Hot mic fun: Noonan, Murphy trash Palin on MSNBC
Conservative commentators think they are off the air; hear what they really think about Palin! Delish — with a rough transcript:
Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state government work. Engler, Whitman, Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. And these guys, this is all how you want to (inaudible) this race. You know, just run it up. And it’s not gonna work.
Noonan: It’s over.
Murphy: Still, McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.
Noonan: I saw Kay this morning
Todd: They’re all bummed out. I mean, is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?
Murphy: She’s never been comfortable.
Noonan: The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives and (inaudible) the picture.
Murphy: Yeah, but what’s the narrative?
Noonan: Every time the Republicans do that because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at and they blow it.
Murphy: You know what’s really the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism
Todd: And as you called it gimmicky.
Murphy: … and this is cynicism.
This is bombshell stuff, simply because any punditry out of these folks from now on that doesn’t correlate with what they said during this hot mic video can be called out as bullsh*t.
So what are the oddsmakers saying about when McCain dumps his veep nom?
