Christopher Hitchens in Slate:
I think [the Democrats are making a mistake] in the attempt to paint the Palin family as if it were Arkansas on ice or Tobacco Road with igloos and Inuit. Very well, she possibly has had her Troopergate and even trailer-park moments. But whom exactly did the Democrats drown in moist applause, for two nights running, in Denver? The most dysfunctional family ever to occupy not the vice-presidential mansion but the executive one. It's hard to imagine that there will be any more unwanted pregnancies or shotgun weddings when or if the Palins move to the Naval Observatory on Massachusetts Avenue, whereas with the Clintons, the very thing that made all Bill's friends turn white and pee green was that they made him the president, and he still wouldn't stop

It's the hypocrisy thing, e.g., "don't teach sex ed," "abstinence only" while she and daughter are doing sex outside the "Christian" tradition.

I think that's been incredibly obvious from the rest of the Genyus's posts.

Some people just need someone beside them ready to provide a necessary bitch-slapping upside the head on a constant basis. S/He's a prime candidate.

When your mind is inadequate, turn to physical violence, obloody. Obviously, looking at the history of civilization, physical violence is the best way to make your point.

You might want to consider turning your physical violence against yourself where it belongs. Sorry you did not get your fair share of brain cells.
