True Colors

Over at the Red State (go there!) Erick Erickson has written an unbelieveable post about a back stabbing McCain staffer who sabotaged Sara Palin's vice presidential campaign.

It was Palin's own press manager, Nicolle Wallace, appointed by McCain, who apparently provided the media with personal attack information. Wallace is now quoted as saying:

Obama deserves our thanks for letting Republicans root for him, as well. He has created a space within his wide net of support for those of us who fought for John McCain’s candidacy by honoring the McCains at a dinner the night before his inauguration and by listening to McCain’s ideas on national security, climate change, and government reform.

The Obamas have also returned the civility and warmth directed at them by president and Mrs. Bush in a way that sets this transition apart from others in recent history. This generosity of spirit has had a ripple effect throughout Republican circles. Two former senior aides to President George W. Bush said to me over the weekend, “I expect him [President Obama] to be there for eight years.”

This is truly sickening. How in the world can we trust the Republicans for anything anymore?
