From Will Wilkinson:
That Palin reminded my of my school teachers is a matter of her acquired manner and the assumptions beneath them, a matter of her Upper-Midwest-sounding accent. I’m from a small town. She’s from a small town! And damn straight: people who study at the University of Idaho (which is, in fact, where my sister is currently studying law) are every bit as smart as all you snide elitist Ivy League cosmoplitans!
I have to agree with Will that Palin is incredibly likable, and not just because she went to my alma matter. She exudes a type of feminine confidence that is familiar and comforting. I’m very much looking forward to her debate with Biden. I’ll have to save for another day a discussion on the economics of school prestige.
