Doug Ross has your one-stop Palin Derangement Syndrome Database to keep up with who’s said which smear.

Meanwhile, The Jawa Report has a lengthy and detailed post on “Hope, Change, & Lies: Orchestrated ‘Grassroots’ Smear Campaigns & the People that Run Them.” Scott Johnson of Power Line describes The Jawa Report’s report thusly:

Rusty Shackleford has posted the results of his and his Jawa team’s investigation to determine the source of smears directed toward Sarah Palin. The smears include false allegations that she belonged to a secessionist political party and that she has radical anti-American views. Shackleford’s research suggests that a subdivision of one of the largest public relations firms in the world most likely started and promulgated the rumors, that the rumors were spread in a surreptitious manner to avoid exposure and that the firm was paid by outside sources to run the smear campaign. While not conclusive, Shakleford’s evidence suggests a link to the Barack Obama campaign.
