MC Graham on Sarah Palin: her fall from grace, her stubborn persistence in the media, and how Liberals aren’t hating her and general cultural regression enough. Salient bits:
Fortunately, most people don’t like Palin. She lost a considerable amount of political capital after her humorlessly self-important response to the shooting in AZ, which was a rather odd mis-step for her to make. Public tragedies are like a religion for Americans.
I think that she honestly doesn’t know the Paul Revere myth, or couldn’t recall the details of a straightforward children’s story under pressure, which is sad, and should disqualify her from working on a small-town early evening news program let alone as Commander-in-Chief, but her word salad, vaguely populist speech patterns are nothing new. Actually, they are simply what she is.
