Two Good Lines

The Washington Post has a front-pager on Palin’s reception in Alaska since the election. It has two good lines. One comes from a critic, one from the governor.

The critic:

Palin’s greatest problems in Alaska, as in the rest of the country, seem to be with her fellow Republicans. “What did I say about her during the campaign when somebody asked me if she was qualified?” asked state Rep. John Harris, taking a moment to ponder his own question, smiling. “Oh, I said something like ‘She’s old enough and a registered voter.’ ” Another smile.


In a written statement, Palin said [Texas Gov. Rick] Perry “walks the walk of a true conservative. And he sticks by his guns — and you know how I feel about guns.”

Hers is better (whoever wrote it).
