Politico's anti-Palin crusade continues unabated. The leftist website's latest stupid media trick is a blatant attempt to confer undeserved respectability on the deranged fringe bloggers whose hate for Gov. Palin is so all-consuming that they have made it their mission in life to destroy her. At Pirate's Cove, William Teach observes:
Isn’t it amazing how this supposedly stupid, moronic, lite-weight non-factor of a politician and presidential candidate garners so much press, loathing, and fear? Not just from those on the Left, but some of the wishy washy Republicans?It's bad enough that many of the lies these Hater-Ade drinkers crank out on their blog are routinely picked up and published by lamestream major media outlets, but now Politico has decided to act as their PR agent.
Notice that none of the opinions are truly about her policies, but about her personally. Promiscuous? She’s had 5 children with the same man she has been married to. Petty? These same people love President “I won.” Unintelligent? If so, why do these mostly lefties focus on her so much?
Sounds more like they are scared of her mostly Conservative policies. Also, this is a form of Clinton’s old “policy of personal destruction” at work, though one that just skips destroying a politician/pundits policy ideas. And the Politico has joined the party:A number of forthcoming books promise to delve deeply into – and, they believe, give mainstream credibility to – some of the more salacious Palin rumors and conspiracy theories that have sprouted in the anti-Palin blogosphere and on supermarket tabloid stands, but have mostly been rejected by the mainstream media.So, there was a point for the story, and that’s pushing all the anti-Palin books that are coming out. Interesting that there are so many, considering how this woman is supposedly done in national politics.
