Palin as Pericles

NRO lead editor Kathryn Lopez posted this morning this description of a Palin campaign stop in Indiana:

Palin didn't need Greek columns. People react to her because they believe she represents what the Greeks established.

I’m becoming ever more convinced that I’ll never really understand the adoration that some on the right (albeit a decreasing number, I think) continue to have for Palin.  Respect for her considerable political skills, sure.  Sympathy and outrage over the relentless and often scurrilous attacks that she and her family have endured, sure.  But adoration?

I like to think I have some pretty good political analysis chops, but I admit I just don’t get it.
