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.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
