I had to chuckle while reading George F. Will's Feb. 18 column ("Sarah Palin vs. the Press"). In describing Ms. Palin, Mr. Will states that "grit is no substitute for seasoning."
Oh, how true! We are finding that out firsthand with every passing day of this new administration. Mr. Will says the Republican Party "has become ruinously weak among highly educated whites." I think he might want to check the recent results in Virginia, New Jersey and "hallowed Kennedy" turf in Massachusetts. It seems as if every Democrat in the Senate who is up for re-election in the fall is either retiring or just deciding not to run.
I'm not sure that Sarah Palin is the answer, but I am sure she will continue to speak the truth. That is something that is obviously lacking with this "change we can believe in" gang. It is changing all right -- in the wrong direction.
