A Kos diarist who found this photo wonders about this wardrobe decision. Democratically inclined? Or just dumb? (She doesn't know much about the job of V.P., that's clear.)

I note  this Andrew Sullivan post on McCain's strategy to win. It explains why Obama is continuing to pour so much effort into preserving a victory in Pennsylvania and why dedicated Dems like my daughter are spending every weekend there knocking on doors. McCain can't win without Pennsylvania. Sullivan pops up because he says Palin's anti-intellectualism is such an affront to the intellectual tradition of conservative thinkers that it's a "tragedy worth of Shakespeare." His reference to The New Republic article on Palin is right on target. This is one scary woman, should she sit an aging cancer survivor's heart beat away from leadership of the free world. Resentful and suspicious of smarter people. Blind to ethical conflicts. Dismissive of legal restraints. Dishonest. A worthy successor to the current administration.
