Best Punditry Ever

Daniel Larison wins the brass ring for this gem:

Were the Republicans to nominate for President one Mr. Camacho (warning: some profanity) and a journalist said something unflattering about his grasp of the finer points of agricultural policy, you can already hear the refrains of ”they also said Reagan was a dunce” and “who expects a candidate to know everything about price supports or to know the name of the agriculture minister of Peru?”  (Of course, no one ever asks Palin questions that are anywhere near that detailed.)  It’s as if there is no objective way to compare different candidates, so conservatives have to rely on the extent of media hostility to determine their candidates’ merits.

Watch the clip. ‘Nuff said.
