As bad as the traditional media is, I'm am fairly certain they won't let this stand. The tradmed could care less about telling the whole truth, but if you make them feel like you are restricting their access, well, they tend to take it personally.
If the story becomes "Palin won't answer questions" or "Palin avoids media", that is bad for the McSame campaign.
And don't think for a second that if the Media doesn't call out this childish behavior on their own that Obama won't, which will then turn it into a story.
One just has to look at Obama's comments yesterday re: Community Organizing to see that not only will he respond quickly to pathetic reich wing attacks, but he does it in a way that makes his opponents look even more foolish then they already looked.
If Hillary wants to act as surrogate and attack Palin's positions against abortion, sex ed, creationism in schools, funds for teen mothers, etc., that's up to her to decide if she thinks those issues are important.
What's not so important, however, is rankles reebus opinion on whether or not it's hypocritical to want Hillary to defend Democratic Values.
Get over yourself, I know you still want to squeeze some life out the Primary Wars, but really, isn't there more important stuff to focus on?
You should be making phone calls to undecided voters, sending money to the DNC or Obama, volunteering for GOTV, and other things that people who actually want to see Democrats in the WH again would do.
And here I thought this was going to be a column about the old Sega Genesis game, Columns!
Anyway, the whole thing is just another example of the reich wing throwing anything and everything, no matter how contrived and ridiculous it is, against the wall. They figure one of those pieces of shit they throw against the wall might have the right texture to stick.
