  1. The same army of political operatives that descended on Alaska to dig dirt on Sarah Palin is probably going through Santelli’s trashcans and closets this very moment, according to Rush Limbaugh on his show Friday. It’s a plausible accusation, even if there’s not much evidence yet. Critics must be silenced; Obama is too big to fail.
