On Friday the media was in a complete frenzy to get Sarah Palin, enlisting a cast of thousands to scour the 24,000 pages of e-mails released by the State of Alaska.

As just about everyone now acknowledges, the major networks and print newspapers never devoted a fraction of the effort towards important...

There is a lot I could say about John Ziegler’s article in The Daily Caller demanding that Sarah Palin not run for President, and insisting that Palin has become beholden to an inner circle of yes-men and yes-women.

I’ll make just two points.

First, Ziegler’s main argument is that Palin cannot win because...

Instead, we get this headline from AP: Palin Slams Jane Swift In E-mails.  Catfight!

Jane Swift was the former Governor of Massachusetts.  I don’t think the e-mail referenced by AP fairly could be characterized as “slamming” Swift, but Palin was critical of the fact that Swift reportedly misused state funds to help...

(by Michael Alan)

By now you’ve probably heard veteran campaign strategist Ed Rollins’ comments about Sarah Palin:

Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years. She got the vice presidential thing handed to her. She didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance.

Apparently Rollins wasn’t...

I get so infuriated when Republicans pile on Sarah Palin not over policy but through personal insult because these people don’t seem to understand that they are joining in a mob which eventually will come around to beat down their own favorite candidate.  And as of today, it has become even more of...

An adviser to Rep. Michele Bachmann sends over this fairly ruffles-smoothing statement:

“The Congresswoman has nothing but admiration and respect for Governor Palin. The two enjoy a good friendship, and Rep. Bachmann looks forward to working with the Governor for the common goal of making sure President Obama is a...

That’s what Andrew Sullivan calls me because I pointed out facts which contradict his narrative of Sarah Palin.

Funny thing about facts, Andy.  Name calling can’t change them.
