The Decline and Fall of Sarah Palin

THE DECLINE AND FALL OF SARAH PALIN....The Sarah Palin chickens are coming home to roost, and I'm here to crow about it:

Me, on August 29: "Conservatives on the tube are really, really struggling to defend this choice. I almost feel sorry for them. I'm sticking to my guns that before long this will be seen for the debacle it is."

My colleague Jonathan Stein, today: "Palin is simply not the giant-killer we thought she was. Take a look at this chart....she now has the lowest approval rating of any member of either ticket."

The clear lesson from all this: more people should listen to me! Spread the word.
