The McCain campaign is rallying around Sarah Palin:
Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn suggested that Palin’s work on the parent-teacher association of her son’s school gave her useful experience for the vice-presidency.
“Every woman in this room knows that if you can handle being a room mother … a PTA chairwoman, Girl Scout cookie mom, there’s a lot of things you have the ability, the organisational skills, to handle. She transferred those leadership skills to the political arena.”
Damning with faint praise.
This is out-front and honest: Mike Murphy and Peggy Noonan talking about the Palin nomination on hot mikes. Money quote: “It’s over” – Noonan.
