MSNBC gives Sarah Palin a little too much credit in my opinion.
Palin has always wanted to be taken seriously without having to try very hard, AND without risking the chance of being revealed as a lightweight phony who is tragically unqualified for whatever she is attempting to pass herself off as these days. Be that as a good mother, a political pundit, or a serious candidate for office.
I am not at all thrilled to see ANYBODY taking Palin even remotely seriously, especially my favorite news organization, and I appreciate that Dana Milbank put things into perspective.
Look, Palin is going to make a correct choice once in awhile, it is just the law of averages, but that certainly does not mean that HER endorsement had much to do with Fischer's upset, nor does it mean ANYTHING in the upcoming election against Bob Kerrey.
As it so happens Fischer was the least known candidate, with the least amount of baggage, much like Palin herself was when SHE was elected Governor of Alaska. And we all know how that worked out.
Palin may be riding high right now, having accidentally stumbled onto a winning endorsement this time, but considering Palin's track record this high is unlikely to last very long.
That reminds me, just how is Christine O'Donnell these days?
