FreeRepublic is not immune to RINO shills who contrive any grievance possible against Palin.
In advertising, it’s called a “hit.” Engineer enough “hits” on any figure, and you’ve successfully undermined confidence in that figure regardless of the objective circumstances.
Justice Thomas is probably the best known example. His “believability” numbers flip-flopped with those of Anita Hill after one year on the court though absolutely zero new information became available. This was, of course, due to the advertising campaign waged against him by the MSM.
Yours is an excellent, encouraging, and truthful post.
