Bite me.

…This one should matter, given that the next president may be a 72-year-old, four-time cancer survivor who lately is behaving more like a cocky fighter pilot than captain of the ship of state. Palin could be president on Day Two, Three or Four, before she had time to learn on the job, if such learning is possible.
Palin with a prepared text on a large stage does fine. Without a script, not so fine. Expectations for her at the debate in St. Louis are at about curb level because of some rocky interviews. The press complains that John McCain’s handlers have kept Palin in a cocoon when actually she’s been spending every waking minute with Katie Couric, an inexplicable decision whose proponent may be looking for other work now.
…In case she bombs, the campaign has an excuse ready. Although the campaign signed off on PBS’s Gwen Ifill well after it was known she has a book on race and the ’08 campaign coming out in January, aides now contend that renders her a poor choice to moderate.
…Bush quietly made the elite more so by tending to their economic interests while playing up his love for Nascar Dads and barbecue. As long as you drop your g’s, you can be way wealthier than Wal-Mart patrons (the Palins earn more than $200,000 a year) as long as you aspire to the same cultural class.

I’ll betcha Sarah’s happy to disappoint ya.
