Moulitsas notes a staggering 21 point decline in a week. More here. On 9/11, Palin had a 52 - 35 favorable - unfavorable rating. She now has a 42 - 46 favorable - unfavorable rating. She went from + 17 to - 4 in a week [update now - 5] . Kos says this proves that the focus on her constant lying, religious fanaticism, spectacular stupidity, ignorance of basic facts even on energy, total unawareness of and interest in foreign policy and inability to hold a press conference was a strategy worth pursuing.

I agree but not for partisan reasons. My concern with Palin is merely to expose the truth about her in the face of an historically unprecedented campaign of seclusion, press intimidation and constant, constant lies.
