For Sarah Palin bashers, a note of caution

Attacking a Presidential candidate's VP pick may be great fun -- and, in some cases, entirely justified -- but is it politically effective? There is ample evidence to suggest the answer is: Probably not. Take a look at two TV spots from campaigns past -- 1968 and 1988. On the '68 page, click, under the "Democrat" heading, on the seventh block from the top (or, if you prefer, the second block from the bottom). On the '88 page, under "Democrat," check out the eighth from the top. See what I mean? Be afraid. Be very afraid.
