I keep hearing that Sarah Palin is the future of the GOP. Fred Barnes is just the latest Republican to gush all over her.
But the fact is, the more people see of Sarah Palin, the less attractive she becomes. Polls are making that clear.
And the evidence is right out there on the stump. Watch the above clip from Missouri (or any of Palin's recent appearances).
Is it just me, or is Palin starting to sound like a drowned cat at the bottom of a well?
I know some of this is just my political bias kicking in, but it seems to me her voice has gone from merely grating to an outright assault on the human nervous system.
This might be the most insidious plot ever devised by Republicans: If they can't win, they'll spend the next four years just driving us insane.
