"I have absolutely no intention of engaging in any of the negativity because this has been all positive for me for what I believe in, the values that I represent and the progress that I wanna see America be able to make," Palin said when asked about post-election finger-pointing. "Just absolutely no time for the pettiness. And thatís kinda just the way Iím wired. I donít have time for that."
"This is an historic moment. Barack Obama has been elected president," Palin added. "And God bless Barack Obama and his beautiful family and the new administration coming in. It is time that we all pulled together and worked together and Americaís going to reach her destiny."
Trivia answers can be learned. Character is innate. I'd say that the people who've been piling on her, not just for the last two days but the last two months, should be ashamed of themselves, but clearly they're not capable of such.

Via Ace, a tasty pile of shinola straight from the stovetop of disgruntled McCain staffers. It's too cute by half, as is the detail about NAFTA; they might as well have tossed in a story about her having to guess who's buried in Grantís tomb. To believe it, you have to believe she figured out a way to become governor of Alaska while somehow lacking the mental power to piece together which three nations might be involved in the North American Free Trade Agreement. Diehard 'Cuda-haters like Sullivan will, of course, be more than happy to oblige.
P.P.P.S. Schmidt and Wallace: Account for yourselves.
"If they're an unnamed source, then that says it all. I won't comment on anybody's gossip, or allegations that are based on anonymous sources. That's kind of a small, evidently bitter type of person who would anonymously charge something foolish like that, that I perhaps didn't know an answer to a question."Posted by Jim Treacher at November 6, 2008 03:53 AM
