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.

I think anyone who’s alienated will come around as the logic of the situation plays itself out. The nomination is inappropriate and your only sin is pointing it out.
