Sarah Palin reads more

Remember all the fuss when Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin what she read?
At least she read more than one newspaper.
Forget the fact that the idea of a sitting president being so myopic, bubbled, and unwilling to consider alternate opinion is a little scary; what all of this might help to explain is why some are wondering if the New York Times is running the White House's frantic and widely criticized Syria policy.
As my colleague Larry O'Connor wrote earlier today, during the most schizophrenic days of Obama's decision-making process with respect to Syria, the president was in contact with a New York Times that was, at the time and with regular editorials, using its opinion pages to slow down Obama's unilateral march towards war.
