Quote of the Day II

Conservative writer Daniel Larison has more on the Palin-Couric interview debacle:

[Sarah Palin] is a natural product of mass democracy’s ongoing pursuit of charismatic mediocrity, in which voters not only seek someone with whom they can identify but also actively discourage politicians’ cultivation of expertise. Expertise grates against their egalitarianism, and so they try to avoid it in their political leaders.

Sarah Palin's complete invisibility from making the rounds and providing Republican spin last night speaks volumes. It is probably unprecedented in the electronic age of 24 hour news that a running mate has been sequestered from a post-debate spin cycle.
