The "Finlandization" of the Republicans

I was lucky to catch a bit of this Rush Limbaugh broadcast today while I was running errands. Rush read and commented on a great blog post by William Jacobson, We Just Witnessed The Media's Test Run To Re-Elect Barack Obama.

I recommend reading the post, or listening to Rush's broadcast. The main point to me is that a lot of bland-middle Republican leaders think they can let the Leftist media take down Governor Palin, and then they will be safe. This is about as smart as the idea of letting the Islamists or the Nazis take the Jews, so they will be contented and not bother anyone else.

But of course any Republican Presidential candidate is going to hit the same buzz-saw. And they won't be ready. Just like poor McCain wasn't ready, and went into the campaign thinking the media would be nice to him as they always had in the past.

If Republicans toss Palin off the sleigh to appease the wolves, the next attack will be worse. Because we will have taught the wolves that chasing the sleigh is a good way to get a snack.

There is only one person we know will be ready. 'Cuz she's the only man in the Republican leadership, and because she's already endured a typhoon of slime, and remains unbowed...
