Not only is the press being kept away from Her Royal Highness, Sarah Palin, Precious Flower Who Must Be Revered At All Times, but John McCain is running scared as well:
This is what American politics has come down to: a candidate whose campaign has devolved to ads filled with lies and smears, and staged rallies filled with adoring sheeple. Baaaah. This isn't an election, it's a lesson in how to run a propaganda snowjob in a third world country.
Today marks the four-week anniversary since McCain held his last press conference (8/13 in Birmingham, MI) and three weeks since his last public town hall meeting (8/20 in Las Cruces, NM).
McCain’s new campaign strategy: staged rallies with thousands of supporters. Since announcing Sarah Palin as his VP choice on August 29, McCain’s has appeared at 11 rallies with his new running mate where both members of the ticket delivered a 10-15 minute stump speech.
