Twenty-seven. That’s the number of times I urped in my mouth watching pundits drool over the human interest story that is Sarah Palin on today’s Sunday morning shows. Several of them admitted that the only reason they thought it was a good pick by McCain is because it will spice up a convention none of them were looking forward to covering. They really are that transparent and self-interested.
And check out Face the Nation‘s lineup: Rudy Guiliani, Joe Lieberman, Carly Fiorina and David Brooks. The only way they could have made the show more pro-Palin was if they added a hundred cheering hockey moms (if that many actually exist) and a really angry aborted fetus.
But, hey, I’m still not worried. The media’s love affair with her will be short-lived, more Palin gaffes and past dirt will quickly unspool in the next few weeks, and I still stick with my prediction that this pick will be a large net-negative for McCain when it comes to the undecideds. Hell, her mother-in-law isn’t sure who she’s going to vote for.

Asked about Palin’s credentials, Cindy McCain told ABC-TV’s “This Week:” “The experience that she comes from is with what she’s done in the government. And also, remember: Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia. So, it’s not as if she doesn’t understand what’s at stake here.”
Yesterday people were wondering aloud if McCain and Republicans thought women were that stupid. Today we can safely ask if they think women and men are that stupid. According to McCain, we are all Doocys now.
HOLY SHIT: That Palin radio show performance is a lot worse than I thought (listen to the YouTube clip). That’s not a giggle, that’s a guffaw. Someone tell the thoroughly insufferable Melissa McEwan that it’s time to start the Lyda Green Sexism Watch.
