Intellectual no-go zone

Andrew Sullivan is packing in blogging -- again -- largely because he feels that he's been at it too long. It's hard not to sympathize when you watch the media cycle through spectacles-du-jour with no apparent memory of these things happening before. Hence for example the Michelle Obama non-scarf freakout, the Pelosi scarf freakout long forgotten.

And we also have conservatives wondering what is it with Sarah Palin speeches -- "Denali, The Great One" must have happened hundreds of years before the dawn of history. But as we queried at the time, if these speeches are the real Palin, who was writing those op-eds under her name?
