E.D. Kain defends my vigilance toward her:
Regardless of her electoral chances, Palin is nonetheless a bellwether of sorts a bizarre prophet of the right a John the Baptist for American conservatism. Sharron Angle is proof of that. I worry more about her successor than the once-and-sort-of-former Governor of Alaska. Someone who is just as crazy but a better salesman a well spoken, intelligent lunatic, at once charismatic and fiercely merican.
