Quote of the Day (January 20, 2011)

"Why now? Hinderaker never addresses that question"
William A. Jacobson at Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion:
"Why now? Of all the moments to let loose on Palin, why on the cusp of the media assault over the Tucson shooting, which was not only a media attack on Palin but also on the entire conservative movement? Remember, while Palin was the focus of media attention because of the phony supposed connection of her electoral map to the shooting, there was a broader media attack on 'right-wing vitriol,' conservative talk show hosts, and other Republican politicians such as Michele Bachmann. Why at such a critical moment in time would one of the most widely read conservative blogs run a headline declaring the candidacy of Palin over? Hinderaker never addresses that question, which I believe is what upsets people the most. There is no need for uniformity of opinion, but there also is no need for gratuitous piling on in a manner which empowers those who willingly smear leading Republican figures."
