Just received from reader Jeff: The latest, desperate plea from Obama’s Palin-bashing backers at Us Weekly magazine to stop the bleeding. (You’ll recall that on Sep 5., I posted the first groveling missive from the rag’s customer service department urging readers to read the smear-filled article before canceling. Oops. Bad advice.)
They are on their knees:
