Sarah Palin is nothing more...

...than a female Mike Huckabee. Yes, she'll be the darling of the Religious Right for the next four years, but she'll never get the Republican nomination. She only appeals to the twenty-something percent that still approves of the job George W. Bush is doing (who are those people, anyway? Does anyone out there know any of them?). After Mike Huckabee won the Iowa caucus and was enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame, David Brooks was asked about his chances of winning the nomination. Brooks, who comes across as a truly nice man, essentially dismissed him by saying that "he doesn't believe in evolution." This is the same sort of thing that will ultimately do in Sarah Palin. She's kind of a modern-day Charles Lindberg and will go down in history as an asterisk.
