They Can't Keep a Good Woman Down

Much of the political and media establishment thought that they permanently buried Sarah Palin's reputation after last year's election. Now they seem to be apoplectic that she's back, stronger than ever with her new book tour. Robert Costa is maintaining a "Rogue" blog at NRO covering the book tour and the range of reactions to it.

Meanwhile, it appears that a lot of Americans, many of whom probably don't share Palin's political views or populist style, have come to see that she has been treated unfairly by much of the media, according to a Fox News poll.
As Sarah Palin blankets the media on a whirlwind book promotion tour, the former vice-presidential contender is clearly back on America's radar screen. Despite being characterized by many as a divisive force in her party and the nation, Americans are much more likely to give Palin a positive rating (47 percent favorable) than another prominent female leader -- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (28 percent favorable). Moreover, about six in 10 Americans (61 percent) think Palin has been treated unfairly by the press, according to the latest Fox News poll.
