After reading the relentless moist-panty adoration of Sarah Palin from such intellectual snack bars as Blogging Tories "Hunter" and "Dodo," it's refreshing to note that even right-wing wanknut David Frum has finally let reality smack him in the face with a wet halibut:
Matthew Continetti has an article in the Weekly Standard magazine hailing Sarah Palin as the ideal leader of a new populist uprising. One obvious objection to his thesis: The populist Sarah is in fact one of the most unpopular figures in American life.
According to Gallup, 63% of Americans say they would never consider voting for her. By a margin of 62%-31%, Americans rate Palin "unqualified" to serve as president -- by far the worst score for any leading Republican...
Palin supporters have constructed an alternative reality in which their heroine is wildly cheered by the American yeomanry, and despised only by a small coterie of sherry-drinking snobs. No contrary evidence, no matter how overwhelming and uncontradicted, can alter this view: not the collapse in Palin's support in just five weeks in 2008, not the statistical studies that show her as the only vice-presidential nominee in history to have hurt her ticket, not her rampant unpopularity with American women, not her own flinching from a second encounter with the Alaskan electorate.
And let's not forget Sawah's disastrous interference in NY-23.
So ... Hunter? Dodo? You keep on huffing the paint thinner over there at Stephen Taylor Central. Cuz we progressives can't get enough of The Quitbull. Sarah Palin in 2012! Really. I'm serious.
