But what I do find genuinely intriguing is what the Palin diehards have been saying. You have, for example, the good people of Conservatives 4 Palin comparing the Alaska governor's resignation to Julius Caesar. And you have Bill Kristol speculating that her gamble could turn out to be quite shrewd. This strikes me as sociologically interesting. If her resignation -- which was a really a halting ramblefest -- doesn't shake the faith, what will?
