Watching the smoke come out of Andrew Sullivan’s Ears

The latest chapter in Andrew Sullivan’s Mad Obsession with Sarah Palin.

I have — I think — said a few things about Sarah Palin in the past, notably right after her nomination. I’ve not said a lot because I don’t figure it’s worth anyone’s time to say things that others have said. And in the case of Mr. Sullivan and Josh Marshall, said it more eloquently and with good sourcing.

But I will say this to the people who, to me, seem otherwise perfectly reasonable: If you give that empty power suit in pumps any credence at all, you’re immune to reason and fact. I can’t even discuss or debate any issue of policy or politics with you, because if you believe in Sarah Palin, you’ll believe in anything. Like Mark Twain said, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”

And that’s Sarah Palin to a T — the more certain she is about something, the more likely that it just aint so. How can anyone besides the ignorant, the deluded, and the deranged think even for a moment about giving her any power or authority?
