Palin Sequestered From Press?

Friday, September 05, 2008

Sequestered? Several blogs are reporting the McCain campaign is putting the word out she will not be available to the press between now and the election. Really? Here's what I think this is really about: expectations. This is so Rovian and transparent. Once the MSM has had a while to raise hell and enough time passes to give Palin enough room to take a crash course in McCain economics and foreign policy a surprise appearance will be announced either on FOXNews or a print interview with the Washington Times/NRO/WSJ and she will easily clear a very low bar and everyone in the MSM will tell us how wonderful she conducted herself. I swear Rove can make Machiavelli look like a member of the Peace Corps.
