Here's a level-headed analysis* of Sarah Palin's teabagger speech:
Sarah Palin said a number of things with which any conservative could heartily agree - but these were for the most part glittering generalities without specifics.
Downsizing government was mentioned without examples of how or what to downsize. She talked about getting government to live within its means but there was no talk about eliminating the bureaucracy needed to lower taxes [...]
So true! But here's the rub: the above was written by the CEO of the John Birch Society. The lesson learned is that Sarah Palin is so wacky and content-free that she makes the Birchers –the Birchers!– seem rational and profound by comparison.
Also: she will now view them as her mortal enemies (among many) FOREVER.
*Well, not completely; just the part I quoted.
