The Palin Situation
I have a kind of strange fascination with Andrew Sullivan's deeply held obsession with Sarah Palin. Reading him stew about her, however intermittently (which is how I do it), is like watching one of those single subject documentaries about some kind of isolated savant dedicated to one obscure subject -- like cardamom or the decline of the semi-colon. Anyhow, today on Sullivan I read this quote on Sullivan from Matt Taibi about Palin and how she appeals to people in a very visceral way and it seems spot on if also a cause for despair for our political system.
