Reflections on readers turned off by my dissent on Palin
LA to Evariste:
By the way, a significant number of readers, some of them long time readers and supporters, have been alienated by my stand on the Palin nomination.Evariste replies:
That’s a shame, and I’m sorry to hear it. I thought your position was sympathetic, nuanced, and perfectly respectable. She is a very compelling figure, but she should not have been the VP choice this time around given her family circumstances, and it will be a tragedy to see her mediagenic charm and personal magnetism deployed to advance John McCain’s agenda. It’s Beauty and the Beast, except she won’t be transforming this beast into a prince.
