Wehner, Palin And Cynicism

Pete Wehner, in self-defense against Daniel Larison, who accused him of turning on Palin only after the mid-terms, points to a July 2009 piece he wrote taking Palin to task. 

My beef goes further back. Which conservative pundit didn't know that the Palin candidacy was a farce as long ago as September 2008? Who said so publicly? Who actually voted for a ticket that included her? It seems to me that those people have some 'splainin' to do as they currently assess Palin as a threat to serious government.

That includes, by the way, figures like Peggy Noonan who was busted for an off-air open-mic blast of honesty. The rest was partisan spin. How do we know it still isn't?
