Here’s a quote from today’s Wall Street Journal:
There is nothing more dangerous to entrenched Washington power than a populist conservative who looks unlikely to buy into Washington’s creature comforts. Take a close look at Governor Palin’s record on ethics and energy in Alaska, and it becomes clear what this Beltway outburst is actually about. The irony is that while Senator Obama is running on change, his acceptance speech made explicit that he’s promising only more power and money for Washington. Sarah Palin’s history of taking on the career politicians of a corrupt Alaskan GOP machine — her own party — shows that she’s the more authentic change agent.
Does anyone really believe that the agents of entrenched Washington power and the corrupt GOP machine would be so ardently defending Sarah Palin if they believed what they were saying to be true?
