CNN anchor Cambell Brown has some harsh words for the McCain aides who are dishing the dirt about Sarah Palin to the press: You picked her.

I’m thrilled the Republicans are airing their dirty laundry in public. Journalism is the first draft of history and if it’s true that Sarah Palin thought Africa was one big exotic country, that’s something we ought to know, going forward.

On the other hand, Republican aides lie a lot. So, we should probably take some of the more extreme claims about Sarah Palin’s ignorance with a grain of salt. 

I find it ironic that McCain aides are backbiting Sarah Palin for her "temper tantrums." When John McCain pitches a fit, he’s a fightin’ maverick. When Palin gets mad, she’s a rogue diva.
