    PHOTOS: Sarah Palin's Tea Party rally on the Boston Common.

    The Tea Party Express rally on the Boston Common this morning was basically a travelling show, complete with the official buses displaying the featured performers' faces and names, and the booth selling merchandise in the back. Could have been one of those -paloozas, except that it was pretty badly managed, operationally: the stage was low, so the press riser blocked almost everybody's view of the stage, and the sound system was woefully inadequate, so most of the attendees could barely hear the speeches.

    You know how in school you might have a boy who's the class clown, and always needs to be the center of attention? And if someone else in the class starts getting attention the boy feels threatened, and does the most outrageous thing he can think of, to get the attention back?

    I bring this up because, just since Sarah Palin began her new gig as FOX News contributor, first Rush Limbaugh and now Glenn Beck have made obviously outrageous, attention-grabbing comments about the news item of the week, Haiti.

    Since the start of 2009, I’ve been updating these rankings every two months. (Most recently here.) I’m going to stick with that schedule for now -- but things are going to really start heating up. After all, we’re just a year away from Romney, Pawlenty et al declaring their candidacies.

    How can I know when they’ll declare? I’ll explain.
