-Rosa Brooks, on the 'real America'
"It's really depressing. Having covered campaigns for decades, I have a high tolerance for candidates ripping each other apart. I have a lower tolerance for the attacks on patriotism. And some of them are starting to backfire."
Also, I'm seriously just about done posting Palin stories, but this article has interesting questions as to what Palin is up to. And someone should probably correct her as to what the vice-president does, because she is getting some basic facts wrong.
And because it entertains me: "The shopping spree cost about 75 times more than the average American spends per year on clothing; in 2006, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, that figure was $1,874. It also totaled more than the $125,000 Palin makes annually as governor."
What? "I think she's most qualified of any that has run recently for vice president, tell you the truth." McCain is amazed? Really? He couldn't see this coming?
