Palin fever

I was watching CNN earlier, and Wolf Blitzer announced that coming up was what Obama, McCain and Palin were up to today.

No mention of Biden.

Of course, it's always possible Biden wasn't up to anything today. Seems rather unlikely, though.

So the (liberal elitist) media is just as much all over this woman, in a positive way, as I'm assuming is Fox News (I only watch Fox News when I'm in a masochistic frame of mind).

I just don't get it. I have the same reaction to Palin as I have to the Mitten: shiver.

I was kind of shocked to read this sentence in a Patrick Healy piece in the (elitist liberal rag) New York Times: Mrs. Clinton can seem harsh when she goes on the attack; Ms. Palin has shown a knack for attacking without seeming nasty.

I wonder what Sen. (liberal elitist) Clinton thinks? I never really felt that way about her, although she was constantly criticized by others in the (elitist liberal) media for being shrill and whatnot.

This is the concluding comment in a piece on StarTribune.com (Minneapolis-St. Paul):

Whatever appeal gender has for female voters, Obama's campaign is not about to let McCain corner the market. Clinton herself, along with Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano and Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, all are scheduled to campaign for Obama in the coming weeks, particularly where they can vouch for Obama to large female audiences.

Well, we'll see. It's a great study in YIKES and OMG and WHAT THE ...?! - on both sides.

** What can I say? There's nothing this exciting going on around these parts! **

the "liberal elitist media" you refer to is also the same that saw 7 stories about Palin's 17 year old daughter on the front page of the New York Times the other day. The same media that asks how can she possibly run for VP and still take care of her kids. The same media that says she's unqualified for the position, yet ignores that she is more qualifed than Obama. The same that claimed her 5 month old baby wasn't actually her's but her daughters...whatever positive coverage she's getting is refreshing in it's rarity.
