I'm wondering

I read this op-ed in the Baltimore Sun and was trying to figure out why a this columnist would have so much venom toward Sarah Palin.

Susan Reimer

Sarah Palin
You can find Ms. Reimer's bio here, courtesy of the Baltimore Sun. You can find Gov. Palin's bio here, courtesy of Wikipedia.

Ms. Reimer doesn't have a wikipedia entry.

Any thoughts as to why Ms. Reimer would make a beauty pagent joke about Gov. Palin?
