Here are the money quotes from former Michigan GOP governor William Milliken:
“He is not the McCain I endorsed,” said Milliken, reached at his Traverse City home Thursday. “He keeps saying, ‘Who is Barack Obama?’ I would ask the question, ‘Who is John McCain?’ because his campaign has become rather disappointing to me.”
“I know John McCain is 72. In my book, that’s quite young,” said Milliken, 86, Michigan’s longest-serving governor. But he added, “What if she [Palin] were to become president of the United States? The idea, to me, is quite disturbing, if not appalling.
It makes me feel proud of America to see honorable Republicans standing up to the dangerously bigoted, anti-intellectual rabble-rousing by McCain/Palin. Milliken is right. Palin is appalling, and the two of them are running a disgraceful campaign. I just wish more conservatives would stand up and say the same.
Christopher Buckley (Son of William F.) is another one.
