Quote of the Day

Charles Krauthammer on Palin:
When it comes to policy, she had two-and-a-half years to school herself and she hasn't and that's a problem. It's not only the lack of schooling, it's the lack of effort to school herself and the lack of insight to see that she needs it.
Yup. Granted, Krauthammer's never been Palin's biggest fan, but she seems more swept up by basking in the Jonestown-size cult of personality that surrounds her than analyzing exactly how she could avoid the questions that dogged her during the '08 campaign and why she's not getting the support of some of the old-line GOP. Her modus operandi thus far has been to preach to no one but the Tea Party/Fox News choir, which will not get her into the White House. Of course, we don't know if that's actually her goal; maybe she just wants to ride around in her bus getting paid to say the same things over and over to people that have heard every word already and believe every bit of it.*

If she really wants to run, her cultists will not be enough to win; she'll eventually have to talk to the "lamestream media" and describe to all the other registered voters exactly what a "common sense conservative solution" actually is, among other buzzwords and platitudes.

*American Dream, baby!
