No, it's not just you. She's all over the place. I guess my "Go home, Sarah" mantra didn't get any traction :(.
It's not just you, Bill. She's the new media darling because the numb nuts that pass for journalists create stories instead of uncover them. I'm reminded of a speech by Edward R. Morrow about the dangers of news and entertainment blurring the boundaries between them. Ha was he ever right. I feel that Palin was badly used by McCain handlers and she is a bit defensive and feels she needs to attempt to defend herself. Also, she has this misplaced confidence. She doesn't have a clue about the depth a person must have to take on the very complicated problems that presidents must face. Of course we are discussing a female version of the Shrub. So she'll be big news for another moment and then disappear.On the other hand, if Ted Stevens happens to pull out a miracle in Alaska, Palin might wind up in DC as a senator. Politics ---isn't it a grand pastime?
If you haven't already, you should start reading Mudflats (mudflats.wordpress.com) for analysis of Palin's future, the Stevens fiasco, etc. Very good writing, homespun Alaskan take on things.
