Dangers of punditry

Maybe it’s because some of them appear on so many TV shows for far too many minutes. But lots of pundits just can’t stop the stupid.

 

She [Sarah Palin] did have a pretty good night, and I certainly defend her, and anybody, endorsing a candidate not on the pragmatic grounds that they are going to win, but because you believe in their positions and don’t believe in her opponent's positions. That is why she presumably endorsed Christine O’Donnell against Mike Castle, a moderate to liberal Republican. But on the subject of Sarah Palin in 2012, one of the unspoken problems that she does have is her quitting as governor midway through her first term. It is like Ted Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick. It was not a problem among Democrats. It will be a problem when she runs for president because it is a higher threshold for the office. [emphasis added]

Yeah, it’s exactly like Chappaquiddick – except for the dead body at the bottom of the river.
