More "Palin's Finished" nonsense.

Is anyone else seeing a pattern here?

Honestly if the coservative/republican ruling class honestly believes that the path to victory in November 2012 isw to trash Sarah Palin and by extension her supporters then you can pretty much say “Obama Re-Elected”. This would be like a dem trying to win a national election by distancing himself from blacks.

What has happened to the WSJ? The only fatigue is with the MSM because Gov Palin will not dance to their music.

They are trying to force her hand but it won’t work. She has outsmarted them all the way and she still is. She has her own timeframe for whatever she does.

Palin fatigue?

She hasn’t declared.

She’s hardly in the news.

It’s all Perry, all the time in the MSM.

More whistling past the graveyard.

Tom,

those people are scared witless by someone who doesn’t play according to their rules.

Sarah Palin will play this HER WAY!

Right now the declared candidates are getting nowhere. Keeps, up, there will only be two or three by the end of the year, and one will be Palin.

I ignore the so-called wise politicos. Palin is a rogue, and they are furious because they can’t figure her moves out ahead of time.

If she doesn’t decide until November 2011, that’s OK with me.

As for the so-called pundits, screw’em.

Love & kisses,

Satin Doll of Free Republic

Nope, we've been tracking this for the past two days, and there is a clear set of talking points distributed by persons unknown that all of these hacks are drawing from. The language has been virtually identical in at least five different pieces we have seen today alone.

There is more GOP skullduggery afoot.

It’s interesting that Paul Gigot, and EVERYONE KNOWS he is the voice of the GOP, has decided that Palin isn’t a contender...but that, somehow, her endorsement is valuable.

I saw 8 unexciting candidates last night dancing to the MSM music. Like trained circus animals.

And in Iowa last Saturday I saw this first hand.

I’m glad you only quoted one sentence, because I don’t feel much like reading the rest of it.

From Wikipedia:

He graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College in 1977, where he wrote for and later edited The Dartmouth.

He is also a Pulitzer Prize winner.

Does anyone imagine that a real conservative would possibly win a Pulitzer Prize? The WSJ editorial page is generally conservative, unless some issue arises that might undermine business as usual.

In other words, yet another “conservative pundit.”

I’ve noticed the theme “tease,” “flirt,” and “hard-to-get” for awhile now. Quite frankly, it ticks me off, and it is a sexist line of attack.

If they are feeling “fatigue” now, just stay tuned. Running against her, compared to speculating about her, is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish.

Ask Frank Murkowski and Tony Knowles. Not to mention the body count of Dems she piled up last November.

Is anyone else seeing a pattern here?

Ten months ago, Gigot and his WSJ editorial staff were waxing eloquent about Palin's sophisticated understanding of monetary policy and the negative effects of QE2:

"The former Alaskan Governor showed sound political and economic instincts by inveighing forcefully against the Federal Reserve's latest round of quantitative easing. According to the prepared text of remarks that she released to National Review online, Mrs. Palin also exhibited a more sophisticated knowledge of monetary policy than any major Republican this side of Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan."

Palin's Dollar, Zoellick's Gold

Now that the hour of her decision approaches, Mr. Gigot says if Palin had spent more time boning up on economics and how the world works, she may have had a shot.

Yeah, I see a pattern...panic.

With respect, Mr. Paul (establishment RINO) Gigot can pound sand.

Governor Palin needs QUALITY in her supporters, not necessarily QUANTITY...

...so it's just as well that she gets rid of all the "squishy" ones now.
There is, of course, the Biblical precedent of Gideon
2 The LORD said to Gideon, “You have too many men.

I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me.’

3 Now announce to the army, ‘Anyone who trembles with fear [i.e., any of you squishy establishment RINOs] may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.’”

So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained...

Has he and such as he opened 200 new threads about “The Undefeated”? aka “The Unwatched”.

Obsession has seriously undermined Palin, but not any obsessions by her skeptics.

The gov’s been on the national scene in earnest for over three years and I’m not tired of her yet. This “Palin fatigue” thing, which is actually a “I’m bored sick of Palin and I’m going to go on at length about how bored sick I am of her” thing, has been on the national scene for the last few days and I’m bored of it. I hope I’m making myself clear.

I do.

It's a pattern of fear, much like the posting of some of the Freepers here on FreeRepublic.

This is just another failed tactic to try and get her to shut up and go away, but, to their trepidation and dismay, she'll probably announce very soon.
