I love Sarah Palin. I was cheering her when John McCain selected her as his vice presidential nominee. She was just a far more interesting and compelling candidate than any of the stuffed shirt alternatives who were then being pushed down our throats by the staid, blue-blood GOP establishment.
I remain a Palin fan. The woman has rarified political talent and is an American phenomenon the likes of which we haven’t seen since Ronald Reagan.
That said, I am acutely and painfully aware of Palin’s political shortcomings and challenges. And I’m not sure her recent high-profile activities are helping her politically.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
