thecowardcontinettiBill Kristol’s cabana boy, Matthew Continetti, is all over the place this week strewing rose petals before the mukluks of the Alaska almost-writer lady.  Besides his regular gig at the non-profit Weekly Standard, Continetti has been popping up like a whack-a-mole  at the Wall Street Journal, CNN, and now the Washington Post’s Book World.

Continetti begins his Palin tongue bath review in an amusing way:

Like a lot of people, as soon as I got my copy of Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue,” I immediately thought of the German literary critic Hans Robert Jauss.

He really wrote that. For reals.

Surprisingly, Continetti didn’t start off his latest paen to Palin with:

It must be very strange to be President Bush Sarah Palin. A (wo)man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, (s)he can’t get anyone to notice. (S)He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his her time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile. Also. Too.

Oh wait. That would have been Ben Domenech.

I get these juice box pundits mixed up all of the time.
