The McCain team used little more than a Google Internet search as part of a rushed effort to review Palin’s potential pitfalls.
McCain campaign cancels Palin appearance, Phyllis Schafly not happy.
“I think this is clearly somebody in the McCain campaign who doesn’t understand where the votes are coming from,” Schlafly told ABC News. “They only told me this at 10 o’clock last night, and it was a call from somebody down-the-line in the McCain campaign.
Is Palin not ready for prime time? Something else? The excuse given was she was busy on her VP acceptance speech, but hey, she could bungee in for an hour then leave, politicians do that all the time. Schafly is a serious player on the Republican Right and not to be trifled with. Is this yet another last-minute ill-thought-out decision by Maverick McCain (who by now is starting to resemble a stray calf walking around in circles)?
