Several political commentators (even some on the right) are having great fun today with the story of how Sarah Palin regaled the CPAC crowd with a creaky, old, repeat snark about Barack Obama using a teleprompter while she was reading the “joke” off a teleprompter.

This raises a serious question about our political commentariat:

Why do they care about anything Sarah Palin says and why do they think we do too?*

Seriously, why do these people have jobs?

*You could replace “Sarah Palin” with “CPAC” here and not miss a a note.
