The New York Times has weighed in on the Quitter. Timothy Egan’s opinion piece in today’s Times has some choice bits:
Palin has the attention span of a hummingbird on a nectar jag.
WC is a birder, and it’s unfair to malign the family of hummingbirds by comparing them to Caribou Barbie, but it’s still a good line. However, this one is better:
[T]he dubious character trifecta of the Palin brand: bone-headed, defiant and willfully ignorant.
Burned. Nailed with a single sentence. Egan concludes,
It’s early in the campaign season, but these car wrecks on the Palin highway are piling up. As for the Palin brand, it seems to represent no consistent philosophy, no guiding principles, no remedial vetting. It stands for one thing — Palin — and in that sense, she does have a legacy, though it can only be measured in dollars.
We can hope.
