Comparison test

All along, I've said that the best strategy for the McCain campaign in the Sarah Palin rollout would have been to put Palin into a press conference, rather than to hide her from reporters for weeks while sending "campaign spokesmen" out to defend her. Let's put that idea to the test, shall we?

You can make up your own mind, but as for me, I don't ever want to see the name "Tucker Bounds" associated with the Republican Party again. That boy just needs to find himself a new line of work.

Of course it wasn't that at all. I swear the whole thing was driven by petty jealousy and snobbery. Shameful.
