I know Sarah Palin bashing has prompted much heated debate here on BCP, but I read a column in the New York Times today by Dick Cavett that I thought was the funniest thing I’d ever read on her.

Many of you may be too young to remember Dick Cavett, but he was a wonderfully wry interviewer back in the 1970s, very smart and also a real gentleman. This column starts off a little haltingly — if you remember him, you will read it in his voice and it all works beautifully — but it gets funnier and funnier. I was laughing so hard by the end that I went back and read it over again.
