Palin Still in The Crosshairs

I have read Jeff Lord's post about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker supplanting Sarah Palin as "the most hated conservative in America" with both great interest and amusement.

Now I realize there was a lot of tongue-in-cheek in play but I would have to agree with Lord that Walker has become public enemy number one amongst conservative haters - for now.

It is worth noting that Palin has kept a lower profile since her statement on the Tucson massacre in January and other events most notably in Egypt, Libya and Wisconsin have kept her out of the spotlight. But if Palin announces a White House bid then the liberal media (along with some condescending conservatives) will be on her 24/7. It will make the 2008 campaign look like a leisurely stroll. And if it looks like Palin has a chance to win the nomination then it's going to be a very bumpy ride.

So even though Walker is now in the spotlight look for his detractors to increasingly link him to Palin as evidenced by recent statements from Wisconsin Democratic Congresswoman Gwen Moore and other left-wing blogs.

Make no mistake. Sarah Palin is still in the crosshairs.
