Palin Comparison

I have to say, I'm loving the Governor Palin freakfest. Every day there's a new revelation and a lot more absurd speculation. I like the one that says her baby is her daughter's by her alcoholic son. Pure nonsense, but when in a political season have things ever gotten this out there? It's as though the Straight Talk Express crashed into "The Real World." She runs a state with the population of Fort Worth, TX. Her husband fishes, but it appears that's not his main job (he really works for an oil company, which is not nearly so colorful and might even be a negative). She is beloved in Alaska, except for the folks from her hometown who truly hate her and are trying desperately to get the word out. She gave a great speech last night and is clearly a rising star, but I'd be happier if she got her own sitcom in Hollywood than her own desk in the West Wing.
