My Precious

Peggy Noonan offers sound advice to Democrats that they seem likely to ignore:

Right now only Mrs. Palin can hurt Mrs. Palin. Messrs. Obama and Biden can't do it and shouldn't try. And the media can't, because more than half the country won't listen to them on this subject now, and for a while. The media could get videotape of Mrs. Palin saying, "We should invade Mars and it will be easy because Mars is hidden inside my hair!" and people would say, "Stop sliming Sarah!"

It is interesting that people from all frames of reference, from all along the political spectrum, have spent the last two weeks advising the Obama campaign to leave Gov. Palin alone and re-focus on delivering their own message and criticizing the top of the Republican ticket. Yet, all of that advice notwithstanding, the Obama campaign and his allies, including his media allies, seem only able to take on the role of Gollum, obsessed and incapable of removing their focus from that small, but powerful, ring.
