    I find the wave of hatred and contempt toward Sarah Palin puzzling. She's an interesting person who seems to like taking risks. However, I neither love her nor hate her.

    I wonder if much of her popularity comes precisely out of leftist vilification campaigns against her. She has a journalism degree from the University of Idaho. I may be biased against journalism degrees, but I regard a journalism degree from Idaho as just as more valid than a journalism degree from Columbia. It's more valid because Idaho isn't known for promoting a snotty attitude among its graduates.

    The funny thing about Sarah Palin is that her cultural power is directly proportional to the extent she is treated with contempt. Anybody who remembers how Ann Richards became the Governor of Texas would know why. She didn't win the race back in 1990. Clayton Williams lost it by not treating her like a lady. Four years later, George W. Bush defeated Ann Richards when he showed better manners.

    I don't think there are many leftists who are willing to learn lessons from the political career of George W. Bush.
