Specifically, an online video campaign that asserted Palin once belonged to a political party that favors Alaska’s secession from the United States (and tried to cast doubts on Palin’s patriotism) has been ferreted out.
These weren’t some mischievous teens or anarchist college students that hatched this video.
Michelle Malkin, in her own piece, then reported how quickly the supposedly “viral video” was scrubbed, which cries out “Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!” The online video evaporated within those same wee hours of this morning. The perpetrators apparently didn’t want the MSM to follow the same trail of evidence that The Jawa Report found, a trail that possibly leads all the way up the chain to David Axelrod, Obama’s chief media strategist.
Of course, one has to wonder why the Obama camp is so paranoid about Sarah Palin that they have to sink to such a low level. Don’t they think they can win on the issues? Oh, that’s right! Apparently not, because Obama turned down the chance to appear in unscripted joint townhalls with John McCain. Hmmm . . . I see.
