2012: A Journolist Odyssey

William A. Jacobson writes, “We Just Witnessed The Media’s Test Run To Re-Elect Barack Obama:”

It does not matter whether you support Palin for President, whether you think she is electable, or even whether you like her.  This is not about Palin, it is about the mainstream media’s desire to have Barack Obama re-elected at any cost and to take down any Republican candidate who stands in the way.

I’ll take it one step further, and agree with John Ziegler (h/t HotAir) that there may not be any Republican candidate other than Palin who can withstand the reinvigorated Obama media juggernaut:

Everyone else will inevitably melt (like even grizzled veteran John McCain did) when they get close to the blast furnace that will be going up against the Obama juggernaut. Far more than anyone else in conservative history, Palin has been forced to prove just how fireproof her convictions are and how deep her resolve is.

In the vile attempt to tie Palin to the Tucson shooting we have witnessed the test run for how the left-wing blogosphere will target Republican candidates and propel false narratives into the mainstream media, and how the mainstream media will take those narratives and run with them.

If Palin is taken down politically over the Tucson shooting, there is not a single Republican candidate who can survive the coming onslaught.

Roger L. Simon writes that you won’t like how it’s going to play out next year:  “Get Ready for an Obama Victory in 2012.”

I rarely doubt our Maximum Pajamahadeen, but feel free to convince me that he’s wrong, in the comments.
