Now of course to the neoconservative brain trust this atrocious piece of rhetoric and her obvious ignorance of the English language used to create it are just evidence of Sarah Palin's working-class, everywoman "real America"-ness while at the same time they also prove her rebellious maverickiness and just how politically savvy she really is. Oh, and the fact that I've written this post and actually dared to say anything negative about her abilities is also proof of my own misogyny and innate liberal fear of her and hatred for every one of the "traditional" values she represents. Just ask them.
