As a patriotic American who wants what's best for my country, I was very depressed to learn that mainstream political entity and possible future president Sarah Palin jumped on the Birther bandwagon. Yet as a writer who needs a steady stream of dumbass politicos to give me essay fodder, I was thrilled. Over at the Guardian I discuss
what Palin in particular and conspiratorial idiocy in general means for the future of our once-great nation.
Disclaimer: could be I'm just pissed off because last year, Palin flagrantly ignored my attempts to land a job
with her administration.
