WaPo mounts 'boycott Sarah' movement (updated)

Like an addict vowing to give up booze or heroin, Washington Post writer Dana Milbank is organizing readers  to vow to not read about Sarah Palin for the next month. Kristinn Taylor and Andreea Shea King write in Big Journalism:

The Post has picked up the call initiated this morning by Post columnist Dana Milbank, adding a Twitter link on the column page. The link generates a message to be sent from a Twitter member's page that reads, "I'm making February a Palin-free month. Will you join me?"

The Post added the Twitter link to Milbank's column this afternoon, several hours after running and pulling a Washington Post online poll about boycotting Sarah Palin news coverage.  The poll initially accompanied The Post's Milbank op-ed but was pulled within hours of publication at WashingtonPost.com.

This is pathetic, but at least Milbank recognizes that he and other journos are addicted to attacking Sarah, and that it is counter-productive.

Meanwhile, without any use of twitter or any organized campaign, readers are boycotting the WaPo:

Post readership continues to plummet as daily circulation fell 10.7% during the first six months of last year. Its flagship Sunday edition fell 9.5%.  Readers are abandoning the Post in droves in the nation's capital.

Guess which boycott will succeed.

Update -- James Lewis adds:
 
Misogyny is a deep and nasty hatred of all women.  

Sarah Palin is unmistakably a woman. 

Therefore, using liberal logic the Washington Post's Twitter campaign against Governor Sarah Palin -- by Looney Tunes Bizzarro Dana Milbanks --  shows his hatred for all women everywhere. 

This is the exact same logic as "racism," "homophobia," "sexism" and all that dreck.  Well, now they get a small taste of their own medicine. We hope and trust that all the usual media mobsters will rage unanimously against Dana Milbanks, and chase him out of the WaPo. 

We can't have misogyny in America's Pravda. 

Incidentally,  "misogyny" is a real English word. 

Hatred of women is what Muslim fanatics practice, by killing young girls for the "honor" of the family. It's what Shariah law demands by making all women wear black parachutes around their bodies, in the heat of the Middle East and Africa. Or else they have to stay locked up at home. 

This is not "Islamophobia," a word that some leftie PR agency made up and spread around to poison the political air. "Islamophobia" was paid for by Saudi money, it's fair to assume. David Axelrod made millions of dollars whipping up exactly that kind of hysteria. 

"Islamophobia" is a phony word. "Misogyny" is not. 

Misogyny. Watch for more coming from the Left as the Smear Palin campaign revs up for 2012. 

Yossi Gestetner adds:

This dummy fails to note that Palin aint Obama who was built up by the press/media, and therefore wont be able to survive without their help. To the contrary. the Media/Press did all they can to destroy Palin, yet she is still standing, but for some reason Milbank is in this illusion that Media/Press can some how doom her power by not covering her.

What a living-in-a-bubble fool-head this guy is.
