I've grown very weary of the freak show side of politics over the years, but I admit there's something a bit fascinating about the Palin part of the freak show. I don't mean Palin herself, I mean the news coverage of her. It isn't what it was, of course, but there was that post-2008 election period when her every utterance was a front page story (MUST CREDIT POLITICO). It was an interesting window into the minds of DC reporters who were seemingly unaware that she lost an election and would never win another one.
