Of course Thompson had no political motivation in telling the story. He's politically pure as the Alaskan driven snow.
I feel that maybe (the McKennas ) got squeezed, Thompson said. Maybe Palins do wield a little more, you know, power. Anybody thats ever come against them, they seem to just, you know, find a way to destroy them.'
What power does an out of office Sarah Palin have over the McKennas? Perhaps the McKennas didn't appreciate having their name splashed over the national media and put the blame where it belongs, on their ex employee.
