I’m not entirely sure who Obama spokesman Bill Burton is or what he’s all about, but talk about making a classless, disgusting statement regarding the choice of Governor Sarah Palin to be McCain’s running mate. From the folks at Politico:
Barack Obama’s campaign is blasting John McCain for putting “the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
The scathing description of Sarah Palin, from Obama spokesman Bill Burton, comes as Democrats scramble to gather a response to a selection that nobody in the political world expected.
Senator Obama needs to really re-evaluate having someone on his staff that is going to immediately attack Palin – even before her selection is official! And talk about the dumbest man on earth – does Burton realize that if he wants to start a battle over Palin’s experience that he immediately justifies all of the Republican comments about Obama’s gratuitous lack of experience?
Dumb, dumb move on behalf of the Obama campaign. Their best bet at this point is to retract that stupid statement from Burton and run a video similar to McCain’s video from last night with a simple, “Congratulations” message to Governor Palin.
It’s amazing how you can go from supporting the Obama campaign one night to hearing a ridiculous comment like Burton’s and be completely disgusted with them.
