'Unclean! Unclean!'

I had no idea that the recriminations phase of GOP Meltdown '08 would be this much fun. It's like July 4th, the Superbowl, and Cinemax After Dark rolled into one.

Perhaps intending to kill Democrats with a massive overdose of schadenfreude, the blog Red State announces: Operation Leper.

We're tracking down all the people from the McCain campaign now whispering smears against Governor Palin to Carl Cameron and others. Michelle Malkin has the details.

We intend to constantly remind the base about these people, monitor who they are working for, and, when 2012 rolls around, see which candidates hire them. Naturally then, you'll see us go to war against those candidates.

It is our expressed intention to make these few people political lepers.
'Cuz Sarah Palin is the future of the Republican Party, dontcha know, and nothin' can be allowed to delay her date with destiny.

But, guys, you don't need to wait until 2012 to go all Michael Corleone on the Palin haters. There's an election in 2010. Did you know that, or are you planning to blow that one off?


The American Conservative wonders if the Red Staters have thought this all the way through.

[E]rick did stumble onto a very solid bit of inferential reasoning. One can only “make” someone a leper, short of bio-weaponization techniques a bit beyond even RedState’s competence, by contracting the infection and then transmitting it. Now of course, leprosy is a particularly nasty bug, and it’d be asking a lot of RedStaters to get themselves sick with it. But this isn’t just any political cause; we’re talking about the long-term viability of the woman who is guaranteed to lead the GOP to crushing victories in at least half the states that border Appalachia, and crushing defeats absolutely everywhere else. No burden is to heavy to bear to see to it that Barack Obama breezes to a second term effectively unopposed.
