I know that I posted earlier about how great it would be to not have to write about Sarah Palin anymore. But this latest bit out of the circular firing squads is simply too good. Watch (here’s a transcript) as Carl Cameron explains Sarah Palin thought that Africa was a country.
You’d think that news like this might precipitate the continued decline of Sarah Palin’s unpopularity, but It seems that as the “base” of the Republican party rallies around Rush, Malkin, and the like, Palin won’t be going anywhere too fast. This will have two positive effects. First, Sarah Palin makes writing about politics easier, and second, casting Sarah Palin as standard barer for the right will hasten the marginalization of the far right.
