Mind the Rumors, Yeah?

Just dropping a link to a valuable article from across the pond: Nick Cohen's "When Barack's Berserkers Lost the Plot."

Significant quote:
In an age when politics is choreographed, voters watch out for the moments when the public-relations facade breaks down and venom pours through the cracks. Their judgment is rarely favourable when it does. Barack Obama knows it. All last week, he was warning American liberals to stay away from the Palin family. He understands better than his supporters that it is not a politician's enemies who lose elections, but his friends.
