Palin Obsession Disorder

I’ve criticized Sarah Palin in the past, but haven’t had much to say about her since she left office and became a private citizen. However, she obviously continues to drive liberals berzerk. Today, Richard Cohen has an article entitled “Palin’s Red Menace” that seeks to compare Palin to Sen. Joe McCarthy, basing his argument on a Wikipedia definition of “McCarthyism.” But McCarthy was a U.S. Senator who was holding hearings stemming from his accusations, while Palin is just posting stuff on Facebook. She represents a threat to nobody, and if liberals ignored her, she wouldn’t receive much attention. But more than 9 months after the election, the left continues to be obsessed with proving Palin a stupid, dishonest, and very bad woman. And as long as they do that, it will trigger a counter-reaction by the right, and perpetuate her political celebrity status.

And by the way, I should remind Cohen that it wasn’t Palin, but Nancy Pelosi, who branded citizens who disagreed with her as “un-American.”
