Some credit is due to Mitt Romney for hiring political staffer Richard Grenell despite the fact Grenell is openly gay.

Sarah Palin is explaining herself on Facebook. The Associated Press writes, “Palin’s spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, confirmed Palin wrote the entry.” Such disclosure is unnecessary; no ghostwriting consultant could have manufactured the glittering rhinestones that stud her essay:

Pelosi, Impediment to Torture Investigation? Pelosi, Resign.

Which matters more to the Democratic Party: the preservation of civil liberty, human rights and constitutional government — or the preservation of Party leaders’ power? We are about to find out.
