That's it!

I knew a toddler once who, every time she soiled her nappy, said "Good girl" to herself, as a form of reassurance. She'd be playing or drawing and pause, then say "Good girl", and you knew she needed to be changed. It was touching and useful.

I'd been trying to figure out what the barrage of comment from the left reminded me of - the barrage of remarks about how Sarah Palin was a disaster for the GOP, a scandal-ridden embarrassment, how the Republican vetting process has failed, or didn't exist.

That's what it reminds me of. That little girl. Only in this case, the ordure has been dumped on the self-reassurers by their political opponents.
