When Emily noted that Palin is the Eva Peron of American politics I knew I had to write a post about it. I'd not read the comparison anywhere else.
We've feared for years that America was becoming 20th century Argentina writ large -- a vast nation destroyed by its own people. Now, with Sarah Palin, we're completing the circle.
Turns out, Emily's not the only one to notice. Palin "eva peron" - Google Search has 77,900 hits this morning.
We are so screwed.
