Palin Blasts McCain Aides

Sarah Palin continued her counterinsurgency against anonymous McCain aides yesterday, calling them “cruel,” “mean-spirited,” and “unprofessional”—in sum, “those guys are jerks.” The comments were made in an interview from Alaska. As to the charges that she didn’t know the countries in NAFTA or that Africa was a continent, Palin said various subjects had come up during debate preparation and her quotes were “taken out of context.” She also claimed that no RNC lawyers were coming to Alaska to try to reclaim the clothes she was bought during the campaign. John McCain’s post-election unveiling will be Tuesday, on The Tonight Show.
