Wingnuts Just Say NO To Guilt By Association For McCain And Palin

If you're a wingnut attacking Obama for his past ties with other people that's just fine, but when confronted with controversial association on their side and they just say NO. We won't talk about it because it's irrelevant to us. The same Michael Steele that I ran into the airport in Denver moments after McCain picked Palin as his running mate and who said he loved the choice was on Hannity and Colmes and really looked like a fool when confronted with the many screwy and dangerous associations McCain and Palin have made over the years. The segment strayed away from the basis of the segment and became a usual FOX hit job on Obama.

Colmes:...but doesn't it concern you about the links to Saddam Hussein to the McCain campaign? The lobbyists on the McCain campaign, the secessionists Party that Sarah Palin's buddy-buddy with? The fact that they hate America? Doesn't that concern you?

Steele: Who you asking?

Colmes: Michael.

Steele: No.

Colmes: Why Not?

Steele: Because it doesn't. Because you asked the question.

You're concerned about Barack Obama associations but not these.

Steele: You get to the point Alan where you do the tit for tat and the bottom line is whether Sarah Palin did this that or the other thing is irrelevant. Barack Obama has not come out and fully explained or dealt into these issues. That's why we're still talking about them.

Colmes: Neither has the other side but the same standards have to apply.

Steele: The reality of it is, if you're going to raise it then we'll talk about it.

Sarah Palin's ties to the AIP are irrelevant because what, Michael? And he wouldn't answer the question at first. Anyway, I found this little snippet interesting for what it reveals about the Steeles of the Republican Party.
