Suffering Sarah Palin

I'm only halfway through Sarah Palin's new book -- spoiler alert: Hollywood, academia, media and progressives hate America -- but I just have to pass along my favorite passage so far.

...And then I came across something written by an American who knew a little something about adversity: Helen Keller. She wrote, "Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

If I didn't know before what she meant, I know now.

The adversity that Palin is referring to? Levi Johnston's 2009 media tour.

Which is so much like the adversity Keller faced, it's eerie, don't you think?
