Crazy Aunt, Unleashed

Views

I’m not sure it’s really right to call Sarah Palin a politician. She’s more like a new breed of non-office-holding politico-celebrity. Or maybe not a new breed. However that may be, we’ve got more evidence of why Sarah Palin is crack for the GOP: gives a real jolt, is fun and addictive, and is really, really bad for your health.

In an interview she just did with the National Review, in the process of explaining why “death panel” was just a figure of speech, she managed to insult (or at least showed she misunderstood the meaning of) the Sainted Ronald Reagan and then called for a Hoffmanite primary challenge to Sen. Lindsey Graham.
