Here’s another roundup of some of the comments I’ve received recently:
Further proof of just how deep opinions run about Sarah Palin, there was much reaction to my post on her farewell speech in Alaska on Sunday, in particular the notion that it was incoherent.
Commenter Sharise Parviz wrote: “What she is saying is pretty darn clear to me. but when the only “rolling up your sleeves” your used to is when you are purchasing your lattes from starbucks, I can see how you missed the point.”
Commenter Tim Hathaway of NC wrote: “If this isn’t EXACTLY the same type of snobbish, snarky, pseudo-intelligent hackery that Sarah and most conservatives have been fighting against for years then I don’t know what is. It still floors me just how much the majority of people in entertainment and the press just don’t get it.
Commenter Greg wrote: “Actors and actresses become famous pretending to be things, Sarah Palin is something, no pretending necessary. It’s really great that the video of her speech is widely available so people can judge for themselves, instead of having to depend on some morons interpretation of what she said. Just like the announcement of her resignation, I found this speech perfectly understandable.”
Commenter Bjesquire wrote: “She’s a quitter and as a politician she’s finished. Criticism of Sarah isn’t snarky snobbery: she couldn’t handle being governor of a state with the population the size of Indianapolis. She’s blames all of her problems on everyone else.”
Commenter Wordygirl had this to say about Chuck Todd’s lamentation of partisan “journalists” like Glenn Beck, et al.: “Yeah, that First Amendment stuff is really a drag….”
