The Train Wreck of A Campaign That Just Won't Die! (or, John and Sarah's search for the "Truthiness Leaker")

During the 2008 Presidential race, the McCain Campaign (with the personal approval ofJohn McCain and Sarah Palin) conducted an intensive internal search of the emails of top campaign staffers.

They wanted to find out who had been leaking "damaging information" snippets of truth about Palin to reporters.

This doesn't surprise me at all.

Unfortunately, while this never-ending campaign post mortem is fun and interesting, it serves no real purpose other than keeping Sara Palin's name in the headlines.

As the saying goes, "the only bad press is an obituary."
