Sarah Palin 2.0
There's little point in engaging every small criticism, or attack against Sarah Palin. In most instances it would only amount to elevating what are no more than petty assaults. And no attempt to interject logic into any debate will work against those critics most desperately intent on nipping at Sarah's heels.

Moreover, about six in 10 Americans (61 percent) think Palin has been treated unfairly by the press, according to the latest Fox News poll…
