In a Monday interview with Good Morning Britain, Sarah Palin complained that she was not invited to join the funeral of her running mate in the 2008 general election.
“I was kind of surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral,” she said, calling it an “unnecessary step” and adding that the McCain family “didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others.”
She then said that it was not just her, “there were good people in our campaign back in 2008 who were very very loyal to Senator McCain,” who also were not invited to the funeral. Palin added it was “all weird” and “kind of a gut punch.”
Another quote from Raw Story:
“It made sense to me and my supporters why John McCain did tap me,” Palin said. “But, yeah, once getting out there on that national stage and realizing that there are so many snakes in politics, they are so many snakes in the Republican party who were running the show and allowing me to get clobbered.”
“They were looking for someone to blame for their really crappy type of campaign that they ran. I was a scapegoat.”
