everywhere ms palin goes, thousands turn out as much as 24 hours in advance, often in freezing weather
it happened again in roanoke yesterday
obama would struggle to generate that kinda enthusiasm today
and he's president
like it or not, she's a phenom
and the entire tone of the media in covering her has radically changed
for 2 days they were giggling and teabagging and really quite gross
then grand rapids happened---i saw it live at 6am on msnbc---and suddenly serious and somber became coffee joe's fun-poking panel
the folks around here at dp don't fear her, it's true
but the elites sure do
they go way out of their way to report on anything they got on her, often stretching wildly far
now they're kinda scared to touch her
she knocked every interview out of the park
she's obviously matured a great deal
her supporters, basically, are as intimidating as the town halls
they're pretty much the same people
the way she's handled this tour, for instance, can objectively be described as nothing less than virtuoso
Here's a new drinking game for you, prof -- every time one of her supporters draws a BLANK STARE when asked about specific policies... take a drink.
It's a lot fun -- but difficult to keep up. So many blank stares and clueless looks...

Clueless rubes... just like her.
