Dog-whistles and the Pav-Rovian response

I should've watched the whole piece, of course...but, God, it's hard listening to a) anyone on Fox News and especially b) Sarah Palin. The woman's voice peels paint.

That said, TPM is reporting that Sarah, in the same Van Susteren interview yesterday, dropped "the H-bomb", throwing out Obama's middle name while questioning why his past was never scrutinized like Christine O'Donnell's currently is.

Yeah, I know, I know.

Palin knows full well this Fox-Beckian line of "I'm justing asking" is bullshit.  She's doing it because she and others have calculated that the hounds will hear the dog-whistle and come a-runnin'.

How ironic that we, as the "enemy" on the Left, are actually the fox here?
