Like a broken clock, Hitchens occasionally gets it about right

At least he provides a description of some of the more egregious exemplars of anti-intellectualism in US political life. If only he hadn't been such a big fan of Junior Caligula back in the day - now there is a ruler whose lack of basic intellectual curiosity is legendary, and if only he weren't merely cheerleading for Empire's other would-be ruler. Of course it's difficult to entirely gauge how much of Palin's apparent ignorance is genuinely willful and how much of it is just a pose to play up to the much-ballyhooed "Base" (of which many examples of willful ignorance abound thanks to the miracle of the Internet tubes).
