Gotta watch out for those live mics.
Mike Murphy and Peggy Noonan with live microphones after a chuck Todd interview:http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/9/3/161...2509/510/579198
Murphy: Um, you know, because, I come out of the blue swing state governor world. Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, I mean, and these guys, this is all like how you win a Texas Race race, just run it up, and it's not gonna work.
Noonan: It's Over.
Murphy: Still, McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech and do himself some good.
Todd: Don't you think this Palin pick is insulting to Kay Baily Hutchinson
Noonan: Saw kay this morning
Todd: She's(?) never looked comfortable up there..
Murphy: all bummed out.
Todd: I mean, is she really the most qualified woman they could turn to?
Noonan: The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives amd youthfulness and the picture
Todd: Yeah, but what's the narrative
Murphy: I totally agree.
Noonan: Every time Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and it's not what they're good at, they blow it.
Murphy: You know what's the worst thing about it, the greatest of McCain is no cynicism, and..
Murphy: This is cynical.
Todd: And as you called it, gimmicky.
