If nothing else, Sarah Palin has great political skills, we are assured.
Classy, also. Is it any wonder that "most of the crowd's screams for three-quarters of the evening were incomprehensible"? Because quite a few people actually take direction from the likes of Sarah Palin.
And Sarah Palin takes her own direction from Michele Bachmann.
Once upon a time, wasn't the Republican Party respectable?
It seems to me that part of its ethos used to be based on a general distrust of politicians and their rhetoric. Now it idolizes the most untrustworthy politicians and nut-right demagogues in the country.
This Wisconsin Republican is even too ashamed to admit it.
