David Brooks' latest whine

Palin isn't ready blah, blah, blah,

Sarah Palin has many virtues. If you wanted someone to destroy a corrupt establishment, she’d be your woman.

Stop right there!  Yep, that's exactly what we want. 

And no, David, destroying corrupt establishments isn't a utopian pipe dream as you imply.  Palin has made excellent progress in doing precisely that in Alaska.  It isn't perfect, certainly and there's a long way to go, but she shook things up and took down a few pieces of the corrupt establishment.  Brooks wants effective governance...problem is, you can't have effective governance when the government is immobilized under the weight of rampant corruption.
