Charles Krauthammer begins his column today:
The Democrats are in a panic. In a presidential race that is impossible to lose, they are behind. Obama devotees are frantically giving advice. Tom Friedman tells him to "start slamming down some phones." Camille Paglia suggests, "be boring!" (What about bringing back Michelle Obama to tell us again America's "a downright mean country?" - - JinC)The current gang of Dems and media volunteers “for duty” are not unlike Henry's knights who so willing stabbed Thomas Becket in the back because he threatened Henry’s throne.
Meanwhile, a posse of Democratic lawyers, mainstream reporters, lefty bloggers and various other Obamaphiles are scouring the vast tundra of Alaska for something, anything, to bring down Sarah Palin: her daughter's pregnancy, her ex-brother-in-law problem, her $60 per diem, and now her religion. (CNN reports -- news flash! -- that she apparently has never spoken in tongues.) Not since Henry II asked if no one would rid him of his turbulent priest, have so many so urgently volunteered for duty.
Obama’s courtiers know they must break Sarah Palin or very likely lose the election.
So we see the angry, energized, “tell any lie; promote any smear” attempts to assassinate her character and destroy her public career.
Krauthammer's entire column's here.
