‘Cowardly’ Palin Minder Gets an Apology

Nicolle Wallace, who yesterday was accused by Weekly Standard executive editor Fred Barnes of being the “cowardly” McCain staffer who bought Sarah Palin $150,000 worth of new clothes “on her own credit card,” has been vindicated. Barnes, appearing on Fox News this evening, said: “I was rough on Nicole Wallace of the McCain campaign, who was identified as the one responsible for getting the expensive clothes for Sarah Palin and being cowardly and not admitting she was the one. Well, it turns out I was wrong, I discovered. I apologize for my mistake and apologize particularly to Nicole Wallace.”
