Politico's Simon: McCain Picked Palin But Won't Vote For Rice - 'That's Absurd'

The liberal media cheerleading for United Nations ambassador Susan Rice to become Secretary of State despite her repeated claims that September's attack on our consulate in Libya were a reaction to an anti-Muslim video are becoming nauseating.

On PBS's Inside Washington Friday, Politico's Roger Simon actually said, "John McCain named Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat away from the presidency but he won’t vote for Susan Rice ’cause he can’t trust her. That’s absurd" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

ROGER SIMON, POLITICO: This is such a cynical political attack by these guys.

GORDON PETERSON, HOST: Are they trying to turn it into Watergate?

SIMON: They’re trying to turn it into anything. John McCain named Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat away from the presidency but he won’t vote for Susan Rice ’cause he can’t trust her. That’s absurd.

Actually, what's absurd is bringing Palin into this discussion.

The fact of the matter is our U.N. ambassador made false statements to the American people concerning the deaths of four of our citizens.

If she were a Republican, she would have already been so eviscerated by the media that the president wouldn't dare appointing her.

But because she's a Democrat, the press are circling the wagons to do whatever they can to get her this position irrespective of any misdeeds she may have done.

How typical.
