Hopelessly devoted to Sarah Palin
Charles Krauthammer thinks that we liberals are obsessed with Sarah Palin and that we think "she is and will always be the only representative of conservatism of any importance."
Obviously, that's not true. She may be the de facto leader of the Republican Party (move over, Dear Leader Rush), she may be the brightest Republican star (without necessarily being bright), and, with the Tea Party all around her, she may be the new mainstream of the GOP, but certainly there are other important conservatives out there. Like, um, well... Krazy Kristol and the neocons are still important, and then there's Rand Paul... uh, and James Inhofe... and...
No, she's it. For the right, she's The One.
And Americans should know that if they vote Republican and want conservatism to rule, she's what they're getting. Because she's bigger than McConnell, Cantor, and the rest of the Republicans on Capitol Hill, and she's bigger than Romney, Thune, Pawlenty, and the other wannabes for 2012.
So are we obsessed? No, just watching what's going on over on the right, often with great amusement. And I, for one, am hopelessly devoted.
This is a couple of years old, but it's still fresh, especially as we look ahead to a possible Palin presidential run. Enjoy, and have a lovely Sunday.
