Sarah Palin's successful trip to the Finger Lakes region gave way to another positive event today in Westchester County as she participated in a walk to combat autism. Sunday night, she attends a dinner on Long Island to benefit kids with handicaps.
It's the kind of stuff you would think even MSNBC couldn't find fault with but they will. Mathews will have it in his "Sideshow" segment and will fault her criticisms of President Obama as Limbaugh-like. And Olberman and Maddow will pile on as well.
There was some good coverage in upstate media of the Auburn event. I am sure many will see the virtue in Palin's trip.
Sunday afternoon she visited Yankee Stadium (photo), a highly visible appearance.
I suspect she will use her proximity to NYC to tape some kind of interview for cable television. Betcha it's Hannity or Greta.
She should consider MSNBC's "Morning Joe" where Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzenski (sic). It's mostly fair with the only real lefty, Mike Barnicle, balanced off by Pat Buchanan.
Much of the Obama-mania media is still committed to discrediting Palin, but a trip into the belly of the beast at Rockefeller Center would be gutsy. Maybe even the View but only if Hasselhoff is there that day.
I could see in Auburn, there is an appetite for Palin in middle America, but at some point you have to take on the jackels and hold your ground.
