    She tries to keep them hidden behind her ears as much as possible.

    If you look at Miss Wasilla in close up then she really becomes a lovely and gauzy tabula rasa.

    Miss Heath (aka Mrs. Palin, MILF of the North) can be whatever your heart might desire ...

    Todd is one lucky dude.

    Holy crap, just watched the interview. Shockingly bad. I must have been too absorbed in the financial news last week to even notice: did anyone in the media talk about this? How long can McCain keep this under the rug?

    Oh, it's not under rugs at all. Even Conservative commentators are talking about McCain finding a new VP, but I think that would be a hard decision to sell to the voters.

    It's a hit.

    Even some conservative columnists are criticizing McCain for his VP choice.

    Mrs. Palin does have experience -- specifically in LOSING. Case in point: The 1984 Miss Alaska Beauty Pageant competition where she came in THIRD (Second Runner Up).

    The winner of the Miss Alaska title that year was Maryline Blackburn who has since left Alaska and gone on to have success as a singer.

    Maryline recalls kicking Mrs. Palin's butt.

    In the 1984 pageant Maryline voted for Mrs. Palin for Miss Congeniality, but will not be voting for her in 2008:

    "It's all about Obama, baby!"

    Let's be fair; she's done rather well with her life.

    Never said Mrs. Palin hasn't moved up.

    And she's definitely done well for herself and her immediate family.

    But, as they sing in the heartland: she's gone about as fer as she can go (per the Peter Principle).

    Losing becomes her -- and if Mrs. Palin loses soon then it will save us all a lot of pain later.

    LA Times:
    After conducting a college band and watching Palin deliver a commencement address to a small group of home-schooled students in June 1997, Wasilla resident Philip Munger said, he asked the young mayor about her religious beliefs. Palin told him that "dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time," Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks," recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska.

    What I implied by 'doing rather well' was not LOSING.

    She's just in over her head. Not her fault; the world was perfectly at ease with her in Alaska. Hopefully, she'll return to that life. What Alaskans think can be decided in their gubernatorial election.

    Maryline Blackburn? She got a Wiki page when Palin got the nomination.

    Jasonik, you obviously haven't seen The Flintstones.

    I mean - there's Fred, Wilma, and Dino.

    Case closed.

    Free Palin? McCain Camp Readies VP For Debate

    The Huffington Post

    Despite bad reviews from all sides, John McCain's campaign has decided that having Sarah Palin do big broadcast interviews was a good idea [so does Obama], the National Review reports:

    Team McCain tells me the strategy of having Palin talk to traditional broadcast networks ABC and CBS was designed to allow Palin to reach the maximum number of viewers. "Coming off her tremendous performance at the convention, our goal was to allow as many Americans as possible an opportunity to see her answer questions about her record, her biography and her principles and convictions on as large a stage as possible," one campaign source told me this afternoon. [Now she's a YouTube icon] The new CBS interviews [Goodie, there's more], to be done tomorrow, are intended to keep Palin in the public eye as she prepares for Thursday's debate.

    In fact, the new interviews have already been recorded but will air before the debate. [Doctored? Maybe that's why McCain cancelled Letterman for Couric.]

    Bill Kristol says McCain isn't happy, however, with the way his staff has been handling Palin and is making some changes for the debate:

    I'm told McCain recently expressed unhappiness with his staff's handling of Palin. On Sunday he dispatched his top aides Steve Schmidt and Rick Davis to join Palin in Philadelphia. They're supposed to liberate Palin to go on the offensive as a combative conservative in the vice-presidential debate on Thursday.[Palin Unchained. An RNC movie coming soon.]

    The Wall Street Journal has more on Palin's liberation:

    McCain campaign manager Rick Davis and senior adviser Steve Schmidt are planning to coach the candidate ahead of the debate, according to senior advisers. They traveled Sunday to meet the Republican vice-presidential nominee in Philadelphia. After her appearance with Sen. McCain at a rally in Columbus, Ohio, these top officials plan to fly with her on Monday to Sen. McCain's ranch in Sedona, Ariz., which they hope she will find a comforting place to prep, these people said.


    More broadly, the McCain campaign aims to halt what it sees as a perceived decline in the crispness and precision of Gov. Palin's latest remarks as well as a fall in recent polls, according to several advisers and party officials. [Whut?]

    ...

    Some prominent Republicans and senior members of Congress have expressed worries about certain facets of the Palin campaign, particularly that Gov. Palin may be "overprepared" and not encouraged to be herself, an adviser said.

    "She hasn't had the time or inclination to question the judgments of the people telling her to hit her marks,"[Maybe they should have picked Tina Fey.] said one Republican strategist. "Gov. Palin is a team player, but the campaign needs to adjust to a game plan that works for her.

    ...

    "It's time to let Palin be Palin -- and let it all hang out,"[That's all we want. We have a good supply of hand lotion] said Scott Reed, a Republican strategist."
