The pent up anti-Palin hate by "journalists" (sic) and JournOlists from left and, nearly equally, right, exploded finally (how did they manage to keep such hate bottled up for so long without bursting?) after Governor Palin's speech at the Freedom Foundation in Iowa.
Not having the opportunity to really vent their spleen after years of Palin rightly and righteously calling them out as "lame stream media" because Palin, darnit, kept giving entertaining and wildly received speeches at venue after venue, they got their chance in Iowa after her teleprompter broke down. And boy did they take it!
One speech considered (by them) as sub-optimal and they went berserk calling her every sort of name under the sun and advising that that's it, from now on nobody will EVER take her seriously again. Politico's Roger Simon made that breathtakingly arrogant comment for ALL the media in a show of gross elitism and partisanship stunning even for Politico.
But...perhaps another bite at the cherry with CPAC coming up. The media will be gathered like vultures and jackals (calling them proper beast of prey is being to kind to them and insulting to lions and tigers) to watch for every possible slip or non-continuous standing ovation to try and finish her off.
That Biden can make a complete ass of himself for years passes them by because he of course doesn't call them out for their perfidy-but hey, journalistic standards what are they, just ask Brian Williams.
So, who will be the journo who writes the most biased, sarcastic, distorted partisan and silly review of Palin's speech? Here above is a poll for you to register your vote. I'm plumping for "I'll be at the bar because I forgot my earplugs " Doug Mataconis from 'Outside The Beltway' infamy to top that bit of bitter sarcasm, but no doubt you'll have your favorite TO WRITE IN.
