Nation columnist Naomi
appears along with Air America‘s Ana Marie Cox on the
Joy Behar Show to add to the growing consensus that there’s not much of
a “whole” in the sum of Sarah Palin’s many parts. Klein’s assessment of
Palin as something created in the basement of The Heritage Foundation
seems to pin down the fact that Palin is overly engineered, and that we
are witnessing her public malfunctioning. In addition, Klein draws a
parallel to the familiar reality-TV narrative of “country mouse goes to
the big city” as an explanation for why we follow the drama–a drama
that might resemble a presidential campaign but will not, ultimately, be
able to amount to one.
