The Stoppable Sarah Palin, Ctd

Massie sides with Douthat and Larison:

[D]espite doing everything she can to appeal to the conservative base Palin is polling no better, and often worse, than Romney, Huckabee and Gingrich. She came fifth in the Values Voters Summit straw poll, winning just 7% of the votes cast. If Palin really were the undisputed front-runner we'd expect her to enjoy a lead in the polls right now. At this stage of the cycle one thing is clear: she's no Hillary Clinton. If she is the front-runner she might be the weakest GOP front-runner since Gerald Ford.
