Gov. Palin expressed her surprise at Stacy McCain's "scoop" via Twitter
Really? Hmm, guess they forgot to inform me what I'm "expected to do" next wk MT@AmSpec: Palin Decision Expected Next Wk http://t.co/Ewt2MiqStacy had posted on The American Spectator's AmSpec blog:
Vendors of campaign services who hope to work for Team Palin have been told that Palin, the 2008 GOP vice-presidential candidate, will decide soon one way or another on mounting a 2012 campaign.BTW: Stacy is rather enthusiastically supporting Herman Cain for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.
Update: Stacy has updated his post:
OK, fine, governor, but I was reporting what my source had been told. Has my source been misinformed?Dude, she just told you that it was news to her. So your source obviously was misinformed. Word to the wise: When you find yourself in a hole, the first order of business is to stop digging. You're successful in new media because you're not one of the lamestreamers, Stacy. You're better than they are. Don't lapse into being like them, what with their anonymous sources, etc. If a single source isn't willing to back up what he or she says by putting a name behind it, it's time to find independently confirming sources.
