But can he look her in the eye?

Andrew Sullivan on Sarah Palin.
She can electrify a crowd. She has the kind of charisma that appeals to the sub-rational. and she has crafted a Peronist identity - utterly fraudulent, of course - that is political dynamite in a recession with populism roiling everyone and everything. She is Coughlin with boobs - except with a foreign policy agenda to expand Israel and unite with it in a war against Islam.

Do not under-estimate the appeal of a beautiful, big breasted, divinely chosen warrior-mother as a military leader in a global religious war. Bush at least had some inkling that we need a strategy to depolarize the Muslim world and bring moderates along with us to defeat the Islamists; in my view, he genuinely believed that what happened at Abu Ghraib was wrong but couldn't break down his denial that he had authorized almost all of it (she wants more of it); his Washington Cathedral speech reflected statesmanship (Palin wants brazen projection of hard power everywhere and her election as president would represent a true crisis in any alliances that Obama has been able to rebuild).
Grow up, Andrew. You sound like a teenager. Can you look her in the eye?

Sullivan is a prime example of someone possessed by both Palin Derangement Syndrome and a hatred for Israel. Sheesh!

the left seems to be completely incapable of disagreeing with a female politician without resorting to blatant sexism. i've yet to read an article critical of palin that is not full of misogynistic comments. republican articles critical of obama never mention his penis, yet andrew mentions sarah's boobs twice in just the two paragraph snippet that you posted. how can a person possibly have any respect for the left?
