I was reading the comments section on Slate’s article, “Is Krystal Ball the Left’s Answer to Sarah Palin?”, and strongly agreed with the following.
What a ridiculous premise. A “Liberal Sarah Palin” defies all logic. Additionally, she would have to have an IQ of 80.
I also liked:
She has to be a lot stupider and speak in incomprehensible babble for her to be “the left’s answer to Sarah Palin.
Can she speak English? Yes? Well then don’t compare her to Sarah Palin.
And finally, I like this one:
…unless KB is as vacuous, ill-informed, derisive of others’ accomplishments and uninterested in government except as a means to power and self-gain, she’s nothing like Sarah Palin. There’s nothing wrong with using one’s experience, as a woman, mother, whatever, to inform one’s agenda and campaign platform. As someone who despises Palin, I have no issues with KB admiring Palin for acknowledging her gender or her experiences as a mother, or even using those as arguments for her campaign. The problem comes with Palin’s defensiveness, sneering and empty preening about pit-bulls and mama grizzlies.
In short, stupid article; great comments section!
