The Palin effect

In the new issue of the Weekly Standard, Noemie Emery’s very interesting article on “The Palin effect” takes a stab at interpreting the deranged assault of the Democratic/Media Complex on Sarah Palin:

Somehow, every element of her life–the dual offense of being a beauty-queen and hunter; the Down syndrome baby who wasn’t aborted; the teenage daughter about to get married, whose baby also wasn’t aborted; the non-metrosexual husband working the nightshift; the very fact of five children–touched a nerve on the liberal template, and sent the whole beast into convulsions, opening an intriguing and somewhat frightening window onto the turbulent id of the left.
