Andrew Sullivan Makes a Prediction

Andrew Sullivan today predicts that in 2012 the Palin model of full media isolation and epistemic closure will be picked up as a strategy across the Republican candidate spectrum:

Palin led the way by refusing any real scrutiny and any press conference as an unknown running for vice-president! In the next cycle, we’ll see no GOP pols going on anything but Fox and Facebook.

In other words, in 2012 unlimited money and spin is what we’ll call the “democratic deliberative process.”

Aside from the impressive Jeffersonian dignity with which our first black President comports himself, and the quality of our great research universities, and our Constitution with its legal guarantees of freedom and wise separation of powers, what’s left of this country that stands out from the rest of the world as really worthy of emulation?

    Go with what works. It’s not about right or wrong, it’s all about winning or losing. Arizona has already stated they won’t put Obama’s name on the ballot because he has yet to show them his real birth certificate. I wish I were kidding. Sarah Palin will be our next President, those that like her but don’t feel she’s got the smarts will say she’ll surround herself with good advisors.
    Again, I wish I were kidding.

    I wish you were not kidding either. But to the fox followers the facts just don’t matter.
