Politico editors are push-overs
Apparently if Republicans write enough angry letters about a Politico piece, Politico will print the letters and make them the lead item on its website. (Who knew?)
That's exactly what Politico just did. After it published a tough Saturday column  by Jim Vandehei and John Harris suggesting McCain's VP pick was an act of desperation, on Sunday the duo returned and turned over  all kinds of Politico real estate to angry Republican readers, reprinting letter after letter after letter explaining why Palin was a fantastic choice.
It looks to us like a classic example of Beltway journalists being so easily spooked by conservative critics.
