They HATE Sarah Palin. This is why.

Kevin Drum from Mother Jones thinks that, after Obama is coronated, Sarah Palin will just shrivel up and blow away. Why? Because smart liberals like Kevin Drum hate her. He writes:

Palin is lazy, ill-informed, contemptuous of policy, and way too convinced that everybody in the country is dazzled by her folksy energy and thousand-watt smile . . . on November 5th she'll disappear to Wasilla for good.

Which is where folks like Kevin Drum wish all us Red Staters would go. They don't get why we love her, and to the degree that they do understand, they are contemptuous of us and our rural stupidity. But this is why we love her, and why they hate her:

Sarah Palin. On the campaign trail. Stopping at Wal-Mart with the secret service to pick up some diapers.
She's one of us, folks. Down to the core. That why the liberal elites hate her so much. They resent the idea of one of us great unwashed clambering over the ivy-covered wall and playing in their playground. And they just can't wait until Sarah--and you, and me--just disappear, so they don't have to be bothered any more.
I think they're going to be waiting a long time.

Too bad she can't handle the tough questions like "What newspaper do you read?"

That newspaper thing... a bone for the dumbasses.

While we discuss whether we want socialism in the U.S., and all the pivotal issues of the campaign, the Dems throw little bones to their vapid followers.

Little Erin, and all her friends with the teensy weensy minds, go gnaw that bone, dear, gnaw it somewhere else. This site is for grownups.

Seriously. Who reads newspapers? I read Variety. About the closest thing I come to a typical newspaper. I read a lot of blogs, a lot of news feeds, check the Google news regularly. Why do I need folks like that reporter in Scranton who invented someone yelling "kill him" at a Palin rally to distort and make-up news for me? The more unfiltered the news source, the better. In fact, the best filter for news is the blogosphere--the media hates it as unfiltered--but by the time news spreads, there is a lot of vetting. Original stories might still be wrong, but you get plenty of other input that doesn't exist if you just take your pabulum for the the newspapers.
