Classy Campaigning

Originally published at BunkBlog. You can comment here or there.

In counterpoint to my skepticism surrounding Sarah Palin, check out the Obama campaign’s reaction:

“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency,” Adrianne Marsh, a spokeswoman for Obama, said in a written statement.

That’s just petty and inaccurate.  She’s the former mayor of a town of 9,000 much as Obama is a former community organizer. Ignoring the present position is a slimy trick one usualy associates with devotees of Karl Rove.  Shame.

Obama: "Sometimes campaigns have a tendency to kneejerk anything." He insisted people listen to his reaction (congratulatory) instead.

Sure seems that the candidates don't have a lot of control of their messages this year. McCain's campaign (Holtz-Eakin specifically) has actually said that the candidate doesn't speak for the campaign (paraphrasing) at times. Nutty.

Agree that this could have been handled better.
