The impending doom of the McAngry/You Betcha ticket is fracturing their campaign, as we noted on October 25. McAngry staff and You Betcha staff are openly sniping at each others' leader anonymously, with a top McAngry advisor now saying that You Betcha "is a whack job." Why? Because she supported the secessionist Alaska Independence Party? Wanted rape victims to pay for their own rape kits? Believes creationism should be taught in public schools? Thinks she's absolutely qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency when 22 months ago, she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska? That only puts her square in the middle of the far-right, whack job Rethug base. So, more accurately, she's Queen of the Whack Jobs.
