THE PRESS IS OBSESSED: 60% of Washington Post's Biden Tax Story Devoted to Palin. Reader C.J. Burch comments: "This is also a factor in the all Palin all the time thing. She wouldn't be such a rock star if the Dems and the press didn't depsise her so viciously. They're going to get worse. She's going to get more popular."
