Another conservative comes out against Palin, but as I stated when Parker's opposition was revealed, it is far too little, far too late. Conservatives like Parker and Fridersdorf are of the ilk of conservatives who continue to insist there is some ideological purity to the Republican Party that is compromised by Palin, while at the same time they have stoked the idiocy of the 27% or less of Americans who think President Bush is one of the greatest Presidents ever because he goes with his gut, mispronounces and stumbles over the English language, and is someone you could have a beer with. Palin is merely the end-product of that nonsense, and a reminder that cultural conservatives would do well to read all of the book who they base so much of their policy-making on: "...whatever a man sows, that he will also reap." Sow stupidity, reap lost elections. Most of Palin's supporters regard her as "one of us", but they don't seem to realize that many Americans don't want anyone like them near the reigns of power again.
