Gov. Palin on a Roll, Hysterical Attacks Continue to Backfire

Have you been watching these hysterical attacks on Governor Palin? The other team has been lurching from one smear to another, desperately trying to find something that works.

And Governor Palin just keeps taking it in stride, moving forward toward victory every day.

Nothing the other team has thrown at Governor Palin has worked. Nothing. In fact, many of the attacks have produced precisely the opposite effect, further bolstering support for the Republican team.

First they attacked Gov. Palin for having been the mayor of a small town of 9,000, until the other team realized that there are lots of people living in small towns in key swing states and they may not like being slammed as unimportant, so we don't hear that one any more.

Then they attacked her family. That one not only didn't work, but served to highlight what a strong family Gov. Palin and her husband and children have.

Now we're seeing all kind of oddball attacks here and there, generating the appearance of desperation and serving to completely knock the Obama campaign off message to the point where his allies are openly worrying about the conduct of the campaign. Joe Biden appears sidelined. Obama is on defense, pegged as attacking Gov. Palin with nasty words.

This is not what their team had planned.

Meanwhile, we're seeing very clearly why John McCain chose Gov. Palin as his running mate. She is tough, unshakable, a Washington outsider who compliments his message of reform.
