(h/t CSPANjunkie)

As McCain's campaign is falling apart, so are the right-wing talking heads. This is a sickness that runs deep. Case in point: Republican strategist Brad Blakeman actually attacks Obama for visiting his sick grandmother in a campaign plane. These people have no conscience.

Schuster: Brad, if it's so important not to be spending money like a drunken sailor and I haven't asked you this but I'm curious to hear your view of the the amount of money that was spent, 150,000 was spent on Sarah Palin's clothes at high end stores like Saks and Neiman. I don't even think you shop at Saks and Neiman.

Blakeman: No I don't, but let me tell you this. You know what the outrage is today? Is Barack Obama taking a 767 campaign plane to go visit his grandma.

Forget about the energy that is wasted, what about the hundreds of thousands of dollars to take a private trip when this guy should be humping his bags on a commercial plane or taking a smaller plane. Taking a 767 of campaign money from people who could least afford it is more of an outrage in my opinion.

Shuster: That is one of the most valiant tries I have ever seen in this entire debate about Sarah Palin's clothing allowance.

Blakeman: It's a fact!

Shuster: Nice try, Brad.

How was he supposed to get there, walk? He is under tight security, remember, Brad? Really, they will say and do anything at this point. They have no arguments to make so they dream up garbage like this. America is really taking a good look at these people I think for the first time and it's ain't pretty. Keep it up, Brad. You only help our case against conservatives.

Huff Post:

Responding to a question about how John McCain could square his opposition to wasteful spending with the RNC shelling out over $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin, said that the real outrage is Barack Obama "taking a 767 campaign plane to go visit Grandma."
