A lot of smart lefty bloggers have talked about the symbiotic relationship between Sarah Palin and the national media. The media lets people know about something ridiculous that Palin did, her fans resent the media for it, and they become more devoted to her. How does it affect this dynamic if elite media figures like David Broder start saying nice things about her?
That's not a hypothetical question.
Oh, no! Out of the Hyperborean north comes Sarah Palin, Barbarian Heroine! (Never underestimate the power of a good Mary Sure.)
Or the typo demon, it seems. That was supposed to be "Mary Sue."
At this point, does anybody other than other Post op ed columnists and editors take Broder seriously?
