    of the right-wing punditocracy is to keep throwing out yet another new and ridiculous charge against Obama every time the current "furor" has died down (have we forgotten about the scary Indonesian madrassas already?).  None of these "charges" are expected to stick, but over the course of the next year, there's likely to be ju-u-u-st enough residual effect to knock Obama down a peg in the eyes of many potential voters.

    Right now, Obama's negatives in the polls are extremely low for a major candidate running for president.  The right will do everything it possibly can to drive those numbers higher, ideally to a level where the traditional media begins to ask whether he's still "electable".  Once that meme begins to circulate widely, potential supporters (big-money donors, in patricular) will begin to back away, and the right will begin to set up another place in their trophy cabinet.
