Mitt Can’t Ignore Sarah

So says the always interesting English observer of Republican politics, Tim Stanley. And he’s right about Palin being a towering figure in the Republican party, though out of office and unpopular with the GOP establishment. This is due not to her ideology–she’s a thoroughgoing warmonger and statist under the neocon thumb of Bill Kristol–but her style and class. Ron Paul, I might note, is hated by the entire establishment, GOP and otherwise, for being the anti-neocon, and for his populism, too.

Rom can’t ignore Ron, but Ron can  certainly ignore Rom. Mitt is, after all, in all his various  incarnations, always Mr. Un-Paul.
