Here's the deal: DON'T YOU EVER mention Sarah Palin's name without having a chyron floating beneath you that says,
FULL DISCLOSURE: WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HER TO GET RATINGS. OBVIOUSLY THIS WOMAN HAS NO QUALIFICATIONS TO HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE.
It's missing from this amazing, and I mean that in a bad way, clip from Heather at C&L, who also summarizes:
Matthews and Buchanan... describe the Palin and Bachmann rally and their featured speakers as...an amazing event...very fascinating political figures... very good on the stump... much more exciting than Mitch McConnell or John Boehner... the new "star power" of the Republican Party... dazzling... dynamite... extremely attractive women... rodeo queens...
Jerking off to her "appeal" is no way to be a self-respecting pundit, Chris. When you neglect the obvious facts, you look, well, as mentally out of touch as, you know, Pat Buchanan.
That is all.
