Sarah Failin'?

It seems that the honeymoon may be over for Sarah Palin. Due in no small part to obsessive 24/7 media coverage, tabloid articles and bloggers, her light certainly burned bright... and like all other American obsessions, burns out in about 2 weeks. Beanie Babies anyone?
Andrew Romano at Newsweek breaks it down:

"Palin seems to have lost some of her luster. Since Sept. 13, Palin's unfavorables have climbed from 30 percent to 36 percent. Meanwhile, her favorables have slipped from 52 percent to 48 percent. That's a three-day net swing of -10 points, and it leaves her in the Sept. 15 Diageo/Hotline tracking poll tied for the smallest favorability split (+12) of any of the Final Four. [UPDATE: The Sept. 17 Diageo/Hotline tracking poll shows Palin at 47 percent favorable and 37 percent unfavorable--an even narrower +10 split.] Over the course of a single weekend, in other words, Palin went from being the most popular White House hopeful to the least."

Well, I'm glad that in some small way, I have contributed to this.

I have but one blog to give for my country.


UPDATE: 23/6 has a new video:
