Even Conservatives are Saying it: Palin is a Mess
Kathleen Parker, a columnist syndicated by the Washington Post Writers Group, is not exactly a moderate. In May, she wrote one of the more offensive columns of the entire presidential campaign, defending the notion of judging candidates' patriotism based on whether they have "blood equity" and "heritage." Obama's "bloodlines" were deemed unworthy, because they are not traced "back through generations of sacrifice." It was like reading a Know-Nothing Party tract 160 years later.
I mention this background to provide some context about Parker's ideology, before noting her latest column on Sarah Palin.
Palin's recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.
