You all know that I don’t think Sarah Palin’s remotely qualified to be president and I surely don’t think she’s the next Margaret Thatcher. But this Vanity Fair hit job makes me sympathize fulsomely with those who support her simply out of indignation with the snobbery of her critics. Are we really supposed to take seriously the damning inditement that she signs her books with an Autopen? That she jokes about wearing push-up bras to get what she wants? (Find me a woman who hasn’t made that joke.) That she makes the same speech over and over? (It’s called a stump speech.) That her teenage kids call her a phony? (Whose don’t?)
