the clothes haven't left the plane!

and then there's this:

"And some Republicans are starting to now say they should have seen this coming, since Palin has a reputation for making friends who can help her and then screwing them over."

There's a list of how she has used and then tossed friends and mentor's under the bus in her quest for what she wants.

Unfortunately, liberal is no longer a corollary of Democrat. You guys have become more loyal to a party than to the origins of your beliefs

The recent news is:
Sarah acting like the next run for her, is the White House.
I guess a house would have to fall on her to let her know no one thinks she is Presdential material.
If the GOP/ Republicans learn anything it is, she is unpredictable and attracts people with anti views on most things.

It is clear to most of us she may have lit a fire under McCain, but, the flame went out.
Unless the GOP does a better job of picking a 2012 candidate: they will continue to mess up any chances of regaining what they lost on this risky pick.
Sarah, needs to go back to Alaska and stay there.
Perhaps, even spend some time getting to know her children. Ya Know! the little ones she totes around.
Betcha! they would like the old Hockey Mom back!
Sarah, has a very large ego: kinda like, ya know! the Joe guy! He had a short moment in the sun, and the next thing, he is telling reporters, he might run for the Senate.
There ya go! Palin and Joe the Plumber!
Two small town folks with big ideas.

I truly, think Palin may be responsible for McCain falling off, after the bounce.
She opened her mouth and people knew she can hardly speak clearly about anything other then, what she is told to say.
It is clear, the only talent she displayed, was attack mode.
She is very good at that.
Forget the facts, she just repeats the same stuff true or false, doesn't matter.
It is what it is! The Palin Way!
GOP needs to get some new, younger, advisors, these old timers need, new ideas, the constant scare, tactics and sound bytes, tiresome..
It makes the party look like nasty, tricksters, dishonest..Hypocritical.
What happened to the Republican Party?

If this is what the Religious Right has brought to the Party: maybe the Party needs to go back to what Republicans used to stand for.
All this emphasis on the Pro Life Issue has narrowed the Party.
What is heard loud and clear: It is about, being Pro life, it is about, patriotic versas, not Patriotic, it is about GOD and Country, It is about,being American or not.
It is about war versas peace.
Finally, it is about polarizing a Nation.
That is what happened this election.
GOP sent the message: and it was a divider..All negative, bad idea!

Palin fit right in: to this message, so if you want to see this happen again.
Keep telling people she, may still be your pick for 2012.
You will have four years to rethink this idea.
Hopefully, Palin will find something to do back in Wasilla.
So we can have less of the Palin drama's.

I am so thankful this is almost over. I only hope those of us who don't vote for Governor Palin are not placed on her permanent "hater list" she uses for all of the people who do not adore her. I would not trust someone like her who uses people for her own self interests and then turns on them immediately after getting what she wants. Will be interesting to see the fallout from this one and who she turns on - maybe McCain himself?

Supporters of Sarah Palin neglect to consider our next President will not only have to manage the nation but also play a leading role in international affairs. If the inarticulate, provincial George Bush was an embarrassment compared to the likes of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, Nicolas Zarkosy, Jan Peter Balkenende and other leaders of the free world, then should McCain die in office and Sarah Palin become President, she would be a total joke.

Palin's experience as PTA president, mayor of a small town, (pop. 5,000), two-year governor of a sparsely populated state (pop. 500,000) doesn’t quite cut it; nor does her hockey mom, beauty queen, academic disadvantaged, religious fundamentalist, folksy, persona do much for her presidential, world-leader image. Then there are the pending concerns that are likely to escalate into media-fodder scandals should she take office—her abuse of power, her pregnant daughter’s shotgun wedding, her involvement with the Alaska Independence Party, her allowing the First-Dude to meddle in government business, and other issues about her personal life and character that would no doubt crop up over time.

Barack Obama, of course, is no bargain either. As a one-term Illinois senator and two-year U.S. senator, his experience is scant, but, at least, by serving in a various Senate committees, he has acquired some inside knowledge on national and international affairs.

John McCain, to be sure, was the better qualified candidate. Had he picked Joe Lieberman or someone else of equal stature as his running mate, he would now be double digits ahead of Obama in the polls. Sarah Palin did energize the lowest common denominator of the conservative base, but in so doing, she has alienated many undecided voters who would have made the difference on November 4. Joe Lieberman may be short on charisma, but by dint of his knowledge and unblemished record, he would eventually have won over the conservative base and most undecided voters as well.

Also, the fact that McCain allowed his staffers to foist Palin on him sight unseen (clearly, she was not on his short list) betrays a lack of leadership. He might yet win the election, but if he loses, it will be largely because of Sarah Palin.

It's a shocking that Wallace would 'pay' for the "disasterous" interview with Katie Couric. It wasn't her mouth that formed non-English sentences and spewed Republican babble. The FULL blame for that mess belongs to Palin. If the latter is unable to articulate ideas without the aid of a teleprompter (like her so-called energy policy speech), then WHO would want to listen to her for the next four years? Not even Alaskans who will be her sole audience through the end of her term.

This woman is scarry--I've watched her mature as a campaigner over these last few weeks--she is learning and learning fast. Obviously there has been some serious talk about how her behavior has damaged the campaign, and Palin has apparently taken it to heart. This call to Wallace is an indication of how far she is willing to go to help the campaign. don't get me wrong, I cannot stand her--she is loud, shrewish, and just a little to folksy. She is definitely in this for herself and she is going to grab as much power and authority as she can. She could be a real problem for McCain if they are elected. I pray they are not.

But then again McCain showed his true lack of intellect.
He got one to many bumps in the head a few years back. There are no more FOUR STAR ADMIRALS to "bale him out" this time. as the old saying goes "he made his own bed now he has to sleep in it".

How ironic. I've worked with and for women most of my life and the one thing that I think I've found constant across the board is that when they cry sexist it is almost always due to the words and/or actions of other women. What (straight) man in America would know or care about the difference in Sarah Palin's wardrobe? Who decided that she was in need of a makeover? My money says that it was a female adviser as most men, while they might enjoy looking at an attractive women, would rarely go out of their way to suggest a makeover and it would be even less likely that they would want to shell out the money necessary to see it happen. The campaign itself made it a bigger issue than it ever would have been. Had they left it alone it would have gone away as quickly as all of their poorly organized attacks against Obama.

Wallace should resist any overtures from Palin. Everybody who has ever tried to give Sarah Palin a leg up gets a knife in the back from Sarah Palin. She did to her early supporter in Wassila, same thing at the state level, and again trying to upstage John McCain to position herself for the future. Palin is like a reptile, unable to distinguish friend from foe. Everybody is a foe to her except when temporarily needed.
