Enough With the Umbrage

I was on a conference call this afternoon with several McCain surrogates where they were highlighting Carol Folwer’s idiocy. Someone on the call (I think it was campaign spokesman Jeff Sadowsky) said that Obama should distance himself from Fowler’s remarks.

Keeping what Lindsey Graham aptly called the Democrats’ “meltdown” over Sarah Palin in the spotlight is good for the McCain campaign. But the way to handle this sort of thing (and this includes the lipstick kerfuffle) is not to demand apologies and denunciations. A better response would be mockery, of the “look at how crazy they’ve gone” variety, or perhaps a Reaganite “there you go again.” In their current posture Team McCain just sounds whiny.
