Didn’t we learn anything from Sarah Palin?

Every time I think about candidates like Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle, and Carl Paladino, I’m reminded of a quote from Hunter S. Thompson about Ross Perot:

Ross Perot was the best thing that happened in American politics since Richard Nixon acquired a taste for gin. In both cases, the political dialogue of the day was enriched by spontaneous gibberish that entertained the wrong people and made the right ones question their faith.

The Tea Party movement is just Perot II: Lunatic Boogaloo. It’s the same ignorant, incoherent populism and nonsense, and it’s had about the same effect on people at large. The problem is, this time around the GOP establishment aren’t questioning their faith. They’re marching in lockstep with the idiocy because they’re desperate to win. That’s how we end up with someone going to a debate at a law school without even knowing what the hell the Constitution says.
