What’s doing?

Palin’s appearance on Greta last night certainly leaves the impression she’s not running, and the reasons she articulated may very well be what she is thinking, not just cover talk:

Sarah Palin justifiably is outraged at the latest Joe McGinniss outrage.

In addition to knowing that McGinniss and Random House published lies about her, Palin now has evidence not usually available to libel plaintiffs, in the form of an e-mail obtained by Andrew Breitbart in which McGinniss admits to not having the...

“Passive-aggressive whining about people who dare to disagree with you” is Jim Treacher’s latest comment here, directed at me.

Bizarre.  He’s been commenting furiously in the comment section here because I wrote a post critical of The Daily Caller’s handling of the Mike Tyson video about Sarah Palin.

I haven’t posted about the Twitter and blog war which broke out over a clip of Mike Tyson trash talking Sarah Palin in very explicit and violent sexual ways, although I did spotlight Dan Riehl’s post about it as Post of the Day.

The controversy is not that a convicted rapist would...

Yesterday The National Enquirer and the blog equivalents (Wonkette, Gawker, TBogg) ran two hot button headlines about Sarah Palin based on a preview of a book written by creepy stalker Joe McGinniss.  You know the allegations, so it’s not worth repeating (see Robert Stacy McCain’s take on the race-baiting).

I made the point the other day that Sarah Palin’s speech in Indianola, Iowa, went to the core of the Tea Party movement:

I don’t know what the future holds for Palin, whether she will be a candidate or just a powerful voice against crony capitalism.  I also don’t know whether the two...

Obama flubbed his history.  Via Ed Morrissey, Obama inaccurately called Abraham Lincoln the founder of the Republican Party:

Not true! Doesn’t Obama know history?

So now the media will erupt for weeks on end about what an “idiot” and “fool” and “know-nothing” Obama is, just like it erupted over Sarah Palin’s (accurate) comments about...

I guess that makes me a Scientologist, because I’ve posted repeatedly that Palin holds a special position because there is no one — not even George W. Bush — who has been the subject of the Democratic, mainstream media and left-blogosphere smear machine to the extent Palin has.

So yes, I do take it personally...

Michele Bachmann is doubling down on Ed Rollins, even though health concerns (allegedly) are the reason he will not run her campaign on a day-to-day basis:

Sources close to Rep. Michele Bachmann tell National Review Online that the Minnesota Republican has known for days that Ed Rollins, her campaign manager, would be...

I don’t have much time to “analyze” Palin’s speech in Indianola (text here), Iowa and what it all means in terms of the political landscape.

But what jumped out at me is that she expressed one of the core principles of the Tea Party movement, that corporate interests are not necessarily our interests:

Consider this an “open” thread.

Because of travel, it’s unlikely I’ll get to watch the speech live.  It’s scheduled for about 1 p.m. Central.

The latest conventional wisdom is that there will be no presidential announcement or announcement that she’s not running.  Rather, the speech will be a “full throttled” defense of the...

That’s not to say bloggers who work for The Man are not independent thinkers and writers, but the pressures are there depending upon who The Man is:

Regardless of whether you support her or not, for President or not, no one does inspirational political (campaign?) videos better than Palin.

Palin’s Mama Grizzlies and Together videos were historic.

This is another home run (h/t TheOtherMcCain):

Once again, the mainstream media is chasing after Sarah Palin as she visits various part of the country.

Just like her early summer bus tour, I can’t help but laugh to see the likes of Chuck Todd breathlessly reporting such important events as Palin getting back in a minivan:

It’s hard to believe the media narrative about Palin ever could change.

But it could change among the less crazed. MSNBC always will be foaming at the mouth, but others would have a hard time keeping up the hate.

Update:  To readers complaining about how Bachmann was portrayed in the CNN clip, they...
