Is the passion for Palin going the way of all passion?

This common body,
Like to a vagabond flag upon the stream,
Goes to and back, lackeying the varying tide,
To rot itself with motion.
—Octavius Caesar, in Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

Paul Mulshine of the Newark Star Ledger writes:

Looks like the Palin balloon is losing air fast. In my latest post I castigated her as being a populist rather than a conservative and generally raked her over the coals. I got a mere three comments instead of the usual outraged defenses of her honor.

Note also that Buchanan is backing away from her, though it clearly drives him crazy because he himself has strong populist leanings.

I’ve been enjoying your posts. It seems like before long we won’t be the only conservatives slamming the choice. [LA replies: Mea culpa! I left you out of the list of conservative writers who have been opposing her.]

Also, this financial crisis certainly doesn’t supplement the wisdom of selecting someone from the sticks who knows nothing about the economy.
