She doesn't need them
Yes Charlie, according to the legacy media, Palin's supposed to relax and enjoy the inevitable, and maybe even lie back and think of England.
Until, of course, she actually follows their instructions. Then they'll find fault with that--or with anything else she might decide to do.
The thing is, they know that Palin doesn't much care what they say or think about her anymore. She got a taste of the way they were going to treat her early on, when she was first thrust into the national spotlight, and she's learned to bypass them and say exactly what she means. To them, that just might be her greatest crime.
