The end of the US Republic as we know it

Friday, September 5, 2008

This has to be seen to be believed. In the clip below, the person being asked the question, Nicolle Wallace, is a former White House Communications Director who now acts as a senior strategist for the McCain campaign. Wallace is asked about the policy of protecting Sarah Palin, John McCain’s candidate for Vice President, from the press – preventing anyone from ever asking her questions and only wheeling her out to make scripted speeches.

And so ends the great conversation – between people and their politicians, mediated by the press – that defines modern democracy. Shucks.
