An opinion column in the Wall Street Journal notices a serious Problem with a Palin Campaign for President. She hasn't been properly vetted. No. Really. That is what they said.
Mrs. Palin's initial mistreatment, by a press (on the right and the left) that was both jeering and patronizing, has in fact resulted in an unfortunate phenomenon. It has allowed Mrs. Palin to dismiss any criticism of her—no matter how straightforward—as yet more hostility from opponents, or as hoity-toity blather from inside-the-Beltway mopes.Uh. You are not getting it. Let me explain it in a few small words using big letters.
This isn't healthy. Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty—all have already been through the wringer, and at the hands of conservatives focused on obtaining a competent nominee. If Mrs. Palin wants the most powerful job on the planet, she shouldn't be averse to the same critical questioning.
I suppose it would be wise to expand on that for those not following LSM circulation figures.
That is all.
