The Palin "Gaffe" That Wasn't

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:

Republican politicians (and Democratic politicians, too) would have, just a few years ago, kept repeating talking points about (1) the harmfulness of drugs, (2) the dangers drugs pose to our youth, and (3) the importance of equipping law enforcement with the tools it needs. Even if asked point-blank whether pot smokers who don't harm anybody should be arrested, they would dodge the direct question and repeat the talking points.

Palin's remarks would have been "politically incorrect." She would have committed a "gaffe" by telling the truth.

Today, nobody cares.
