Blaming Eve?: McCain Staffers Are Already Starting to Direct Recriminations at Sarah Palin for “Blowing” the Election for McCain

Today at Politico:

Anger among Republicans who see Palin as a star and as a potential future leader has boiled over because, they say, they see other senior McCain aides preparing to blame her in the event he is defeated.

“These people are going to try and shred her after the campaign to divert blame from themselves,” a McCain insider said, referring to McCain’s chief strategist, Steve Schmidt, and to Nicolle Wallace, a former Bush aide who has taken a lead role in Palin’s campaign.

Blame Palin for McCain’s failure to adequately vet her?

Not nice.

Sounds a little like Adam blaming Eve for biting a bad apple.
