Barr: PalinLand calls Milbank's 'moratorium' a sham

Politico story mentions TX4P

The fact that the Washington Post's Dana Milbank is something less than a man of his word hasn't escaped the notice of Politico's Andy Barr, who has apparently been following Milbank's failed moratorium and the response to it in the Palin blogging community:
Milbank highlighted his lack of commentary by posting on the paper’s website a link of his interview – rife with allusions to and jokes about the former Alaska governor.

Palin’s supporters weren’t happy.

“Milbank couldn't even get through the first day of his bogus boycott,” wrote a blogger for Texas for Palin, one of a network of Palin-defending sites that dinged the columnist. “This afternoon on the Post Partisan blog, Milbank wrote: ‘I survived Day One of my February Sarah Palin moratorium...’ Sorry, Skippy, but you weren't even going to mention her name, remember?”

PalinTV – a site set up by Palin supporters to show the governor’s comments in full without the media filter – also smacked Milbank with a sarcastic tweet. “Dana Milbank on ABC today talking for 5 minutes about how he's not talking about Palin,” it read.

Conservatives4Palin, the chief Palin defending vehicle online, has so far stayed off Milbank’s so-called moratorium, but has taken repeated shots at the columnist in recent weeks.

Milbank was bashed by the site after he wrote a column in the wake of the Tucson shooting arguing that even though the shooter was not influenced by Palin or Glenn Beck, they both were deserving of finger pointing after the incident...

To his credit, Barr is the only mainstream media journalist to acknowledge that Milbank couldn't even make it through one day of his Super Sham WaPo moratorium without mentioning Gov. Palin.
