No Basement Here

Sarah Palin says it’s all the bloggers’ fault.

Ms. Palin directed most of her media criticism at liberal bloggers, whom she twice called, “those bloggers in their parents’ basement just talkin’ garbage.”

Just to be clear, I live in South Florida — where nobody has a basement — and my parents live in Ohio. I leave it to others to decide if I was “just talkin’ garbage.” I actually thought that most — not all, mind you, but most — of the liberal blogosphere focused on Ms. Palin’s breathtaking lack of qualifications to be the vice president and how that reflected on the judgment of John McCain. Some even went so far as to point out and condemn sexism and misogyny when it was directed at her.

But she’s entitled to whatever rationalization she can come up with for why the ticket lost… and continue with her tour of shameless self-promotion. The Bush administration obviously hasn’t taken away the right to make a fool of oneself.
