Palin, Goin' After Obama

Let me see if I've got this straight: Sarah Palin is saying we don't know enough about Barack Obama?

Sarah Palin, who six weeks ago did not yet exist for 99 percent of the American people? Sarah Palin, whose biography even now consists of a handful of adjectives and anecdotes, half of which ("I said, 'Thanks, but no thanks'") are themselves distortions or outright fabrications?

Sarah Palin is saying we don't know enough about Barack Obama?!

That Sarah Palin?

That Sarah Palin.

She seems to have convinced herself that making it through one vice-presidential debate without doing any further damage to her reputation -- which is to say, without spontaneously combusting right there on stage -- now gives her sufficient standing to question Barack Obama's background, character, honesty, patriotism. Which she's only too happy to do, over and over again.

She doesn't think that's just a little bit screwy?

She doesn't think.
