Hate to belabor a point, but Allahpundit has now posted on the topic of Sarah Palin’s assertion that the McCain campaign mishandled her media strategy, a point seconded in a U.S. News report. Allah says:
I doubt it would have made a difference in the election — although it might have made a difference in her credibility with independents now.
This goes to the point I made in my column today about the “gap between the perception and reality of Sarah Palin.” To the extent she is now perceived as an airhead or a lightweight, that perception is in large measure a function of a failed media strategy devised by the McCain campaign. She now has to “backfill” to counter that perception, for which Team Maverick is largely to blame. I mean, really, how could Palin possibly have done worse on CNN than Tucker Bounds?
