Palin calls Republican campaign staffers “mean-spirited,” “immature,” “unprofessional,” and “jerks”

Finally, Sarah Palin got something right. She called the GOP operatives what they are:

“So, no, I think that if there are allegations based on questions or comments that I made in debate prep about Nafta, and about the continent versus the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context,” Ms. Palin said. “And that’s cruel and it’s mean-spirited, it’s immature, it’s unprofessional, and those guys are jerks, if they came away with it taking things out of context and then tried to spread something on national news. It is not fair and not right.”

I can think of a few other attributes for Republicans, but Sarah hit a few key ones.

I’m intrigued by the strong defense of Palin by Randy Scheunemann, who either did or didn’t get fired in the last week of the campaign:

Randy Scheunemann — a foreign policy adviser to the campaign who some factions claimed was fired in the final week, but others said had not been — said that some of the claims about her were false, and ultimately damaging to Mr. McCain.

“The people that are spreading these lies refuse to go on the record,” Mr. Scheunemann said. “They obviously have no loyalty to John McCain or to the person John McCain chose to be his vice president.”

Throughout the campaign, Scheunemann proved to be one of the biggest dirt-bags on the McCain team. He also emerged as Palin’s top defender. He was supposed to be in charge of foreign policy. If he loved Palin so much, how did he let her go on the prank call with the President of France? The Palin team claims that the call was on her schedule for days. No one told the foreign policy expert? Scheunemann should have been fired for that.
