I read several right-leaning news sites and blogs and it upsets me that they put so much effort and energy into convincing their readers to dislike Sarah Palin. They all have their talking points:

She's unelectable...and
She doesn't go on Meet the Press or CNN...and...??

And they never suggest any alternative candidates who will be better than her. I'm hugely disappointed. As conservatives, we all should be happy about what we've accomplished and how we've rebounded since the 2008 election. The tide has turned against Obama. The 2010 midterms were great and we have a huge chance to win in 2012! But all they can do is wring their hands about how Sarah Palin doesn't go on Meet the Press. Some of them have gotten quite hostile. They're trying to make Palin supporters seem crazy. Why? Why do they go to such extremes? I wouldn't care if this was coming from DailyKos or HuffPo, but these attacks are from the Right. It's like the closer we get to the 2012 campaign, the attacks and accusations have ramped up full force. I don't get it. This is the most disappointed I've been since I've been following Palin.

I don't get it either. Normally, like you said, if it was coming from the left I wouldn't be surprised. In fact, I'd just laugh at their ignorance and jealously. But I can't wrap my brain around why all conservatives don't rally around her. I know I have said myself that she should wait until 2016 to run, but I just don't get their turning on her.

We all have been wishing for a Reaganesque type to come along. Now that we essentially have Reagan in a skirt, they bail on her. Why? We know the MSM will attack her for ANYTHING, but the right? I don't get it. I guess she should have no executive experience what-so-ever and be a Marxist. Maybe then she'd be a favorite.
