On her recent visit to Israel, Sarah Palin asked — in that straightforward way of hers that makes some people’s heads explode — why we’re apologizing all the time.
My God, that’s a refreshing question.
I honestly don’t know what to think about Palin. I was convinced during the campaign that she was not up to the role she’d been assigned, but I’ve also noticed that quite often when she speaks, I’m nodding in agreement. And I can’t help but appreciate not only her unwavering support for Israel but the direct, indeed unapologetic, way she expresses it.
I’m still trying to come to a conclusion about her as a contender. As Paul Erdős would say, my mind is open.
