What's the Pay Like?

Kevin D. Williamson:
Re: Steele and the RNC: Allow me to chime in with my usual observation on this subject: This is a job for Sarah Palin. Palin would be a much better RNC chairman than presidential candidate or freelance kingmaker. She'd raise tons of money and help recruit good candidates, i.e., she'd excel at doing the things Steele should have been doing instead of appointing himself Republican pundit-at-large.

A Chairman Palin would help set the right tone for the Republican party without having to get herself entangled in the minutiae of policy-development, which has not been her forte. Sure, she'd be polarizing, but so is Barack Obama, and these are polarized times. And it's one thing to have a polarizing party chairman, another to have a polarizing candidate.

Anybody disagree?
Let's ask Thomas Sowell's opinion:

I'm betting Sarah Palin could give a shit about an actual job when the welfare pays so well.

Someone does not appreciate the competition.

Well, even Failin' Palin could hardly do a worse job than Steele. Of course, the question of humor quotient must be satisfactorily answered, and it seems likely that although Steele has been very lulz-worthy, she'd be sure to provide a lulz spectacular.

To provide entertainment for me - this is the only useful purpose of the GOP.

Forget Palin, boys. Go for the gold and hire Orly!

A good point. Orly needs the bucks for all those legal expenses.
