Conservative critics Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy bemoan the Palin Pick off-camera as “cynical” and “political bullshit” on MSNBC. Beware of the hot mike! They’re not just getting Jesse this year!
The following is from Ben Smith’s Blog at Politico:
After a segment with NBC’s Chuck Todd ended today, Republican consultant Mike Murphy and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan were caught on a live mike ridiculing the choice of Sarah Palin.
“It’s over,” said Noonan, who then responded to a question of whether Palin is the most qualified Republican woman McCain could have chosen.
“The most qualified? No. I think they went for this — excuse me — political bullsh** about narratives,” she said. “Every time Republicans do that … because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at and they blow it.”
Murphy chimed in:
“The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.”
