Yeah, That'll Work... Not

So Obama's strategy is going to be to play it straight and let Ms Mooseburgers do her thing?
The Obama campaign has no silver bullet to use against the Palin. Instead, Obama has decided to largely avoid directly engaging her and will instead keep his focus largely on John McCain and on linking the Republican ticket to President George W. Bush. The Obama campaign will leave Palin to navigate the same cycle of celebrity that Obama has weathered, and the same peril that her nascent image will be defined by questions and contradictions from her Alaska past.


Obama also suggested that he'd be relying on the same press that has obsessively examined his life to pick apart Palin's.

"You know the notion that any questions about her work in Alaska is somehow not relevant to her potentially being vice president of the United States doesn't make too much sense to me," he said. "I think she's got a compelling story, but I assume that she wants to be treated the same way that guys want to be treated, which means that their records are under scrutiny. I've been through this for 19 months. She's been through it, what, four days so far?"
Yeah, that'll work.... not. The Republicans have worked furiously this week to inoculate her against media probing by sobbing great big crocodile tears while screaming, "liberal media bias!" And the media, having learned not a fucking thing from when they fell for Bushco's EXACT SAME shenanigans repeatedly (and now look where we are!), will fall for it again. Because that's what they do. One might think it's a very reasonable and responsible thing to have the media poke at an unknown surprise VP ticket appointment who might one day inhabit the oval office. *Think* being the operative word, I guess.

And me? I guess it's a good thing I'm not running Obama's campaign because I'd start kicking some McCain-Palin ass, big time. As they say, "Get a little, give a lot."
