"An absolute nightmare"

From Caffeinated Thoughts, A Little Perspective on Steve Schmidt:

...Let me give you some perspective from Iowa. Here is what I learned from two former Iowa McCain/Palin Campaign staffers. Because of campaigns they are currently involved with I'm keeping them anonymous. Here's what I learned:
  • "Steve Schmidt was an absolute nightmare."
  • "Incompetent"
  • "We McCainiacs (people around from the beginning) never felt like he had McCain's best interest in mind."
  • "Was never around, and once (when in Iowa) disappeared for three days and we were unable to get a hold of him."
  • "Let his personal positions get in the way of the campaign."
  • "Did not have a clue about Iowans." (demonstrated by canceling a hunting photo op with Palin without explanation and said, "Iowans won't care about that")
This doesn't paint a picture of competence. Schmidt is not credible, he ran a horrible campaign and is trying to cover his butt.

So please do us a favor Schmidt, shut up and never, ever go near a campaign ever again. Unless it's a Democrat's campaign; that would be all right.
