Sarah Palin is GodOr so the buffoonish BBC seems to suggest.
This is SO ridiculous that it is almost hard for me to believe the BBC hires such fools. (OK I know - I do watch it and they do.)
Sarah Palin has certainly inserted herself into the process this year and it has been entertaining to watch her, someone who I thought at the end of 2008 could never possibly be a viable candidate for national office, assert her voice.
Here she is on FOX News Sunday last weekend; usually the opening interviews on such shows are snoozefests even for me, who watches the shows fanatically. Sarah Palin is not boring. "Hurry up then, because I have a lot to say." "Was it a rock climber or a rock star?" "Thanks for keeping the questions short."
In normal circumstances, I can not imagine ever voting for her, but she is growing on me (I don't get a vote in US elections). And she is growing partly because she is working and clearly learning as she goes, but probably even more so because of the clowns on the other side, and the apparent disarray in the Republican party.
I am coming to suspect anything can happen.
But look - today's elections are not ABOUT Sarah Palin.
They are about Obama-Pelosi-Reid. She has just jumped aggressively on the negative coattails.
BTW - the nicest TV moment of the week for me was seeing Bushes 41 and 43 opening the fourth game of the World Series. Do I miss him yet? Yup.
