Palin on stump for McDaniel: ‘Status quo has got to go’

Palin urged the McDaniel crowd, “Please don’t get distracted by some of these ridiculous non-stories,” an oblique reference to the recent Cochran photo scandal — four McDaniel supporters including a state and local tea party leader being arrested for allegedly photographing Cochran’s bedridden wife in a nursing home to use in a political hit piece video.

“The media will not succeed in getting you to pay attention to things on the periphery that don’t amount to a hill of beans,” Palin said. “The media is doing the same old blah, blah, blah, white noise.”
