Just as Hillary had the roll call rules re-written, just for her, so does Sarah Palin get “special treatment”
AP reported gleefuly:
"John McCain got a call from Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was on the phone to Barack Obama, and to his Democratic running mate, Joe Biden. Nobody called Sarah Palin."
Funny, Laura Bush used to say “W” is for Woman” I guess not “that woman” again.
Insisting it was not a snub, the excuse was
"Asked why Palin didn’t warrant a briefing, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters: “If you hadn’t noticed, she’s a governor, not a senator or congressman.”
Geez, I am old enough to remember the days when the saying was Governors not senators become presidents.
Twists the knife AP:
"Presumably Palin is an important political figure too. And, like Biden, she has a son currently serving in Iraq who would be directly affected by the so-called Status of Forces, or SOFA, agreement."
And suddenly, this acronym became familiar. We find this interesting detail from the article
"The administration had wanted a deal by August, but talks bogged down over questions of Iraqi sovereignty and U.S. insistence of broad legal protections for soldiers and contractors."
Bogged down, huh? Could that be that “Iraqgate” the Bushies covered so fast for Obama?
Was it really Iraqis or Obama that bogged down the deal?
I wouldn’t know, I am a girl.
