‘Palin, Amid Criticism, Stays in Electronic Comfort Zone’

The New York Times is full of all kinds of advice — mostly from Republicans, it seems — about what Sarah Palin, possible presidential candidate, needs to do in response to the Tucson shooting. Call me naive, but maybe there is no grand political strategy here. Maybe Sarah Palin just realizes this is not about her — and she’s not going to take the bait from a media that insists otherwise. No doubt she’ll talk about it more after funerals and after Rep. Giffords is not in danger. But it would be hubris to walk onto Hannity a night or two after a shooting and buy into the idea that the political world somehow revolves around her. I don’t get the impression she thinks that way. I get the impression MSNBC and others are desperate for it to be that way.
