OMG! David's actually writing about books.

The news just gets better and better about our Glam-Gov, Sarah Palin. According to this new Time Magazine article, as mayor of the tiny hamlet of Wasilla, Sarah tread on town toes with stylish, but distinctly Germanic boots:

"...as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. "She asked the library how she could go about banning books," he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. "The librarian was aghast." That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn't be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving "full support" to the mayor."

Book banning. Firing people who do not give their full support to questionable policies. Damn, it sounds like this lady would fit right in with the current gang of thugs and cronies. No wonder John likes her. That smell of brimstone is so familiar.

Maybe Big John can spin this into Palin's instinctive understanding of international issues. After all, governments all over the Mideast have that same wonderful tradition of banning books. This way, our Sarah will have something in common with all those radical wahhabis and mullahs she'll meet as VP.

Read more, you'll really learn to love our plucky hockey mom. Why, I bet you know someone just like her in your Homeowners Association.

All day long I'm reading stuff like this yet I see no movement away from her. I guess this is the running mate McCain wants. Bush is starting to look better. And this is what I thought in 2000.

One of the polls (link not readily available) shows Obama over 50% for the first time, with an 8 point lead. That's an indication that Palin hasn't strengthened McCain's position, and honestly, I think McCain is too obtuse to clue in. Right now the party faithful are giving full support to make it look like the party is unified, but the latest rumor is that she actually didn't win the beauty pagent she claims.

I have a feeling this is going to get a lot uglier before she's forced off the ticket.

That photo is currently unavailable.

I don't know what it was, but I have visions of McCainiacs desperately scrubbing embarrassing news and photos from the web.

Davey 3x's ... she was running a campaign while doing a step-class. What's wrong with that!

She gets things done!

80% of that state was in love with her (until this fugazy "troopergate" thing) ... now it's down to 65%.

The DEM Congress is barely afloat with a 9% approval rating (never mind Bush).

And let's not forget ... she's hot!

She's the Palinator!
