The feminists declare that [Sarah Palin is] not a real woman because she doesn’t hew to their rigid categories. People who’ve never been in a Wal-Mart think she is parochial because she has never summered in Tuscany.
Still, this debate was about Sarah Palin. She held up her end of an energetic debate that gave voters a direct look at two competing philosophies. She established debating parity with Joe Biden. And in a country that is furious with Washington, she presented herself as a radical alternative.
[Sarah Palin] represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party.
This is what happens when your salt-of-the-Wal-Mart fetish collides with your terror of life outside of an oligarchy.
