Actually, what nobody is realizing (yet) is that this latest PDS episode has demonstrated the raw power of Sarah's various grassroots online support groups.

FReepers, FB'ers, and Tweeters all coordinated together to take Wonkette down hard last night and today. Romney's supporters could not have done this, nor could any of the others.

This was pure Palin power on public display for the first time since 2008!

Internet advertising with banners etc. is different than print. A lot of the time the web companies bundle the advertising. Advertiser give them the authority to put the ads out there where there will be the most impressions, etc.

This was on Breitbart in the comments.

“One wit who apparently didnt find Jack very funny either bought the Internet domain jackstuef.com. It redirects to the National Down Syndrome Society donation page. I’ll betcha Sarah herself bought that domain!”

BRILLIANT!

It's a blog. The original owner/operator (who cashed out a few years ago, iirc) vaulted the site to infamy by posting lurid material from a young Congressional Staffer who was in the process of sleeping her way around Capitol Hill.

It looks like Wonkette lost all of their banner advertising. Now they’ll have to rely 100% on George Soros to pay their bills.
