Literary Editor of The New Republic
Today's Gold Star came out of left field. Well, actually, it was an article on The New Republic's website, but you know what I mean.
Here was Wieseltier speaking about the McCain/Palin fiasco:
"McCain feels with his heart, but he thinks with his base. And when he picked Sarah Palin, he told the United States of America to go fuck itself."
This is, without a doubt, the best description of the Palin selection that I've heard. Way to go, Mr. Wieseltier.
