The New Republic hits on a clever strategy to counter Palinsanity. Send out reporters to cover McCain Palin events and then write things making fun of the women they meet there, how they dress, and their children. In my experience, women really respond well to that sort of thing.
Yet, I don't want TNR to stop. I think this is useful. And it may even promote some better style sense within the GOP. Denim shorts really are outre and the sooner that gets learnt, the better. See, we are open minded.
BUT check out the comments to the TNR piece. Readers seemed not to have picked up on the condescending tone, and are saying "yeah, Sarah is great." This is just too funny, when TNR readers misread.
