Palin Derangement Syndrome

One of the odd similarities between Bill Clinton and George W. Bush is their ability to drive their opponents starking, raving mad. It appears that Sarah Palin is having a similar effect, not only on radical Code Pinkers, but on the core of the Democratic establishment and on Barack Obama himself.


* Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen compares Obama to Jesus Christ, while mentioning that Pontius Pilate was a Governor.
* South Carolina Democratic Chairwoman Carol Fowler says that Governor Palin's "primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion."
* And Obama himself breaks out the "lipstick on a pig" line without either knowing or caring that it would be taken as an obvious personal slap at Governor Palin.

And that was just this week. Sarah Palin has simply sent them off the deep end. They can't get their heads around a young, conservative, female Governor who has connected so quickly and so well with the mood of the American people, and it's sent them around the bend. I hereby christen the phrase "Palin Derangement Syndrome" to describe anytime attacks on Governor Sarah Palin reveal that her attackers have lost the minds.
