Nailin' Palin, Wasilla Hillbilly

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Following up on co-blogger non sequitur's post from last night on the post-election attacks on Palin, here's the now-infamous report from Carl Cameron on Fox News (via Josh Marshall). Partly in response to these attacks, pro-Palin conservatives are circling the wagons. RedState, for example, has launched Operation Leper, aimed at exposing the attackers in the McCain campaign and destroying them. (Also, Palin's chief cheerleader in the right-wing punditocrazy, Krazy Bill Kristol, is going after the leakers in the McCain camp. He is no doubt upset about the attacks on Palin.)

  • Why do you suppose Fox News is running all of this? They even made a point of shooting down the ubiquitous right-wing spin, that McCain only lost because of the financial crisis, to point out that Obama's rise in the polls began after Palin's interview with Couric. Are they just eager to get the scoop? Maybe they think she's bad news and want to turn their viewers against her, but that seems unwise, given how popular she's going to continue to be with so many of their viewers. What's their angle? Or have they just been totally unhinged by the across-the-board massive losses?
