How much of a bounce when Palin emotionally defends herself as an innocent mother facing scurrilous attacks and Levi & Bristol get on stage holding hands? Discuss.

She has the GOP. 

It starts eating into the Democrats, the ones that don't hate motherhood.

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

I think Beet is being sarcastic, though I'm not sure.

Are you kidding me?  Conservatives LOVE this drama.  If they could turn it into a bona fide reality show, they would.  Screw the Discovery Channel... we want boobs and beer and buffalo wings!

I think almost everyone agrees it'd be almost irrelevant, but a bunch are voting 15+ as a joke.

J.J.'s response might be funny if it weren't so drearily predictable.

When J. J. started talking about how Democrats hate motherhood is also roughly the time when his defenders quit arguing he wasn't a hack and rather more along the lines of "Well there's tons of Obama hacks just as bad." (Not true of course. There were tons of Obama hacks, but none remotely came near his level.)

none. 

wow, it's interesting to vote, then see the results.  real dichotomy of opinions.

I think folks have heard what they will already.  Long before this.  The Levi-Bristol romance won't make a difference.   Just hearing a name always helps.  It's like a very annoying commercial jingle (Think:  "Co-stanza") so it may give a slight, fleeting bump.  Coupla transient points.  But the bounce will be temporary and net near zero in the end. 

folks seem to either admire her or loathe her.  She's like Hillary in that sense.  There's not much room.  I kinda like her myself.  She's a hottie, as governors go, although that deep North twang can be annoying.  But this stupid stuff doesn't make a difference.  I can't imagine it'll make a difference to those who like her or to those who don't.
