All Hail The Great Palin

Thank goodness for the soft bigotry of low expectations. See:
  • Washington Post, Palin Takes On A New Foe: Her Image by Tom Shales (my favorite so far)
  • Washington Post, Joe, and Sarah Six-Pack by Dana Milbank (next favorite)
  • Washington Post, The VP Debate: Palin's Big Mistake by Eugene Robinson (pithy)
  • Washington Post, The VP Debate: She Won Fersure, Also by Kathleen Parker (She's the heretic. Her conclusion: "And the question remains: Is she ready to be president should the need arise?")
  • Washington Post, The VP Debate: A Victory -- of Sorts by Michael Gerson (Favorite line: "It was strange to hear the possibility of a nuclear war described as "the be all, end all of just too many people.")
  • Washington Post, The VP Debate: Sarah the Speedy by Harold Meyerson
  • Washington Post, Hockey Mom on Thin Ice By E. J. Dionne Jr. (Good conclusion: "As for McCain, he found himself in a political hole and threw the dice with Palin. At the time of her selection, voters were often compared with "American Idol" watchers who put personality and stage presence above everything else. But it turns out that Americans take the presidency very seriously. And surviving 90 minutes on a stage with Biden did not transform Palin into a plausible president.")
  • Washington Post, Hail Mary vs. Cool Barry by Charles Krauthammer (Almost an endorsement: "Once Ronald Reagan convinced America that he was not menacing, he won in a landslide. If Obama convinces the electorate that he is not too exotic or green or unprepared, he wins as well. . . he's got both a first-class intellect and a first-class temperament. That will likely be enough to make him president.")
