Palin withdrawals



From Salon

It’s been two days since I’ve written a post about Sarah Palin and a day and a half since even mentioning her name. I’m not sure my blog traffic can survive.

Jokes aside, Palin, like the Montauk Monster, has been a boon for Jewish Journal traffic, leading me to quip in our meeting last week that, indeed, Sarah Palin is good for the Jews. (Somehow I turned the same logic on its head for Monty.)

Michael Paulson, the inestimable religion reporter for the Boston Globe, makes a similar remark in this post about religion blog comments, which often aren’t in any better taste than comments at Gawker.
