The Sarah Palin book-tour-apalooza kept trucking along this week. After rogue interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters, Sarah took to the airwaves with a man who not only liked her book, but called it
One of the most substantive policy books I've read
And that is no small praise considering it's coming from the leader of the Republican party, Rush Limbaugh.
We are excited to have obtained an extended cut of the interview where two of the Republicans biggest policy wonks get together and talk policy... Substantive policy! Take a look.
One of the more revealing moments came after the interview where Rush explained Palin's appeal. He said
The intellectuals don't understand her, don't like her. She doesn't analyze herself. She doesn't analyze her thoughts; she just has them and expresses them.
Damn right! Republicans don't want women who analyze things! Leave the analyzing for the damn intellectuals! Palin doesn't think! She blurts! She reacts! She rapidly expels those synapses from her brain, and maybe they make sense, maybe they don't. But it doesn't matter. And you know why? Because conservatives understand her. They understand her and her substantive policies. And if the rest of us don't? Well, I guess we're just not "rogue" enough.
