Sarah Palin, Obama and Headline News

There it is, right now on CNN's website.  The headline:
America to Sarah Palin: Enough!
Wow, sounds like an absolute rebuke. "America" is sick of Palin.  But (bold added)..
A majority of voters say they've heard enough from Sarah Palin, according to a new national poll. The NBC/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania survey indicates that 54% of voters say they've heard enough from Palin and would prefer that the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate be less outspoken in political discourse. That includes nearly two-thirds of Democrats, a majority of independents, and nearly four in 10 Republicans.
So 54 percent want her to move along, which means that 46 percent don't.  A majority, but 46 percent is also a higher figure than the president's current approval rating.  What are the chances of seeing a CNN headline saying, "America to Obama: Enough!" anytime soon?  Ever? 

This hilarious story isn't the only example of bias this afternoon.  There seems to be a sudden lack of curiosity about the children-are-dying-border-crisis story on the alphabet networks and most papers at the moment.  Why, because the president didn't visit the border?  Could they not even find any Tea Partiers trying to block buses?  When Bush didn't immediately visit New Orleans after Katrina the networks carried incessant stories suggesting he was insensitive and incompetent, even Fox.

Yet aside from a few whack-jobs nobody claimed that he had actually created the storm. Clearly this president has had a hand in erecting the "y'all come" signs in Central America (note to liberals, the signs aren't real).  Meanwhile our leader has been photographed drinking beer, playing pool, and fundraising over the past 48 hours and we get zip.  But the media is still mentioning children--the ones being killed in Gaza by the evil Jews.  Talking about hearing enough of something....
