Profile In the Daily Beast

A well-rounded profile from Tricia Romano over at the Daily Beast:

“I think her angle is different,” said Instapundit’s Reynolds. “She’s much more of a flyover country person. She’s from St. Louis—it kind of shows in her approach. She’s more interested in persuading people or having them hear her out.”

“She speaks for a vein of conservatism that isn’t very well represented in this country,” he continued. “You’ve got your sort of National Review-style conservatism, your social con–Rick Santorum style of conservatism, and here’s this rock ’n’ roll chick. She showed up on some show—when the Tea Party movement was very new, it was mostly portrayed as scary, right-wing, angry white males—but she showed up to an event wearing a Public Enemy shirt. That’s just brilliant.”
