So it goes

From yesterday's Guardian Diary by Hugh Muir:

Exciting times indeed, but at the end of the day, people will say that it was the lady wot did for the defeated candidate. She tried to help, and many conservative types were energised by her, but ultimately her brashness, the simplicity of her arguments and her willingness to peddle strange and frantic tales about the president-elect did John McCain no good. In time, the Republican - a decent old cove underneath it all - will be able to make his peace with Melanie Phillips. So will Sarah Palin. But until then, Melanie may feel a certain responsibility for his heavy loss. No doubt it will hurt.

Anyone who doubts Mad Mel's propensity to "peddle strange and frantic tales" about Barack Obama need only Google "Obama" and "Melanie Phillips" to see just how much Hugh Muir understates reality.
