As The Politico has reported and The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein has elaborated (complete with a slideshow), the Republican National Committee has spent over $150,000 on clothing and makeup for Sarah Palin and her family since the beginning of September, including a single Needless Markup Nieman Marcus spree that ran to over $75,000.

It’s amazing the kinds of things that can share a single news cycle sometimes. On the one hand, Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher is discovering that he was no better prepared than Sarah (“Bible Spice“/”starbursty winks“/”ethical violations“) Palin to be plastered all over the media as a symbol of “ordinary Americans,” and it’s really not much Continue reading →

In the wake of Sarah Palin’s revival of the unconscionable smear that Obama is “palling around with terrorists” (and Joe Lieberman’s shameful abandonment of any and all scruples by defending that smear as raising “legitimate questions”—about the candidate who put his own progressive cred on the line to endorse Joe in Connecticut’s 2006 Senate race!)… Continue reading →

An event like this is all about the image you convey to those inexplicably undecided voters out there—the crowd that hasn’t been following the race closely, beyond Continue reading →

No question, it’s going to be really interesting to see Sarah Palin in a live debate Thursday night. The latest clip from her interview with Katie Couric is just, well, flabbergasting. IMHO it outdoes “In what respect, Charlie?” and even that instant classic “I’ll try to find some and I’ll bring ’em to ya.” Seriously,  Continue reading →

What?  No, not like that!  Ick.  Get your mind out of the gutter. What this is about is her polling numbers. In the past week, to put it succinctly, they have tanked. On September 11, people viewed her “favorably” 17% more often than “unfavorably”; by September 17, that spread had reversed to 1% less favorable Continue reading →

It’s been interesting times since Sarah Palin was chosen as John McCain’s running mate two weeks ago—political theater at its highest and lowest. Coming in the wake of the Republican Party’s rebuke of any of McCain’s even remotely moderate policy leanings in its hard-right official platform, it was little surprise that the party also pushed Continue reading →
