What Are They Afraid Of?

When some one squashes any questions about themselves by not allowing people in to ask any, it says to me two things: 1) they have something to hide, and 2) they are afraid of what questions will be asked as it may reveal the items in no. 1.
John McCain's presidential campaign has shielded the first-term Alaska governor for weeks from spontaneous questions from voters and reporters, and went to striking lengths Tuesday to maintain that distance as Palin made her diplomatic debut.

The GOP campaign, applying more restrictive rules on access than even President Bush uses in the White House, banned reporters from the start of the meetings, so as not to risk a question being asked of Palin.
Even more restrictive than Bush? Holy crap, that can't be better practice for America, can it?
