Apparently the Snowbilly from Wasilla didn't get the memo from Uncle Rupert yet that Mitt Romney won the Fox Republican primary race. Sean Hannity does his best here to get Sarah Palin to attack Rick Perry for calling Mitt Romney a vulture capitalist and looks pretty dismayed after Palin says Romney should both release his tax returns and substantiate his claim that Bain Capital created 100,000 jobs net/net.

Palin keeps this up and she might not get invited back on the Republican propaganda network again any time soon. Although Perry staying in the race will just make sure the Christian conservative vote remains split so that Romney can pull out another win in South Carolina even though most Republican voters can't stand him, so it's entirely possible that Hannity and Palin are just being too cute by half and playing a game of good cop/bad cop here with their debate on Perry.

I've recently caught a number of people in the media already asking if the attacks on Romney now are coming too soon to help Obama in the general election and asking if they're going to be "old news" when he's going to get these same sort of attacks from the Democrats. If I don't hear the majority of our talking heads in the corporate media pretending that future attacks on Romney's time at Bain don't mean anything because this topic has already been rehashed and vetted during the primary race and that voters supposedly aren't going to care about in the general election due to that, I'll be shocked. It will be their excuse not to report on it once more voters start paying attention to the presidential race.

Can you help us out?
