Stand up and speak out, Sen. McCain!

Dear Sen. McCain:

Sir, you must be aware that the media has been on fire passing along vicious rumors from unattributed sources within your campaign attacking Sarah Palin. You are the only one who can put an end to this. You chose your campaign staff, and you chose your running mate. To paraphrase Harry Truman, the buck stops with you.

If you are indeed the stand-up guy I believe you to be, please, investigate, get the facts, call a press conference, name names (as you promised to do with any of your colleagues who introduced pork-laden bills), tell the truth and put this rumor-mongering to rest.

I know you are aware of the fact that Gov. Palin did quite a lot to build enthusiasm for your campaign. I’ve heard you acknowledge such in public. You asked her to run with you, and she gave it all she had. Don’t you think you owe it to her and all of those who supported the McCain-Palin ticket to clear all of this speculation up? If it is allowed to continue, it will only serve to harm your reputation, Gov. Palin’s and the reputations of those in your campaign who acted honorably.

Sarah Palin and your supporters stood up for you when you asked them to. Now it’s your turn, Senator. Stand up! Speak out!

Sincerely,

  • JP
