Washington Post Explodes Myths about Palin

Saturday, 16 Oct 2010 02:23 PM

Sarah Palin is far from the caricature lampooned on "Saturday Night Live," and in reality is "a complex woman who has risen in no time from obscurity to the stratosphere of American politics, fusing celebrity and populism in novel ways." That's the portrayal of the sarah,palin,myths,election,washington,postformer Alaska governor by Matthew Continetti in an op-ed article for the Washington Post.

Continetti, the opinion editor of the Weekly Standard, debunks five myths about Palin:
  • That she cost Sen. John McCain the 2008 presidential election.
  • That she made a hasty decision to resign as governor in 2009.
  • That she and the tea party are destroying the Republican Party.
  • That she's an extremist.
  • That she has no chance of being elected president in 2012.
