First read on Sarah Palin
Here's the column I cobbled together Friday for the Sunday Register on Sarah Palin. I hate writing to fit but it does impose a certain discipline. Short story shorter: She firms up the base, which wasn't enthusiastic, could appeal to Hillaryites (I almost like my original typo, "Hillarytites" better) but we'll have to see (abortion may be a deal-breaker), and she has some downsides: Won't be able to use the "no experience" meme against Obama as much, she could easily slip on one of the many banana peels that will be tossed in front of her.
