As I'm working today, I find things on the Internet that I just think need to be shared. Charles Krauthammer has written an excellent article about Gov. Palin and the Charlie Gibson interview. It is captioned, "Charlie Gibson's Gaffe." Read it here.

My favorite quote is this one:

"Yes, Sarah Palin didn't know what it is [referring to the "Bush Doctrine"]. But neither does Charlie Gibson. And at least she didn't pretend to know -- while he looked down his nose and over his glasses with weary disdain, sighing and "sounding like an impatient teacher," as the Times noted. In doing so, he captured perfectly the establishment snobbery and intellectual condescension that has characterized the chattering classes' reaction to the mother of five who presumes to play on their stage."

Krauthammer captures perfectly the feeling that so many of us have about Sarah Palin's treatment by establishment intellectuals. I touched on this on Friday on this blog. It is ridiculous.
