Sarah Palin can see it coming. It's something I've been pointing out for some time - the mainstream media and Democrats are itching for a battle against Mitt Romney. Why? He's very, very beatable. Keep that in mind when you go vote in New Hampshire and other states.

Palin said the mainstream media would take a hands-off approach to Romney “in order to bolster Romney’s chances” to “finally face Obama.”According to Palin, the mainstream media and Obama would then portray Romney as someone who is out of touch with regular Americans in the general election.“They are already gearing up to portray him, accurately or inaccurately … as being out of touch with the working class,” Palin said, nothing that Romney’s wealth and perfect family may make it easy to paint him as someone “being a bit out of touch from working and middle class Americans and from the challenges we all face.”Palin continued: “My opinion is that I can see what’s coming ... the media will try to bolster Romney so they can tear him down, and that is quite unfortunate.”
It IS pretty easy to see coming, which is why I've argued that a longer primary doesn't allow them to prepare for just one candidate, but rather have to spread out their efforts over a number of possible opponents. The more candidates, the longer they go, the more time and treasure they will waste on eventual non-nominees,
