So, um, lipstick? Yes, lipstick is the main story of the day; but why? Is it sexist? Is it a diversion? Is it just... lipstick? In today's Wilshire & Washington, hosts Ted, Teresa, and Maegan take on the overflowing Palin-spectacular, and ponder other important questions of the day: Can Biden take Palin in a hand-to-hand combat? What's Steve Schmidt's problem, saying the media needs to provide proper "deference" to the Republican VP pick? Does Meghan McCain's claim that her family "understands" war make her fair game? Where do we draw the line with families? And how did Obama do on the No Spin Zone?
Ted also addresses the unfortunate circumstances in St. Paul, where he was covering a protest for Variety and got arrested and held for four hours by the police despite being, you know, his right as an accredited journalist to be there.
