And -- of course, this is wildly off topic, but have you noticed? -- how much conservative pundits (mostly men) dislike Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann? I almost think that, having spent their careers commenting on and observing politics, and growing gray and weak-eyed in the process, they really resent their thunder and their punditry and their relevance being stolen by moms with long brown hair.
"Bachmann panders to conservative intellectuals," Commentary
"One if by land, two if by sea, three if by Palin," Commentary
To be fair, both these columns above were written by the same man (yay for fact-checking!), but I have a vague sense that my point holds. Maybe that's why I'm not a pundit, and am also a mom with long-ish brown hair. .
