More Palin Derangement Syndrome


Lee Siegel’s otherwise interesting essay on culture and politics in the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal is marred by some bizarre and incomprehensible anti-Palin spasms:

“In this climate, what might seem to be Gov. Palin’s blatant struggles with inadequacy serve as proof of her potential to lead. She wins the vicarious sweepstakes hands down. Every revelation of a seeming deficiency in her temperament, judgment or character offers a new avenue of access into her life.”

“[I]n Sen. Obama’s elevated way of thinking and speaking, he cannot touch what seem to be the mean, petty, vindictive, narrow-minded hockey mom’s achievements in the realm of sheer human messiness.”
