As I said before, McCain's recently-launched war against the media is paying dividends for Obama.This kind of narrative plays well with the base, who has been trained to ignore the "liberal media". But to the voters that matter right now, it's about as effective as complaining about an umpire's pitch call.Palin's ostensible strength was as a media darling, but her isolation and the hostility towards the media from the McCain campaign has really undermined that.Granting her concessions and squealing in public over unfair treatment also undermines the "pit bull" narrative.I've been wrong about Palin's effect before, but I see her much more as "damaged goods" at this point than she was at the Convention.And, a bit off topic, but since when do Republicans care so deeply about sexism? Hasn't that always been nothing more than "political correctness" and "angry lesbian talk" up until a few weeks ago in Republican thinking?

Plus, the claims of bias don't really work when we're all seeing Palin's catastrophic failures right before our eyes. It's not like Couric or Gibson are kicking her in the head before the questions.(As for your interest in the GOP's new sexual liberation, it's particularly funny considering they spent all last year building a 400 page dossier on all the ways to attack Hillary Clinton.)
