This Is Supposed To Be Good News?

According to Gallup, public disapproval of Sarah Palin is at an all-time high:

More than half of Americans, 52%, now view Sarah Palin unfavorably, the highest percentage holding a negative opinion of the former Alaska governor in Gallup polling since Sen. John McCain tapped her as the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee. Her 40% favorable rating ties her lowest favorable score, recorded just over a year ago.

There was some gloating about this in a comments thread on the Huffington Post, but I have to agree with the commenter who was dismayed that only 52% of Americans view her unfavorably. If the survey results are valid, and if my math is right. A 42% approval rating of Sarah Palin means over 120 million Americans approve of this sociopath. Over 120 million Americans don't recognize this mean-spirited, ignorant, hypocritical huckster for what she is.

Sadly I'm not surprised: sometimes I think if a diseased Tasmanian devil switched places with Sarah Palin, people would still show up for its public speaking engagements and book signings.

God knows the Tasmanian devil would make more sense.
