"It was like watching Gidget address the Reichstag."

Stop by Matt Taibbi's Rolling Stone article: Mad Dog Palin. It's a fine rant.

He expresses his disgust with the current administrative ploy:

After eight years of unprecedented corruption, incompetence, waste and greed, the party of Karl Rove understood that 50 million Americans would not demand solutions to any of these problems so long as they were given a new, new thing to beat their meat over.

Then he laments the idiocy of American voters as illuminated by Palin:

The truly disgusting thing about Sarah Palin isn't that she's totally unqualified, or a religious zealot, or married to a secessionist, or unable to educate her own daughter about sex, or a fake conservative who raised taxes and horked up earmark millions every chance she got. No, the most disgusting thing about her is what she says about us: that you can ram us in the ass for eight solid years, and we'll not only thank you for your trouble, we'll sign you up for eight more years, if only you promise to stroke us in the right spot for a few hours around election time.

He gets sloppy, at times losing control of his tone and the facts; choosing vitriol over substance, and occasionally quoting Palin inaccurately. But I share his dismay.
