Barack McGovern wants to drop Eagleton from the ticket

The only problem is that he's trying to dump the GOP's wildly successful vice presidential nominee, not his lackluster one:

In memos, e-mails and phone calls this week, Obama campaign officials have urged surrogates and allies to mention Republicans who are "nervous" about the Palin pick and to link those worries to George McGovern's aborted vice presidential pick of Thomas Eagleton in 1972, according to three Democratic surrogates.


On Wednesday, the campaign's chief surrogate wranglers distributed a three page compilation of  quotes from Republicans concerned about the Palin pick. (See the text after the jump.)  One surrogate said he had been urged to bring up the example of Eagleton in order to seed the idea that McCain might consider dropping him from the ticket.
How tin-eared does the Obama campaign have to be to think that McCain would drop Palin! after she spoke to 40 million people after being an "unknown" less than a week before?

How dumb would McCain have to be to drop a vice presidential candidate who is more popular than himself and Obama?

I love the smell of desperation in the smells like...victory

All you people wondering why nothing but country gets played at GOP events?

Yeah, that'd be because everything else is produced by Marxists and they won't let the GOP use it, Nashville is the only place that you can get the okay.  This is why I always thought the McCain campaign was smart for just using songs and clips without seeking permission, get the ad or clip out there, then let the media carry it while you take it down officially when the inevitable cease order hits your desk. 

The Wilson sisters have already sent the cease letter to the PALIN!/mccain campaign over the use of their song "Barracuda."  And no, they wouldn't have given permission to use it, either.  I'll give the GOP credit, they're not real net savvy, but they did learn one trick from the intarwebs,

NRO disappointment: Palinmania edition!

They mostly liked her, but they thought the speech wasn't "wonky" enough

Yeah, I know, I'm shocked, too!

La Shawn Barber: Hey Bristol, give your baby up for adoption

Via Linc, we get this bit of weapons-grade stupidity,

I came to this conclusion before I found out Palin has a five-month-old infant (I believe mothers [and fathers, OK?] should raise their children) and a knocked up teenage age daughter (who ought to give up the baby for adoption to an older, married, two-parent family) or that she’s under investigation for ethics violations.

Hey La Shawn,
