As is so often the case, just when you’ve lost almost all faith in the wisdom of the American populace, something comes along to cheer you up a bit.


The latest example is a survey co-sponsored by Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal, no less, in which a majority of Americans say they would prefer that a certain unsuccessful politician keep her thoughts to herself at least for a while.


The story is HERE:


According to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Public Policy Center survey, Americans would like to tell Sarah Palin, Jesse Jackson and Dick Cheney that it is time to be quiet.


More than 40% of Americans are tired of them. Ms. Palin gets the dubious distinction of 52% wishing her to fade away, including almost 2 out of 5 conservatives and Republicans.


For Mr. Cheney the verdict also is harsh, with 42% wanting him to be quiet, and even a quarter of the Cheney base of conservatives and-tea party voters have heard enough.
