“Vanity Fair has a big article on Sarah Palin. Writer Todd Purdum does a tell all. One McCain campaign friend called Palin a little shop of horrors on the trail. All of her little team together working. Another accused her of narcissistic personality disorder. If that’s not getting thrown under the bus I don’t’ know what is.” (The Ed Show)

The Vanity Fair article details more fighting inside the Republican Party. The article’s author, Todd Purdum, interviewed key McCain staffers, exposing friction between Sarah Palin and McCain’s senior aides. We’ve analyzed perspectives on reactions to the article.

Purdum told MSNBC that the fighting about Palin has been going on for a while.

“So this is a real family feud that you have sparked with your Vanity Fair piece.  Well absolutely Andrea. But you and I know from covering campaigns that if it looks like a campaign is having trouble form the outside the inside reality is far worse.”

But an analyst on FOX News’ Hannity says the article is just another scare tactic by liberals- and that Palin is doing just fine.

“People like Vanity Fair are starting to sound paranoid. I mean the left is attacking her with almost a paranoid fervor because I think they’re legitimately worried about her. You think they view her as a threat? Yes that’s obvious. There’s no need to devote 11 pages of really non-story.”
 
Keeping up the optimism, The Washington Post’s Dan Balz speaks of Palin as a means for Republicans to regain their political footing.

“She is an irresistible personality around whom the arguments about the Republican future will continue to swirl. Some of this is truly about Palin past and future, but the noise also symbolizes deeper arguments about a party attempting to regroup under difficult circumstances.”

An ABC News contributor doesn’t think the article will change people’s opinion of the Alaskan Governor.

“I don’t believe it really is that damaging.  I think when you read that article there are a lot of people who are for Sarah Palin that will continue to be even more for her. They will essentially be casselfied in their support for her. Those that never liked Sarah Palin to being with will find a lot to again really dislike her. And those that don’t care will continue not caring.”

Is the Vanity Fair article recycling old news or does it reveal a fear for Democrats?
