Palin quickly picked up the fallen standard of those Hillary voters who put "18 million cracks" in the glass ceiling. She didn't crack anything. John McCain helicoptered her to the roof, and they led her down the back stairs.

Sarah Palin is selling a lie, just like McCain. If the Obama campaign won't explain that to the American people, McCain and Palin will win the national debates and likely go on to victory.
Gov. Ed Rendell decried a double standard in the treatment of Sarah Palin on Monday, saying that if it was he who was at the center of the "troopergat...
The McCain campaign is already out with its second Sarah Palin-related campaign ad, a 30-second spot designed to grab the mantle of change from Barack...
We are looking at someone completely new to the national stage being asked to present herself for the first time to millions of Americans.
If you give the attractive young news anchor on your hometown station a world-class speechwriter and a team of handlers, my bet is that she could have pulled off Sarah Palin's speech too.
The Republicans, perhaps the savviest marketers of them all, know how to tap into the resentment at smarty-pants, self-appointed urban authorities.
In Palin, McCain may have found a way to shift attention away from Bush-McCain associations. "In a normal election," Karl Rove said, "the effect of the vice presidential candidate is minimal..."
Community organizing -- or any sort of genuine grassroots effort -- is a real threat to Bush, McCain, and Palin. On that level, people start looking at actions instead of words.
Compelling is what the Republicans are hoping for -- a working mother of five, from PTA to one of 50 governors in only 14 years and on the verge of becoming the most powerful GOP woman in America
Howard Fineman reported tonight (and I heard something similar) that Sarah Palin will, after a brief stretch on the trail, head back to Anchorage and ...
The dark, twisted madness of the last eight years is being entirely ignored in the face of the exact same bogus Republican packaging -- the exact same script.
Palin will throw mud with impunity, then in the tradition of Agnew, Dole and Quayle yell "double standard" and "bias reporting" when she is called on it.
As a woman and feminist, I'm not buying all the rhetoric. Mainly because Sarah Palin is the most anti-women woman to hit national politics to date.
Who could resist Sarah in pearls and the paramilitary-looking outfit. (Can anyone ID the uniform?).
And, of course, the moose.
I blogged yesterday about going easier on Gov Palin on the experience quotient. This morning I have pause on my argument.
Sarah Palin is the reverse of Barack Obama, in essence his shadow, deriding his idealism and exhorting people to obey their worst impulses.
St. Paul-- John McCain and Sarah Palin are tapping into the angry, conservative, anti-government populist tradition represented in recent years by pol...
The placement of the "handmade" signs was smart, especially when that's all you've really got. It makes America think the support by moms for Sarah Palin is simply unstoppable.
The McCain campaign has launched, in the form of a new political advertisement, the most explicit defense yet of its choice of Sarah Palin's for vice ...
Just hours after aides to John McCain accused the media and Sen. Barack Obama of engaging in sexist and chauvinist treatment of Sarah Palin, another p...
There is a lot of inherent drama to Sarah Palin's address before the Republican Convention tonight, do mainly to the fact that there has been an excep...
