And the fact is, I don't think she's stupid. I do think it tells us a lot about what she thinks of her target audience.
I'll give her credit for not being Joe-the-Plumber stupid. Her ability to twist anything and everything into a source of outrage shows some mental agility.

By the same token, though, I cannot think of anyone as zealous as she is as all that bright. Or maybe she is, but if so, then the only other explanation is that she's insane.

I don't get the same sense from her as I do from, say, Coulter, about exaggerating her beliefs to play to a target audience. There's no way anyone could churn out that much bile every day as she does on her blog just to keep up an act. And no one could make up the Dunkin' Donuts scarf jihad -- that takes a True Believer.
