I think Gabriel nails that one, at Ace HQ. What some of these yahoos are conveniently forgetting, is that McCain's campaign was dead in the water before the infusion of Palin-power brought it back to life. Staffers who are worried about how bad they themselves look, for running a weak campaign, are looking for a convenient patsy.

I Support Sarah Palin
From what I can tell, commentators are lashing out for a few reasons.
(1) They're simply angry and they're looking for likely targets.
(2) All the cool kids inside the beltway hated on her, so the wannabes are just copying.
(3) Folks aren't quite ready to admit that McCain bears ultimate responsibility for the ****ty race he ran.
(4) Republican campaign dweebs are looking for attention from the media; bashing Palin seems to work pretty good. (See also: Clinton, Hillary.)
In other words, Governor Palin is a convenient target who the media is already predisposed to treat poorly. I don't know what 2012 has in store for us; we've got to deal with 2010 first! But right now I support Palin.
Thank you, Governor, for your hard work.
