The British reaction to Sarah Palin

What I find most fascinating about Sarah Palin is not so much her, but the reaction to her, especially in the British media and amongst London's chattering classes where she is perceived as an ignorant, gun toting, bible bashing country bumpkin. Their reaction tells you more about the bigotry of the British than of any perceived shortcomings of our American cousins. It also reveals how ignorant the British are when it comes to American politics and culture.

Irwin Stelzer has a written a great column in her defence.
