In a recent interview, Sarah Palin derided bloggers as people living in their parents’ basement blogging in their pajamas. Here’s the video:
There is something truly ironic about that, given that the largest bastion of support for drafting Sarah Palin for vice-president was the blog Draft Sarah Palin for Vice-President. The blog has been widely credited with increasing Palin’s exposure within the party, which led to Palin’s nomination. That blog is run by Adam Brickley, who spent a most of the time while he was on the blog working to draft Sarah Palin … living with his parents.
Adding to the irony, as of the time of this writing, there is nothing currently up at Pajamas Media addressing these comments.
