What does Sarah Palin have in common with many of my students?

I'll give you one guess.

Thanks to Emily for the tip!

That's just more street cred that she's not one of those "Washington elite" with their continents and NAFTAs. She is "real" America. ; )

How much do you think this is accurate and how much is the McCain camp being mad that she chaffed at being pigeon-holed? Sure, she showed a bit of her inexperience, but I think she felt she had a lot more to offer (true or not, who knows?) than the role McCain set for her.

When Mac first picked her, I said that he and his camp were not so stupid as to think that just putting a woman in the position would steal the Hillary vote. The way they used Palin, I've changed my mind.

It's on FOX News. FOX News doesn't report unflattering news about Republicans unless they're playing the blame game. But I do think it's true; there are multiple reports on similar issues from multiple sources.

On her being pigeonholed, I don't know. Yeah, they wanted her to bring in the women's vote and the evangelical vote. But she had to know that going in.

Can we say scapegoat?

I find it particularly sad that Fox News (as the self-appointed voice of the Republican party) seems to be less interested in soul searching to understand how the party's platform may need some change and more interested in finding someone or something to blame. Let the stoning begin!
