Defending Sarah Palin

While I am not a Sarah Palin fan, I am a Sarah Palin defender. I was heartened to learn that among my tribe is one very authoritative, among conservatives anyway, Norman Podhoretz.

The poor reviews this woman routinely receives from some on our own side has puzzled me from the start of her brief career on the national stage. I, like Podhoretz, have attributed most of it to snobbery of one kind or another. That is troubling in itself. But the suicidal element that seems to energize the criticism is more than troubling, it's dangerous.
