On the eve of the vice presidential debate, some words of caution about the Palin phenomenon from a young conservative:

According to Google’s trend page of worldwide searches, “Sarah Palin” has been the most popular search in the world for the last 30 days. She is 3.4 times more popular than Barack Obama, 6.8 times more popular than Joe Biden, and six times more popular than even Paris Hilton.
So the Republicans have found their celebrity. But what does she mean?
I think Sarah Palin is, for conservatives, at once a compelling danger and a rare opportunity.

I would encourage you to read the whole column even if I didn’t know the author.
