Sykes: Palin will reform the GOP...

…as for the country, umm, I’m guess they’ll get back to us on that one:

Democrats repeatedly and forcefully tried to frame the campaign's narative as a rejection of four more years of George W. Bush. By choosing Sarah Palin Mccain (sic) is signalling (sic) his own counter-narrative: Reform.

Take out Palin's gender and you have a compelling Mr. (Mrs.) Smith Goes to Washington story. The Wall Street Journal calls it a Reform ticket designed to transform the GOP brand.

Take out the typos, and what you’re left with is this: Sarah Palin, according to Sykes and the Wall Street Journal, is a good choice for the Republican Party.

And while I certainly think the GOP is in need of reform, it seems doubtful that most Americans will reward the party’s sudden self-awareness by putting Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Note--Blogger seems determined to fix Sykes' spelling errors.
