ANN ALTHOUSE: “People are trying very hard to ruin Allen West right now, before he gets anywhere, and they are trying to ensure that Sarah Palin stays down where they think they crushed her.”

It’s going to take more than Amanda Marcotte to do that. . . . From the comments: “Marcotte is a sexist pig, so why should anybody listen to her? She’s just afraid of an angry black man, so she is lashing out in a racist way.”

Yeah, first Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, now Amanda Marcotte: What is it with the Democrats sending white women to attack a black man, anyway? Are they trying to play on gendered racial fears among white voters? It’s some kind of dog-whistle, isn’t it?
