Because it bears saying

Regular Bleakonomy readers (bless you) know that I have no love for Sarah Palin. None. Zero. Nada.

That being said, I think Andrew Sullivan has gone kind of off the deep end about her. I dig that she's a lying liar, and that it's a cause of constant amazement that her pants do not literally burst into flame at any given moment. I understand. But I think her chances of being taken seriously as a national politician are slim, and growing slimmer, and the amount of attention he is paying to her seems all out of proportion.

And maybe only a fellow gay man can say this, but I have a pretty strong suspicion that he would not be so very pro-Levi Johnston in his inane smack-down against quondam governor Palin were it not for the fact that Levi is a very attractive man. (And Andrew certainly isn't making any efforts to hide his attraction.) The whole thing is unseemly, and I'm not sure it's a great use of The Atlantic's bandwidth for so much notice to be given by its most prominent voice.

Just sayin'.

  1. The erstwhile governor has certainly gotten inside the OODA loops of many leftist pundits. What do they hope to accomplish by keeping her in the public spotlight? I mean, it is really, really difficult to buy this level of publicity, and she's getting it gratis.
