Doom and Gloom at CBS

CBS: "Sarah Palin Phenomenon is Doomed!"

According to CBS, the media will get bored with her and move on to something else.

Translation: They tried to take her down and failed. Time to admit defeat and depart the field.

Next up: The Joe Biden Phenomenon.

Looks like she'll be talking to the media in the coming days but on her (and the McCain campaign's) terms.

Gibson didn't lay a glove on her despite all liberal spinning attempts. He came off looking much worse than she did.

Of course the thousands of women and energized Republicans showing up to see her at each campaign event remains a pretty hard to ignore story.

Biden recently tried take some of Palin's spotlight away by releasing his tax returns and only suceeded in showing the world what a skinflint he is when it comes to his charitable giving.

Oh well, he tried.

...so now they will withhold coverage in hopes that folks forget about her.

There are very reasonable and legitimate concerns about Palin's inexperience just as there are very reasonable and legitimate concerns about Obama's inexperience and thin resume.

Still Cohen's assertion that McCain choosing her is a form of
"treason" and "betrayal" is angry liberal nonsense. (Cohen is a liberal, you know?)

I doubt he would think it fair to accuse the entire left-wing of the Democratic party of "treason" for nominating Obama, a one-term senator to be commander-in-chief of this nation.

Funny, how liberals howl when they think their patriotism has been question but they don't hesitate to falsely accuse men like McCain and Gen. David "Betray Us" Petraeus of treason.

All the GOP can hope is that
the Cohens in media keep at it right up until Election Day.

Funny how Dishonest Liberals spend all their time blanketly discounting Rightie commentators only to suddenly sing their praises when they say something the Lying Lib wants others to believe. Lying hypocrites are like that.

And let it not be lost in all the distractive bluster: Palin is more qualified for high office than Obama and she isn’t on the top of her ticket as the Affirmative Action Candidate is. Besides, when is the last time Affirmative Action resulted in the best person getting the position? Ever?

Why Randall persists in calling Obama the "Affirmative Action candidate" is beyond me.

It is a ridiculous mischaracterization.

Affirmative Action is a bureaucratic program imposed from above by government, business or organization. It's supposed to seek out qualified minorities and offer them opportunities they otherwise might miss.

But it devolved into a quota system that creates double standards and lower standards for minority applicants.

Obama may have benefitted from Affirmative Action at one time, who knows. But he is running for president on his own merits, such as they are, and his very real talents and gifts.

He won't be awarded extra votes for being half-black, which is what an affirmative action admissions program might do.

He will win or lose based on the electoral vote.

To suggest otherwise is stupid and not to give them man his due.

Wrongo!

At its core Affirmative Action puts race consideration above qualifications to satisfy some White Guilt-ridden Liberal racial scorekeeping need for engineered parity/diversity in representation to make up for our racial past. And that is EXACTLY what the Apologist Left has been blindly doing with this “historic election”. In unguarded moments they themselves even admit to this, as Dave Diano has here on a couple of occasions. They do not care what black or how grossly unsuited for the job, just so long as ANY black is inserted into the Oval Office. If that’s not Affirmative Action on a presidential scale I don’t know what you’d call it. To ignore Obama’s many shortcomings and very questionable attitudes and association just to get a black in there has shined a light on the irresponsible absurdity of such misguided Liberal social engineering, particularly for a job as important as the presidency.
To not see this is stupid.

I agree, I've tried to stay away from the "Affirmative Action Candidate" statements for a while now.

Obama won the Democratic nod because his campaign mastered the art of caucuses, capitalized on his speaking abilities (Which are very good), enjoyed the benefit of a media that is mesmorized by him, and turned him into the presidential version of facebook - the hottest fad going.

Well, S, that makes it sound like the electorate alone decided on Obama and that’s not exactly the case. That ignores the fact that the Donkey Party hierarchy had already decided that they wanted the Black Candidate and put all their power behind seeing to it he was served up like that to the Donkey masses. It was not a fair contest. They even turned against their longtime party gods, the Willies, in order to see their selected Affirmative Action scheme through. And again, it’s not just me saying so. Plenty of Lefties admit to supporting him because he is black, as 95% of blacks do. Every time some Apologist Lib spout about how due to our racial past “it’s about time we elected a black blahblahblah” this just reinforces what I say. Ms. Ferraro could not have been more correct when she said that Obama only has gotten to where he is because he is black. Some won’t admit it while others cringe, but there’s no denying this is the case. A white with his questionable past and thin resume would be laughed at if trying to become president.

In Biden’s own words, the Apologist LibDems now had a “clean” black that they could throw all their support behind. They’d just been waiting for one –any one- to come along to support as they have.

r, the media swooned over him. positive coverage will do anything for you. Wasn't Hillary the true anointed one circa 2005-2006, before obama-mania?

Right, S. The Apologist Liberal Media swooned over him …because he is black.
And Hillary was indeed the Queen of the LibDems …until along came a black for them to support and promote so they turned on her –even though he is much less experienced and grossly unqualified for the job, as compared to her.
If Hill was black she would be at the top of the Donkey ticket today. Period. Not her sex; not her politics; she got sunk because of her skin color.
It’s all about race for the Left in this “historic election”. There’s no denying this.
