Yesterday, Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds; appeared on CNN for an interview with Campbell Brown. Brown was tough on Bounds, refusing to let him spout typical campaign talking points. She repeatedly pressed him on Palin’s foreign policy experience and qualifications, asking him to name one decision that she made as commander-in-chief of the Alaskan National Guard. Bounds was unable to do so.
Today, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer revealed that because of that tough interview, the McCain campaign has canceled the senator’s appearance on Larry King Live tonight:
The McCain campaign said it believed that exchange was over the line and as a result the interview scheduled for Larry King Live with Sen. McCain was pulled. CNN does not believe that Campbell’s interview was over the line. We are committed to fair coverage of both sides of this historic election.I can fill in a little more if I may I saw the interview and I think that Think Progress has it also, what she was doing or trying to do is simply hold the standard that the McCain camp has laid down itself during this champaign, in other words I'm sure you all have saw the adds, McCain constantly bickering about the experience of Barack Obama, but see they like to set the standard but when it goes to standing by it, well thats a different story and living in a state close to Russia giving one national security experience to me is sort of a lame statement in itself, I lived by the Y-12 plant in Oak Ridge for a few years but I don't see how that would enlighten me to nuclear physics. If McCain has this many problems it would be the best for him never be to debate with Obama, there he won't be able to throw down the ball and run home crying foul.
