I've studiously avoided the argument between Joshua Green and Andrew Sullivan about Sarah Palin. Josh believes that Palin is a harmless, if demagogic, publicity and fame hound. Sullivan believes that Palin is a nefarious genius who intends to run for president. Somewhere in the middle of all this is a position I also abstain from, which is that Palin is brilliant, period.
Enigmatic and interesting, I'll give her that. Today, Palin gives ammo to all three interpretations. She's decided to endorse Carly Fiorina in the contested Republican Senate primary in California. Whaa? Shouldn't she have endorsed Chuck DeVore's bid? DeVore is a Tea Party conservative; he was one before the term existed.
