It’s Camille Paglia time again.
Posted by sanityinjection on October 8, 2008
Camille Paglia’s monthly column over at Salon.com is something I genuinely look forward to. This month is largely devoted to answering readers’ e-mails. Paglia discusses the Sarah Palin phenomenon at length; she finds much to admire about Governor Palin and her husband while noting that she does not share their political views. The quality of some of the letters Paglia quotes tells you something about the column itself.
As I’ve said before, in addition to being brilliant, Paglia is the most intellectually honest political writer in America today. If you skip her column, you are missing out on the best of what the genre has to offer.
