A post that could disappear

National Review's Byron York spoke to Steve Schmidt "a senior strategist in the McCain campaign". The conversation included some Rove-style pushback from the strategist on why Governor Sarah Palin was trying to get her ex brother in law fired as a state trooper --

"The reason that members of the Palin family were having discussions with the head of the state police about this state trooper, who was her ex-brother-in-law, was because he had made threats against the family. He threatened to kill the governor's daughter, her father, and her sister. He tasered her 11-year-old stepson. And that is why the Palin family was concerned about this trooper."

Presumably they've had a lawyer look over those statements before going public with them.
