“The over-the-moon reaction by conservative commentators and activists to Sarah Palin’s debate performance puzzled me – until I came up with a hypothesis to explain the phenomenon,” Eugene Robinson wrote in a Washington Post blog. “Tell me if you think I’m right or wrong: For ‘movement’ conservatives, the vice presidential debate was less about 2008 than about 2012 and beyond. . . . Under my scenario, for ideological conservatives it will be a pity if McCain loses to Barack Obama but not a disaster. If that happens, I can pretty much guarantee that Sarah Palin will be back four years from now. Somewhere, the ‘Palin 2012′ bumper stickers are probably already being printed.”
