In this post I said that Palin’s speech had left the Donks and their stooges in the MSM who do their dirty work, temporarily stunned, but they would come back like the cornered rats they are, with a massive effort to destroy Gov. Palin. I expected that they would come up with something major by now, but their initial digging seems not to have unearthed much. I was forwarded two pretty trivial emails this weekend that seemed to be initial “feelers”. Both purported to be revalations about Palin by individuals who knew her, but both were pretty weak. And so far Obama’s campaign has seemed to be unsure of how to respond.
Some concrete evidence is emerging of what must be the most massive and desperate effort to counterattack an enemy with momentum since the Nazis before Kursk. Beneath the layers of slimy water, a vast, foul beast is stirring. The MSM is taking its experienced reporters off of coverage of terrorism and devoting them to try to find something, anything, to use against Gov. Palin. (Via Instapundit.) These people have their priorities, and getting Barack Obama elected is the top priority of them all.
They don’t need much. Just something that sounds plausible and damaging and they will repeat it over and over until the election. I am amazed they haven’t started their barrage of garbage yet. But as Jonathan once told me years ago, about another class of purported professionals, long before anyone ever thought of blogs, “these guys are usually either corrupt, overworked or incompetent, and frequently all three”. For the MSM add: Smug, Arrogant, Utterly Ignorant of Real America outside of LA/NYC/DC and usually Lazy. So, they have failed to accomplish anything for several valuable days, just as they failed to anticipate that Gov. Palin might be picked as VP, even though it has been talked about for many months prior to the event.
But stay tuned. They will either find or fabricate their “story” soon.
Wait for a front-page, above the fold story in the New York Times this week, which will be the cue for the whole loathesome, yapping pack. That is my guess.
UPDATE: A comment on the (always good) Right Coast has an angle that the Donks may become desperate enough to try: “Jesus was a community organizer, and Pontius Pilate was a governor.” It does fit in with the whole Barack-is-the-Messiah schtick.
