I think that Paul’s post — which Rob references below — actually leaves out my favorite part of the linked Politico article. This is some classic comedy:

Palin’s politics of grievance and group identity, according to these critics, is a betrayal of conservative principles.

This is like saying that “George W. Bush’s deficit-expanding upper-class tax cuts are a betrayal of Republican principles” or “Parents Involved represented a betrayal of the conservative tradition of judicial restraint reflected by Bush v. Gore.” Grievance and identity politics define modern Republicanism; it’s just that the resentments are expressed on behalf of the powerful and/or overrepresented rather than the weak.
