I'm almost feeling sorry for Sarah Palin..

Readers here know how I feel about Caribou Barbie, that she is a miserable, mean-spirited and corrupt person ill-equipped seemingly for any job she has held and certainly the one she most recently sought.

So why would I possibly feel sorry for her? Because I have never seen such callous and classless attacks on a running mate coming from within the camp of the head of the ticket.

OK, I admit that it is funny that she doesn't understand either North America or Africa, but memo to the "staffers" who are dumping on her. You are putting yourselves in a very untenable position. If it's true, I assume you are trying to scapegoat her for McCain's drubbing, but that only makes you and your boss look like mega-chumps for picking her. If it's not true (doubtful, but possible) you have committed actionable defamation.

The word that comes to mind is "schadenfreude."

This is just pathetic.

The Republican party isn't just recovering from a lost election. They aren't just looking for direction. They aren't just searching for the next person to lead them forward.

Nope. First they must destroy everyone associated with the loss.

Smart tactic, if you're a phoenix.

To re-phrase: Rugby players eat their dead... Republicans don't wait.
