Don't make me laugh.
Where, exactly, was the part where anyone in the MSM "raise]d]" Sarah Palin anywhere? The press has been trying, almost from the beginning, to knock Governor Palin down -- and the public knows it. Can anyone point me to one single flattering MSM piece about the Governor or her family -- you know, the kind that the Obamas have enjoyed on a regular basis?
In fact, Barack Obama constitutes a living refutation of Friedman's thesis. We have the most inexperienced, far-left candidate ever on a major party presidential ticket, with dubious associates and questionable performances in his past -- and yet, none of it is covered.
Odd. Well, perhaps with Friedman's insistence that Governor Palin's impact will diminish, the wish is father to the thought.
