Tonight Sarah Palin showed who has common sense among conservative pundits and who doesn’t.
George Will, David Brooks, David Frum, Kathleen Parker and the straggle of others like them didn’t have common sense. They were mesmerized by two interviews to forget all of Palin’s political and personal accomplishments, her socko speech at the Republican convention and crowd drawing appeal on the campaign trail.
On the other side with real common sense were: Mark Steyn, Rush, Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity, Fred Barnes, Bill Kristol, Byron York Jay Nordlinger, Brit Hume, Mara Liasson among others.
What is common sense? The ability to sift through a blizzard of bad information to find what is true. That’s also good judgment. People who have it are the people you want to have watching your back in times of struggle, distress and war.
Unfortunately not only did Will, Brooks, Frum, and Parker crash regarding insight, they also helped to wound the conservative team at a crucial time. However bright they may be, they are not the kind of people I want watching my back or my team's back. They stumbled ever so much worse than Sarah Palin, and their feet of clay remain while Palin's have been shown to be mere illusion. In reality she was rock steady.
Mark Steyn, Rush, Hugh, Sean, Fred, Bill, Byron, Jay, Brit, Mara–what comes from their lips is more golden than ever. Thank you!
