by Deb Cupples | Today, The Politico ran a story entitled "Palin Story Sparks Family Feud," which is about a recent Vanity Fair story that reportedly "has touched off a blistering exchange of insults among high-profile Republicans over last year’s GOP ticket – tearing open fresh wounds about leaks surrounding Palin and revealing for the first time some of the internal wars that paralyzed the campaign in its final days."
What dramatic, attention-grabbing words: "blistering," "insults," "wars." But is there really a fresh story here?
A year ago, numerous big Republicans were downright distraught over Candidate McCain's bizarre choice of a running mate. Whenever Ms. Palin did a televised debate, you could hear the thunderous sound of Republican operatives, nationwide, simultaneously slapping their own foreheads silly when Ms. Palin attempted to address issues of national importance.
