It's been two years since the presidential election and America's left is still suffering the symptoms of Palinitis.
Last night Cooper devoted his show (if you can call it such) to a 'feud' between Palin and a columnist at the Wall Street Journal. He even brought in a couple of panelists to discuss how Palin's opinion was wrong, and how terrible it was that she didn't, at the very least, apologize.
The only pattern I saw was from Cooper himself who, after the obligatory statement that this happens with both Democrats and Repubicans, went on as expected and threw a Republican - Palin - under the spotlight.
The constant spin from the political/media left, of which I include Anderson Cooper, endlessly tries to mock Palin, questioning not only her opinions and statements but her intelligence a la Bush. They seem hell-bent on portraying Palin as someone who shouldn't be taken seriously, that her credibility is nothing and that she is a sort of an afterthought on the political scene.
The message is that Sarah Palin should not be given serious thought.
The irony, of course, is that the constant attacks on Palin proves she is exactly that - a major player in American politics. Their Palin obsession has caused a solidification of her reputation and credibility. As one of Cooper's panelists pointed out, Palin batted .900 in her support of candidates last week.
While Sarah Palin has not announced, or even hinted, at a run for the White House in 2012, it is apparent the leftwing machine believes that she will.
And that has them running scared.
I wonder if Obamacare covers Palinitis?
