If Sarah Palin thought resigning as Alaska's governor would end the media attacks upon her and her family, she badly underestimated the power of Palin Derangement Syndrome.
Take for example Paul Begala's demented Huffington Post offering Friday in which he referred to the former Vice Presidential candidate as "the bull goose loony of the GOP."
Sadly, that was one of his kinder descriptions:
Sarah Palin makes Mark Foley, the congressman who sent filthy emails to pages look almost normal. She makes David Vitter, the senator who was hanging out with hookers, look almost boring. She makes Larry Craig, caught hitting on a cop in a men's room, look almost stable. She makes John Ensign, the senator who was having an affair with a staffer, look almost humdrum (and compared to the rest of the GOP whack-jobs, he is). And she makes Mark Sanford, the governor with the Latin lover, look positively predictable.
It was an almost impossible mission, but in resigning from office with 17 months to go in her first term, Sarah Palin has made herself the bull goose loony of the GOP. [...]
I'm no latter-day Strunk & White, just a guy who was struck by Palin's spectacularly rambling and infantile prose. It bespeaks a rambling and infantile mind.
What's that expression concerning the pot and the kettle?
