From the Paul campaign:
“A spokesperson for the Tea Party-endorsed candidate informed NBC News late Friday afternoon that an exhausted Paul was canceling his interview on Sunday's Meet The Press.From the O’Donnell campaign:
“Late Friday night, her campaign canceled saying O’Donnell was “exhausted” and had to return to Delaware. Saturday morning O’Donnell called me and said this: “I got triple-booked. I had been invited to go to church and then a picnic. I have to keep my priorities to Delaware voters.”Is it just me, or does anyone else smell amateur hour here? For example, her campaign had the same canned excuse for running away from the national media as Rand Paul’s: His cancellation on MTP was only the 3rd guest in 62 years. Do you suppose Christine O’Donnell is the fourth? If not, was it another Tea Party/Republican extremist? Just a wild guess.
Joked O’Donnell to an audience of zombie supporters:
“How many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school?” [Not dabbling in witchcraft. Hmm … I guess I was sheltered in high school.] “There's been no witchcraft since.” [Which begs the question: Exactly what witchcraft did O’Donnell partake of — are we to expect new revelations?] “If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now.”Um Christine, I’ve got news for you: Karl Rove did endorse you the very next day. His conversion was so dramatic, even for a pathological liar like Rove, that we wondered in passing if he was under some kind of spell!
