Chris, it looks like the trashing of Sarah Palin continues with a guilt by association once removed with her soon to be released book’s ghost writer, Lynn Vincent.

But, what is with the name calling?

In the video clip below (from Meet the Press) even Mike Murphy, certainly not a fan of Sarah Palin is exasperated with Rachel Maddow, who should not be throwing any stones.

Go to around 7:50 of the above video for the discussion of Sarah Palin’s ghost writer and white supremacy associations

Here is the transcript from Meet the Press:
MR. MURPHY:  Yeah.  No, no, look, she has a constituency.  She’ll never be the nominee, I totally agree with David.  I agree with Steve Schmidt, it would be actually a disaster if she was the nominee.  I do wish my friend Steve felt that a year ago when a lot of people were asking John McCain to put her on the ticket.  But the truth is–and I’m going to agree with David here, too–the noisiest parts of kind of the conservative media machine have far less influence than the mainstream media machine that covers the Republican world thinks they do.  These radio guys can’t deliver a pizza, let alone a nomination.  And you can case study that out in the last election.  So I–the question is whether or not our party will learn, when we have a pretty good midterm victory due to Obama’s mistakes this time, that turning up the volume is not the reason that we’re going to do well, I believe, in the midterms. And the fact is to get all the way, there are a lot of things we have to do to modernize conservativism to be successful.

MS. MADDOW:  I, I do think that there’s a little bit of reckoning that needs to happen on the right for Sarah Palin’s success.  I mean, she was the vice presidential nominee, she is going to sell a kazillion books and she is the biggest brand name in Republican politics still right now.  And she’s chose–the person who’s writing her book, her last–the last person who she co-authored a book with was called “Donkey Cons” and it was co-authored with a guy who’s widely believed to be and I believe him to be a white supremacist. So she’s chosen Lynn Vincent, who’s written a book with a white supremacist, to write her book, and she’s the biggest name in Republican politics.

MR. MURPHY:  Oh, but, Rachel…

MS. MADDOW:  And you can dismiss her and say she’s not going to be the nominee, but I do think the right needs to sort of answer for what’s happened to conservatism.

MR. MURPHY:  But let me just say, I am a well-documented nonfan of Sarah Palin, at least as a national politician.  I don’t know her personally.  But that’s guilt by association stuff.  That’s the cable stuff.  That’s the problem.

MS. MADDOW:  But why would you–you can pick anybody to be your ghostwriter.

MR. MURPHY:  Sarah Palin’s a lot of things, but she’s not a white supremacist.  And…

MS. MADDOW:  You could–no, I don’t think she is.  But when you can pick anybody, why would she pick somebody who’s associated with the League of the South, who said that Americans are revolted by the idea of having a black sister-in-law.  I mean, she–this is who she picked to write her book.

MR. MURPHY:  Yeah, but there’s…

MS. MADDOW:  Why do you do that?

MR. MURPHY:  That’s sort of guilt by association stuff, which I don’t know and it can–I–check it out.

MS. MADDOW:  It’s guilt by choice.  It’s guilt by choice.

GREGORY:  OK.

MR. MURPHY:  It is, is so, so not important to the central questions in the country right now.  But that’s what cable TV has become, so I…

MS. MADDOW:  Sarah Palin’s popularity is a central question in the Republican Party right now.

GREGORY:  Quickly, E.J.

MS. MADDOW:  And you can make fun of her, but it doesn’t make it go away.

MR. DIONNE:  Forget guilt by association.  Governor Rick Perry may win a Republican primary because he talked about secession.  You haven’t had somebody win an election on secession since 1858.

MR. MURPHY:  Yeah.  E.J., I can tell you…

MR. DIONNE:  There’s a radical strain in the Republican Party.  It’s not guilt by association, it’s right out there.

MR. MURPHY:  Yeah, but look…

GREGORY:  All right, final thought here, Mike.

MR. MURPHY:  Professional political consultant, that one line which you’re deducing a complete definition of Perry from, who I oppose in that primary, is not the reason he’s going to win.

GREGORY:  All right, we’re going to have to leave it there.

This morning on the Early Today show there was another reference to Palin and ridiculed a celebrity auction of a Palin autographed Play Station.

What is with NBC News perverted fascination with Sarah Palin?

 It is becoming pathological as is Charles Johnson’s with Robert Stacy McCain.

  1. Reference for the RSM racism accusation:

    http://www.nypress.com/article-6776-that-other-times.html

    Note that this article simply includes quotes attributed to McCain but not referenced. Among them:

    “[T]he media now force interracial images into the public mind and a number of perfectly rational people react to these images with an altogether natural revulsion. The white person who does not mind transacting business with a black bank clerk may yet be averse to accepting the clerk as his sister-in-law, and THIS IS NOT RACISM, no matter what Madison Avenue, Hollywood and Washington tell us.”

    That’s a troubling quote, but the author of the linked article apparently can’t be bothered to provide a link to a place where I can read McCain’s words straight from the source.

    It’s also claimed that he’s a member of the League of the South, or former member.

    It seems to be a stretch to use RSM to discredit Sarah Palin, which is ultimately what this is about. The point of it is that RSM and Sarah Palin both used Lynn Vincent as their coauthor for recent books. Ultimately, I agree that Palin should show more care in vetting people that she works with. But it’s a stretch to make her out to be a racist based on a 2nd level association.

    This is Johnson’s modus operandi.

  2. Hmmmm.

    Guilt by association eh?

    Ummmm. Any instances of this during the 2008 Presidential election ignored by the Lefties in the media? Rev. Wright? Ayers?

    Or how about more mainstream “former” member of the KKK and Democrat? Hon. (assumed) Robert Byrd.
