Illustration; this weeks MSNBC ratings.
When Palin was picked for the VP nomination Lemuel Calhoun predicted that the left would be vicious in attacking her family, especially with regard to Trig who was born with Downs Syndrome: "Do not doubt me in this, I may have underestimated McCain but one literally can not have too low an opinion of left-liberal Democrats. There is absolutely no moral depth to which they are not compelled to dive."
Recently there have been suggestions that Bristol’s efforts in Dancing With the Stars has driven the left insane after all of those accusations of a vast right wing conspiracy, Tea Party vote rigging and so on. This is completely wrong. The left were completely incoherently deranged long before she took her first step onto the dance floor.
Bristol Palin has now acquired the most celebrated award it is possible to achieve for any conservative chick, or guy for that matter. Much to the envy of all of those of us who have strived unsuccessfully for many years, she has been awarded the coveted, “Worst person in the world” award, from Keith Olbermann. It is of course becoming rather passé owing to the frequency it comes up, but hey, an award is an award.
The real class thing about her is, that while most of those who receive it tend to bask in the kudos of having done so, she has put Olbermann down in a more effective way than even a .45 between the eyes:

“Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes.Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.
“I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the ‘worst person in the world’ to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.
“To Mr. Olbermann let me say this: you can attack me all you want. But you will not stop me from getting my message out about teen pregnancy prevention. And one day, if you ever have a daughter, you may change your mind about me.”
Update; Bristol and John Ziegler slam Olbermann on BAM. (The second clip is the better one.)
