You know her tone even if you don't know her writing. It's that trademarked brand of smug condescension, dripping with derision, almost always served up by blondes of various stages of hotness, from mannish Ann Coulter to batshit loony Laura Ingraham.
According to that headshot up there, taken through what appears to be a quarter inch of vaseline, Kathleen is better looking than either of those two harridans, which makes me wonder why she doesn't get more Fox News time. After all, she has a book to sell that slams Obama.
So, maybe her voice is hard on the ears, although it would be tough to top Laura Ingraham in ear-bleeding awfulness.
Perhaps I'm being too hard on Ms. Parker, particularly since she's written something that will make her a pariah at the next Limbaugh lawn party.
She thinks Sarah Palin is unfit for office. That's right.
Here's an excerpt from her most recent column in the National Review:
"...it is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem. Quick study or not, she doesn't know enough about economics and foreign policy to make Americans comfortable with a President Palin should conditions warrant her promotion...
Palin's recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.
No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I've been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I've also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.
Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there's not much content there... If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.
...McCain can't repudiate his choice for running mate...Only Palin can save McCain, her party, and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first.
Do it for your country."
Wow. Palin should resign. That's not going to snag any invites to the spring moose hunt. But after this bit of Palinizationalism, I think Kathleen might have a point.
As Dave Letterman said, "Something doesn't smell right."
"As Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state."
