Conspiracy theory: I see that, according to the USA Today/Gallup poll, McCain is now up by 10 points. I suspect that there is a genius Republican plot going on. It's so good, Rove must be behind it. The GOP must have planted people in the media and the blogosphere and ordered them to obsess about how Palin is Alaskan trailer trash. It is brilliant: nothing is going to convince Reagan Democrats to vote Republican better than telling them that someone they identify with is low-class. It's "clinging to guns" all over again. I am truly impressed.

I think you are right. Except Rove did not have to plant anybody, they just had to sit back an watch. But at least she made the election entertaining.

It's been a brilliant move. With all the talk generated you'd think Palin was running for president. Looks like they might just finagle a "third term."
