At the time it probably seemed like a rational response to Hillary's popularity.

Nooooooo.   As soon as she opened her mouth, people ran from her.   You mean to tell me Schmidt didn't hear her talk?  Listen to the words that came out of her mouth?

It's hard to fathom how that's even possible.

"OK... so , we need to counter Hillary's popularity.. why do people support her? It it her eloquence, her grasp of complex policy matters?, her charisma?, her ability to stand her ground even when confronted by the hatred of virtually every Republican in America?... wait.. I've got it... she has a vagina!"

I wonder how Obongo's mind control people got to him. He must have accidentally turned on NPR or something.

Steve Schmidt is one of the people portrayed in HBO's Game Change, and IIRC he's one of the ones that has said the portrayal of the events in the movie are pretty darn accurate.  It's worth a watch if you get the chance.

In retrospect, this was probably a good thing. Sarah's ascent to the top of the Group Of Pricks is helping precipitate their demise.

She actually did okay in her first appearances, which had her reading off a Teleprompter and not having to take questions.  The speeches went a little overboard on the red meat, but it was nothing like her complete meltdown under the steely-eyed gaze of...Katie Couric.

No, it was a hissy fit of epic proportions because the GOP wouldn't let him put Lieberman on the ticket.

This guy shouldn't be so hard on himself.  He probably prevented the next OK City bombing.

He essentially created a nutcase wing of his party, real and powerful enough to primary out regular Republicans and cause the occasional political stunt in Washington.  He essentially gave the UN-manacle-boxcar conspiracy folks an opportunity to participate in the political process, and the belief that maybe they will get something done through congress and marches on Washington.

That was exactly the thought process and it was so patronizing and sexist... I think the fact that it was that transparent helped get Hillary voters who were disillusioned enthusiastic about voting for Obama because we were so disgusted.

That's the thing. Even in the HBO movie, everyone acted shocked that she was an idiot.  I fail to understand how anyone, after 5 minutes with this woman, didn't have questions.  After 10 minutes, serious questions.  15 minutes? Grave concerns.  Half an hour? Rule her out completely because she was both insane and not remotely intelligent and also, not able to be trained for the media/people.

Schmidt is trying to save his ruined career.  And he can't because he is responsible for Sarah Palin.  Sorry.

Add in that they thought people who supported Hillary Clinton would see a woman and blindly vote for her is pants on head stupid, and Schmidt should be ostracized to... well, wherever someone with his kind of money ends up when they epically fail... as should anyone on the McCain team who was so gung-ho on a woman being on the ticket they didn't vet the nutjob they unleashed on this country and everything that followed.

freak7: Had McCain not chosen a complete retard, he most likely wins the election.


You probably meant that as some kind of insult to Obama, but in fact that's exactly right. Had that vapid brain-damaged twunt not been a heartbeat away from the Presidency, McCain might very well have won over an untried junior Senator--or even Hilary Clinton. The thought of "President Palin" scared so many people away from McCain and his apparent poor health that you and her other supporters have only yourselves to blame if you're not happy with Obama. A better VP choice could have made the difference, and it's nobody's fault but yours.

Between that and exposing Ann Coulter as a troll, her journalistic bona fides are pretty secure. Underestimate her at your own peril, as La Sara and the GOP found out.

It's easy to lay the blame for Palin at John McCain's feet, and fun to speculate about whether he realized the damage she would do. But let's not forget the tens of millions of Republicans who were eager to make her Vice President of the United States of America. Oh sure, they all claim to have seen right through her now. But let's save them a slice or two of the blame pie anyway.

Too little, too late.

Schmidt should have started a nationwide apology tour on November 5, 2008. The Palin decision was the epitome of putting party over country. The fact that they didn't bother to vet her on policy showed their utter contempt for voters and their intelligence. "Hey! They have a black guy. We got us an ultra pro-life MILF with zazz!"

Two weeks later....

"Holy shiat! She's dumber than a bag of rocks and is not even close to being qualified for national office! Oh well, let's still push to win the race and hope to God that she never has to make a single decision."

Fark off, Schmidt. You have as much credibility on the issue as Richard Perle does when he concern trolls US foreign policy towards Syria.
