Fox News is now throwing Nicolle Wallace, a senior advisor to McCain-Palin, under the bus. You might recall that I loved Ms. Wallace’s statement about being thrown under the bus:“If someone wants to throw me under the bus, my personal belief is that the most graceful thing to do is to lie there.”
I even more enjoyed her interview today with Ana Marie Cox:Again, this campaign may do me in.
Why do you say that?
There’s obviously an organized campaign to lay blame for things at my feet and I’m not going to engage before the campaign ends. I have a very long relationship with Fox News, and the notion that someone would call me a coward on the air and accuse me of putting $150,000 on my credit card without a single person calling and checking with me suggests that something is going on.

I may not share her enthusiasm for her ticket, but I kind of love her style and admire her class.
This article sheds interesting light on the charade:
But Wallace didn’t buy the clothes, put the clothes on her credit card, or go to Saks and Neiman Marcus, sources on the McCain campaign say.
And plenty of people on the McCain campaign are mystified as to how the $150,000 charges were racked up.
Moreover, McCain campaign sources say, Palin has developed quite a reputation on the campaign trail for shopping.
