I think Ms. Pollitt is jealous and intimidated by Sarah Palin. Not only is Palin good-looking, which Katha mocks and should be jealous of, but Palin rose to governorship of the largest state on a Idaho (non-Ivy League) degree, while supporting motherhood, and without the help of a rich father/husband. If left alone in the woods, she'd survive, whereas Ms. Pollitt would most likely become food.
Reference "political Barbie" and try to destroy her all you want. It won't change the fact that Sarah Palin is not stupid, and is not going away.
Do I want her for president, not really, but she could do less damage then The One.
