Norman Podhoretz does a nice job of contextualizing Sarah Palin and the backlash against her in certain quarters of conservatism, even citing Gormogon favorite T. Coddington van Voorhees VII. Pod the Elder comes with a position similar to many of your Gormogons’:
As for me, after more than a year of seeing how those “prodigious oratorical and intellectual gifts” have worked themselves out in action, I remain more convinced than ever of the soundness of Buckley’s quip, in the spirit of which I hereby declare that I would rather be ruled by the Tea Party than by the Democratic Party, and I would rather have Sarah Palin sitting in the Oval Office than Barack Obama.
Ah, and speaking of Norman Podhoretz, we mentioned his book Why Are Jews Liberals? Help a globe-spanning conspiracy out and buy it through our new Amazon shop if you’re gonna pick it up. Obrigado, as the Czar likes to say.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
