The Veep Stakes Sweep: A Round Up

sarah_palin2.jpg
Well, the Fall television schedule has yet to debut. The Olympics are over. The hurricane was a dud. The DNC is over. And well, now it’s Republican week. And, Republicans are pretty boring unless their secret gay affairs become public. So, that’s why the press is all aflutter with all things Sarah Palin.

Here’s a couple of our favorites:

  • WaPo‘s Richard Cohen compares Palin the horse Incitatus that was Caligula’s consul and priest.
  • Slate‘s John Dickerson details her ‘experience’ and asks what this means about McCain’s judgment.
  • NYT‘s Maureen Dowd calls this whole thing with Palin a chick flick.
  • Salon‘s Mike Madden writes about Hurricane Bristol.
  • Local Alaska site Mudflats says that Palin is McCain’s ‘Bridge to No Where’.
  • Reuter‘s John Whitesides says that McCain’s choice is the wrong kind of buzz.
  • HuffPo‘s Bonnie Fuller asks if Palin is exploiting her teenage daughter.
  • Michael Carey says that we don’t know Sarah Palin…but really doesn’t get into it after that.
  • Tucker Carlson is in love with her. Which would be on our suicide note.
  • Huffpo has an entire page of Palin coverage.
  • As usual, Jonah Goldberg has nothing interesting, original or of note to say – but is an LAT columnist anyway.
