Last week, Jeralyn, boss blogger at Talk Left, banned comments that smeared Gov. Palin and her family.
This site will not host personal attacks against Sarah Palin, rumors of a personal nature or a discussion of her personal life or that of her children. All such comments will be deleted and repeat offenders banned.
One of the other top bloggers at TL, Big Tent Democrat, was so “uncomfortable” about the posts on the election, he volunteered to take a vacation.
I am not comfortable with writing about this election right now. I am not comfortable with the behavior of some Democrats and Left blogs regarding Sarah Palin.
But now that Gov. Palin has invited her daughter’s baby’s daddy to the convention, Jeralyn has taken the gloves off.
Palin Family Ban is Lifted

There’s no longer any reason to be silent. Palin gave up these kids’ privacy, possibly to benefit her vice presidential bid. Whatever the reason, now that she’s parading them on tv, she’s forfeited the right to ask for privacy. They are now fair game to discuss.
The wagons on the left and right are beginning to circle around their potential leaders. Yes, there are a few stragglers still wondering if they want to join in, but the majority are getting on board and loading up to fight.

A new Gallup poll out today says that the percentage of Clinton loyalists planning to vote for Obama in November jumped from 70 percent before last week’s convention to 81 percent after, and the percentage saying they are certain to back Obama increased from 47 percent to 65 percent.
