Your Most Obsequious Servant

From ABC’s Political Punch:

Rick Davis, campaign manager for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., just told Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace that McCain running mate Gov. Sarah Palin won’t subject herself to any tough questions from reporters “until the point in time when she’ll be treated with respect and deference.”

Davis assailed the way the media had discussed Palin and her family in the last week and said the campaign would wait until a less hostile media environment.

So when will she subject herself to questions?

“When we think it’s time and when she feels comfortable doing it,” Davis said.

I’m just imagining what the reaction would be if Hillary Clinton had ever said that. Game over.

I’d love to be proven wrong, but the sad fact is that the reporters will go along with this.
