Judge Her By Her Enemies
I was flipping through the channels and stopped on Bill O'Reilly who played some of the Sarah Palin interview and had the ubiquitous "panel"--in this case, two spokespeople--one critical of Sarah Palin, and the other somewhat more enthusiastic about her political future.
Well, you can guess that Rick Santorum likes Sarah Palin just fine, so who did they get to take the side of conservative critic of the governor?
I thought it was very interesting that O'Reilly needed to beat the bushes to find a conservative, any conservative who would be publicly critical of Palin. I'd never heard of Ms. Crittenden, but my antenna went up when I heard her speak. It sure sounded like a Canadian accent to me--southern Ontario. So I looked her up, and lo and behold, Danielle Crittenden is former Bush speech writer David Frum's wife (what kind of conservative woman doesn't take her husband's name?)
Crittenden is from old Canadian media elite, as ironically is David Frum (his mother Barbara Frum was a fixture on the evening news on the CBC...).
Sarah Palin has to feel pretty strong when the only people who will criticize her in the Republican party are Canadians...
