“If you could combine Meg Whitman and Sarah Palin, you’d have an incredible candidate”
Fred Barnes is an American conservative political commentator. He is the executive editor of the news publication The Weekly Standard, co-host with Mort Kondracke of "The Beltway Boys" on the Fox News Channel.
Indian Wells — … At the GOP confab was Fred Barnes — the Fox News, “Beltway Boys” TV pundit/exec editor of the conservative bible The Weekly Standard. The Meg Whitman folks are passing around a flattering profile Barnes did of her in May and Fred is the keynoter at lunch today.
So what does Fred think of the story du jour — that Meg’s voting record wasn’t just spotty, but as the Sac Bee tells us, fairly non-existent for the past 27 years, no matter where she lived. The Washington Post editorialized about it Saturday, so this one may have some legs.

In the wake of Sarah Palin’s resignation, even conservative magazine editors are getting tired of her relentless anti-media shtick. Charles Krauthammer said Monday on Fox News that her complaints have a “whining quality.” Fred Barnes of the “Weekly Standard” agreed:
“There is a way to deal with the press. Look at the way Ronald Reagan did. He didn’t attack the press. He teased them. He made fun of them. He jokes about them, embarrassed them. It was great. People loved it and it didn’t have that edge, that whiny edge that you always want to avoid.”

GOP vice presidential candidate Alaska Governor Sarah Palin
As previously discussed here on the Sarah Palin Truth Squad in Mean Girl: Sarah Palin Has a Way of Using “Old Boys” – Then Dumping Them When They Become Inconvenient as well as Barracuda Sarah: Palin’s Resentments of the Educated Started in Wasilla, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has a clearly documented history of manipulating people to gain their friendship and support for her personal and political agendas. Then when Gov. Palin no longer needs those benefactors to advance her purposes she tosses them under the nearest bus and climbs over their bloodied careers while marching off in search of fresh prey.
