What Sarah Palin Knows

It's easy to poke fun of Sarah Palin, especially when it comes to political knowledge.  To balance the score, I point out this Wall Street Journal column and its eloquent defense of Palin.  It ends by paraphrasing an infamous quote by William F. Buckley, saying: the spirit of which I hereby declare that I would rather be ruled by the Tea Party than by the Democratic Party, and I would rather have Sarah Palin sitting in the Oval Office than Barack Obama.
Not saying I necessarily agree, but the author, Norman Podhoretz, offers a spirited comparison between Palin and a conservative's most favored prez, Ronald Reagan.  And it's a point well worth considering.
