"Whack-Job"

More

Interesting new wrinkle, courtesy of Howie Kurtz. The anonymous McCain campaign source who called Palin a "whack-job" was not a minor figure, according to the great Mike Allen:

"I found it illuminating because it came from an extremely senior McCain person, clearly reflecting the views of others in the inner circle. I would not have used it from the peanut gallery, internal or external."

I'm glad they get it. But they are still cowards for not putting their name on the quote. Palin is more about McCain than it is about Palin.
