Time’s Joe Klein seems to have been banned from McCain and Palin campaign planes, reports the Politico’s Michael Calderone. Klein tells him that he was told he “couldn’t be accommodated at this time.”

“I’ve done nine presidential campaigns and this is the first time this has ever happened to me,” Klein said. “I was even allowed—I won’t say welcomed—on the Clinton plane in the summer of 1996 after I was revealed as the author of Primary Colors.”

Campaign spokesperson Michael Goldfarb responded that “we don’t allow Daily Kos diarists on board either.”
