Palin Bashing From Republican Insiders

From the Financial Times
even as the Alaska governor tried to keep her options open, some allies of Mr McCain were busy trying to trash her reputation with a series of allegations about her conduct during the campaign.

Perhaps the most startling involved fresh claims about Ms Palin’s shaky grasp of geography, with unnamed McCain aides telling Fox News that during preparations for the vice-presidential debate, it emerged that she did not know Africa was a continent rather than a country.

This is a very interesting turn of events. It seems as if there is some feeling that she seriously pulled the campaign down in the end. Palin still has strong support from a part of the party.

It's become clear that Palin has the potential to continue to be a phenomenon to follow, on the other hand she may not be able to garner support beyond some of the more diehard social conservatives.
