Last night on her CNN show “No Bias, No Bull,” Campbell Brown went off on the anonymous sources in the McCain campaign who are trying to trash Gov. Sarah Palin, noting that some of the allegations being reported were “patently false”:
They are the top advisers to John McCain’s failed campaign and they are desperate to find someone to blame for their long, long list of mistakes. They have been launching grenades at Palin and her supporters. CNN has found some of their allegations to be patently false.
You will hear people say, “This is what always happens with a losing campaign,” and hopefully, this is the last time we will be talking about these people. But what they have done just in the last few days to save their own skins is worth a final comment.
To those top McCain advisers who leaked the little story about seeing Sarah Palin in a towel; to those who called her and her family “Wasilla hillbillies” while using her to stoke class warfare with red meat speeches and an anti-elitist message; to those who claim she didn’t know Africa was a continent; to those McCain aides who say she is the reason they lost this election: Can I please remind you of one thing? You picked her.

It’s too bad we don’t know for sure the names of these people, because if we did perhaps we could ask them if the trouncing we got in 2006 was Gov. Palin’s fault, too.
Oh, and I agree with others who are saying McCain should step out front and center to defend her from these reports.
