Sometimes I surprise myself. But I never, never thought I would be urging people to read these conservative columnists: George Will, Charles Krauthammer, David Frum and Ross Douthat. Today, I cross that line. Google up these guys and see what they have been saying about one of their own—Sarah Palin.

Read David Brooks today. You’ll be glad you did.
