Sarah Palin Slams McCain Aides as Cowards and Jerks

Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin fired back at John McCain’s gossipy aides who alleged it was her fault their candidate lost the bid for the Presidency. Palin called them cowards and jerks. 'It’s cruel, it’s mean-spirited, immature and un-professional and those guys are jerks…' she said.

Alaska’s Gov. Sarah Palin fired back at John McCain’s gossipy aides who alleged it was her fault their candidate lost the bid for the presidency. Palin called them cowards and jerks.

“It’s cruel, it’s mean-spirited, immature and un-professional and those guys are jerks…” Palin said in a CNN interview. She added that the aides who slammed her were "cowards" for leaking lies to the press.

A handful of McCain campaign aides immediately began to pin McCain’s loss on Palin following President Elect Barack Obama’s triumph on Tuesday. Aides lambasted Palin about the $150,000 the Republican National Committee blew on Palin’s wardrobe and about the embarrassing prank call a Canadian comedian made convincing the Governor that he was the president of France, according to the New York Times.

But that was just the beginning. Fox News quoted unnamed McCain officials as saying Palin had no clue that Africa was a continent and not merely a country and that she had no idea which countries comprise the North American Free Trade Agreement.

I remember having a discussion with a couple of debate preppers,” Palin told CNN. “So if it came from one of those debate preppers, you know, that’s curious. But having a discussion about Nafta -- not, ‘Oh my goodness, I don’t know who is a part of Nafta.’"

“So, no, I think that if there are allegations based on questions or comments that I made in debate prep about Nafta, and about the continent versus the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context,” Palin said.

Senior McCain aides attempted to quiet rumors of discord within his campaign and the allegations the unnamed sources made against Palin. Nicolle Wallace, a senior McCain campaign aide who worked with Palin, defended her Friday on NBC’s Today.

“She is perhaps the most un-diva politician I’ve ever seen,” Ms. Wallace said. “The only thing I’ve ever seen her ask for is a diet soda.”
