Now it all comes out. Fox News reporter Carl Cameron just unburdened himself of some behind-the-scenes campaign dish. (It was “off the record” till after Election Day.)
Cameron was told by Team McCain insiders that Gov. Sarah Palin “didn’t understand that Africa [is] a continent” with many nations, not a country unto itself. (Fox News anchor Shep Smith couldn’t believe it!)
Oh yes yes yes! Tell us more, tell us more!
Palin, according to Cameron’s sources, was also “hard to control emotionally.” She would throw temper tantrums after reading negative stuff in the press.
Wow. And some Republicans think Sarah Palin is the Great White Hope for 2012?
The video is below.
UPDATE (11/05/08): Carl Cameron also appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight, and he fleshed out his earlier report of Sarah Palin’s ignorance about Africa.
Palin had asked campaign staff members “if South Africa wasn’t just part of the country” of Africa, “as opposed to [being] a country in the continent.”
