These are the words of a political operative

McCain volunteer Ashley Todd tells the police she’s “upset with the media for blowing this into a political firestorm.”

I’m not saying Todd is an operative. But those are not the words of a political innocent with an apparent history of mental illness who just got arrested, having her life go seriously off the tracks, while the national media watched. Someone coached her to say that. It’s classic Rovian spin, blame everyone but yourself, especially the media. But it’s not working for them anymore, is it?
