Tyler Cowen notes Sarah Palin's Scrabble strategy:
"Everybody in the family played Scrabble and took great pride in hoarding Ks and Qs and slapping them down in long, fancy words on triple-letter scores." -- Going Rogue, p. 12.
then goes on to criticize it. http://www.marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2009/11/scrabble-strategy.html#comments
"this is bad Scrabble strategy....If this is her game of Scrabble, you can only imagine what her foreign policy would be like."
Tyler's tongue might be in his cheek; surely Palin's adult life provides far more reason to fear her foreign policy than her childhood Scrabble strategy.
The whole idea of Scrabble seems a bit quaint, despite the game's continued popularity.
