Update on my last post: Palin continues to repeat the triage-for-Trig lie, but the mainstream media are starting to call her and others out on it. Steve Benen has details.
Meanwhile, after Beck, Limbaugh et al have given it their best shot, they still can’t get more than 36 percent of the population to oppose health care reform. Is that all that they’ve got?
Immediately after the Palin VP pick made McCain momentarily popular and drove progressives to despair, I blogged (he wrote, immodestly) that the excitement wouldn’t last, and neither should the despair. Crucial media outlets were already on to her incompetence and her nonchalance regarding the truth.
My pessimistic principles notwithstanding, maybe it’s time to think that way again.
