Palin Still Being Shielded From the Public

I find it beyond stunning that the Republicans have offered a Vice Presidential candidate who has refused to give a single press conference. It's been weeks and yet still no real appearance before the news media and the American public. No accontability, no questions. Are we living in Soviet Russia? Did I miss something here?

Then again, considering her rapidly falling polling numbers, the McCain campaign is forced to play defense at this point. We've seen these numbers since late last week, and I think it's pretty conclusive by this point. Sarah Palin's 15 minutes of fame are over. Good work to the netroots for doing their job and helping to frame the debate. Keep up the good work, everyone.
