Further Proof that Republicans Are Generally Misguided

This makes little sense:

In the aftermath of her decision to drop out and cash in, Palin’s standing in the G.O.P. actually rose in the USA Today/Gallup poll. No less than 71 percent of Republicans said they would vote for her for president. That overwhelming majority isn’t just the “base” of the Republican Party that liberals and conservatives alike tend to ghettoize as a rump backwater minority. It is the party, or pretty much what remains of it in the Barack Obama era.

Often times the blind, irrational faith of Republicans in clearly inferior and inadequate leaders is mocked by the other side. There is a reason.
