This video may be one of the most convincing arguments yet for a Palin candidacy, because it shows how the far-left establishment reacts to her. After dodging Althouse's questions about Palin for almost eight minutes, The Huffington Post's Rachel Sklar is finally forced to talk about Palin, and this is the only anti-Palin argument that she can muster:
I would note that Miss Sklar is the HuffPo's "media and special projects editor", which is not exactly a low-level job. If all that she can muster against Palin is a rant about her own opposition to pro-lifers, then we know that we have found a VP candidate who can sink the Democratic ticket. Sklar's repeated refusal to even mention Palin also proves a major point: Sarah Palin scares the living daylights out of her potential opponents. It is almost impossible to attack Gov. Palin without placing your foot in your mouth, so the only way to get out of the conversation is to change the subject. Just think about it, with Sarah Palin on the ticket, interviews like this one could become commonplace on national television! If we spend the election season watching stammering Democrats desperately trying to explain away McCain's bulletproof running mate, then I think that there is a very good chance that the GOP ticket will steamroll to victory in November.
