In Which I Substitute an Email Exchange for an Actual Post

Between me and Melissa this afternoon:
MB: I'm all fired up hearing Ross Douthat and Pat Buchanan et al saying that in 2012, Sarah Palin's quitting will all be forgotten and she’ll be the rock star. They really think we’re all idiots.

MM: The scary thing is that they could be right. Because they know themselves well enough to know that, given the right circumstances, they'd happily turn her into a rock star. Sigh.

MB: Yeah, but instead of getting Bruce Springsteen, they’re giving us Milli Vanilli.
