Turns out that Mitt Romney isn't the only failed candidate serving up somerevisionist campaign history this week! On Friday, Sarah Palin went on Greta Van Susteren's televisual shouting festival and revealed that during the 2008 campaign, "elitists" in John McCain "banned" her from flying her freak flag and talking about Barack Obama's connections to Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, two people who were never mentioned during the campaign.

In the eight-minute segment that was ostensibly about Barack Obama's "second term scandals" (IRSghazi, mostly), Palin contended that Obama was given a free ride by the media, and that even members of the McCain campaign staff went along with efforts to "destroy the whistleblowers" on Wright and Ayers:

"Though I was during the campaign running for VP, I was banned from talking about Jeremiah Wright and Obama's friend, Bill Ayers, who is the character that he befriended and kicked off his political campaign in the guy's living room.

Couldn't talk about that. Couldn't talk about Obama's lack of knowledge and job experience and the things that he said, like America had 57 states, things like that.

In the campaign -- Greta, this is important for Americans to understand -- I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists, those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain's campaign at the time, said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things."

Heaven knows we never heard about any of those items on the Wingnut Hit Parade! McCain's elitists were apparently the same ones who vetted the vice presidential candidate, considering how well they prevented her repeated references to Obama "palling around with terrorists." And Obama's lack of experience! Why, if only someone had brought THAT up! Still, it's kind of fun to imagine the White House dynamics if McCain had been sworn in. He'd have a Veep who's a seething bucket of resentment and spite... though now that we think about it, maybe that's just a job requirement, and Joe Biden is just doing it wrong.
