I guess we know what books Sarah Palin reads

via Sissy Willis:

There’s a whole army of patriotic Davids out there across this great country ready to stand up and to speak out in defense of liberty, and these Davids aren’t afraid to tell Goliath “don’t tread on me.”

That’s just one line (Sissy has more here) but consider.

That is the second time in under a month in a major presentation that she quoted Glenn Reynolds (the other was the blood libel line from his WSJ piece).

Can we assume that Sarah Palin reads Glenn Reynolds? (Some enterprising radio host should have him on his show.)

Glenn Reynolds draws between 250,000 and 500,000 hits a day and gets 30-60 posts up per day EVERY DAY. If Sarah Palin is quoting him them perhaps a wise reporter would get to know him, or a smart producer would have him on the air.

Then again I don’t expect much from the MSM, supposedly the NYT was there and couldn’t even get her meeting people after the speech right

Prospective candidates, particularly if they are courting supporters, routinely sit through dinners and mingle with guests. But in her case, Ms. Palin entered the room only for her speech and left immediately after.

Actually Palin stayed and took photos with attendees as was announced at the start of the speech. If they can’t get that detail right when they were supposedly there why would I expect them to follow-up on this kind of story.

You know there is a reason why Instapundit took down the “NYT of bloggers” comment from his site. The times should work for the day when they can be called the “instapundit of newspapers”.

Update: Conservatives for Palin notices

    Professor Reynolds is brilliant, but his on screen personality is a bit drab. He’s definitely better in print. ;)

  4. Re Dandapani,

    Yeah, he’s not as suave and watchable as the Vodkapundit or anything. Frankly, though, I just think it’s his extremely down-to-earth, not-gonna-take-myself-too-seriously vibe that you’re picking up on. And I’m glad he’s that way.

    I wouldn’t be even a little surprised if Mrs. Palin scans the Instapundit on a regular basis.

    I’m pretty positive Palin reads more and better things than Couric. To me, it’s funny when Dems go back two years to find a Palin gaffe. One barely has to go back two days to find a gaffe from Biden.
