Arkansas Republicans react to the choice of Sarah Palin somewhat like I would do in attempting to be polite about a friend’s odd choice of restaurant/vacation destination/etc.

Umm. That restaurant in Lower Slobbovia? The whipped chinchilla butter? Interesting. Very interesting. Unconventional. I’m sure you considered all other choices carefully before deciding this was the best option. Unusual.

Columnist Doug Thompson thinks
, however, that she’s a boffo choice for McCain in Arkansas. Which suggests Doug has a mighty low opinion of the Arkansas voter.


Brummett recalls Dan Quayle. He may have been no Jack Kennedy, but he was on the winning ticket.
