There’s a story in The Politico today. I don’t think I have ever read a piece of reporting like this where the reporter is writing about a coordinated effort to destroy somebody’s character and reputation as if it’s some kind of a game. Kenneth Vogel in Politico: Meet the Anti-Palin Crusaders.” This is how the story begins: She is a promiscuous, petty and unintelligent, yet deviously conniving warmonger intent on capturing the Oval Office and, from there, the world. Those are just some of the opinions about Sarah Palin held by members of a small but extremely active network of gadflies, bloggers and authors who have devoted much of the last 2½ years to proving their case to American voters.

And now, with Palin edging back into the political spotlight in the face of flagging poll numbers, they believe that they are closer than ever to” destroying her.
