Memo to Steve Schmidt: Accusations must be backed up with evidence

Steve Schmidt, a top McCain strategist, accused The New York Times of being "totally, 150 percent, in the tank for the Democratic candidate" Barack Obama.

I know this kind of media bashing works. I come from a family that believes this crap. But, my God, is this the best the McCain camp has? I know it has been a bad week for the senator but please try a little harder.

Tucker Bounds needs to be let go before he has an aneurysm, Steve Schmidt needs to start providing some evidence for his claims and Palin needs to hold a press conference. Is that too much to ask?

Republicans are really bad at losing. They cannot accept that their ideas are stale and their concepts flawed. So what do they do? They blame the media. They always have and they always will. It's in their blood. And it would be really funny in a sad sort of way if it were not for the fact that it works.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Schmidt is also trying to blunt something potentially devastating that has yet to be revealed. Call it a hunch, an Alaskan size hunch. Only time will tell.
