Kathleen Parker is going to be Attacked Again

Parker was one of the first and few conservatives to point out that Sarah Palin may not really be the savior of the party. And she took a lot of heat from her fellow conservatives for failing to recognize the homespun greatness of Palin. Well, her latest article isn't likely to turn that around.
When you're up to your waders in barracuda, blame the media.

And quit your job.

And say you did it for the people.

And hire an agent.

And try to keep a straight face.

On your way to the bank.

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public, H.L. Mencken once said. Terribly elitist fellow, that Mencken. If only he were alive to witness the phenomenon of Sarah Palin, whose biography validates every cynical thought that ever found expression in his prolific prose.

Let's just say, Palin is in no danger of going broke. From her book contract alone, she never has to worry about money again, according to one close insider.
Parker isn't wrong; but I doubt expressing these sorts of opinions is going to endear her to the conservative base.
