    A former campaign adviser to John McCain named Martin Eisenstadt has outed himself as the proud source of the "Sarah Palin doesn't know Africa is a continent" story. The New Republic and MSNBC have picked up the Eisenstadt scoop. But it's not at all clear that Eisenstadt exists.

    Boy will FoxNews have egg on its face when this story breaks further. The damage to Palin has already been done though. The only people who want Palin to run are 69% of Republicans. No independents, no Democrats. Plus if she went one on one with Romney, Romney would destroy her. I'm still upset I never got to see a Romney-Biden debate.

    So, someone who might not even exist has "outed himself" as the doofus who started the rumor about Palin? This story gets more and more bizarre all of the time.

    That someone from within the McCain camp would start rumors about his VP pick to make her look ridiculous is bizarre enough.

    Now, someone is claiming "credit" for the story, but that person may be fictitious?

    Speak for all of the Independant and Democratic voters do you? I know MANY of both who would say you are wrong. As a matter of fact,I am an independant and I like Sarah Palin. BTW if it comes out that Romney's staffers trashed Palin...he is toast with a good portion of Republicans. Try getting out more and reading deverse opinions once in awhile would you.:cuckoo:

    A lot can change in four years. Why wouldn't Democrats want her to run? Wouldn't they see her a sure loss?

    The same was said about Biden, and see how that turned out? She held her own, considering the circumstances. Give her four years, and she'll be pretty keen on the issues she was clueless on this year.
