From Taylor Marsh at THE HUFFINGTON POST:
At the end of a defensive post about Sarah Palin’s hunting fiasco taped on her TLC show [Sarah Palin’s Alaska], the Wall Street Journal blog finally admits to a final insult out of the whole sorry spectacle:
“True enough. It was a young cow, something most hunters would have passed up, looking for a more impressive trophy.”
The caribou she shot was a young cow.
It’s not going to help Sarah’s image, which in the latest McClatchy-Marist polling has the Tea Party queen trailing the pack.
Ohhhh, those pesky Democwats! They weawy make me angwy! Continue reading
It’s no “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” or “Rocket Man,” but William Shatner took to the airwaves on Monday night on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” and turned former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s rambling, magnetic poetry-esque farewell speech into a soaring benediction in the way only a tireless pitchman/geek legend/part-time beat poet can.

From The New York Times:
Up here in Alaska, wildlife metaphors tend to be as abundant as their flesh-and-blood counterparts, and Gov. Sarah Palin has helped herself to them generously in explaining why she’s stepping down today, barely halfway through her term.
She didn’t want the state to be stuck with a “lame duck” chief executive, she said. She could hang around the Statehouse and go with the flow, she allowed, but “only dead fish go with the flow.”
Palin’s departure — she’s officially handing over power to Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell at a community picnic in Fairbanks — has left many Alaskans largely confused.
Some are confused, but there are others who are scared shitless that she’ll have plenty of free time now!

From ABC News:
ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: The McCain-Palin campaign’s efforts to reach women is about to get a celebrity boost: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is set to join Gov. Sarah Palin on the campaign trail.
“The View” co-host said Thursday the McCain campaign contacted her a day earlier, to convey an invitation from Palin to introduce her at rallies Sunday in Florida.
I always thought that Elisabeth was Cindy Lou’s bestest buddy, but I guess she’s been handed down to Caribou Barbie. I guess Reality Show Barbie is now the official celebrity
Cheerleader Sneerleader Barbie!

Sarah Palin’s office has discovered a renewable resource to bring millions of dollars into Alaska’s economy: the governor’s e-mails.
The office of the Republican vice-presidential nominee has quoted prices as high as $15 million for copies of state e-mails requested by news organizations and citizens. No matter what the price, most of the e-mails of Palin, her senior staff and other state employees won’t be made public until at least several weeks after the Nov. 4 presidential election, her office told msnbc.com on Thursday.

From Reg Henry at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
Since John McCain announced his wild and crazy choice of Sarah Palin to be his running mate in the presidential election, wild and crazy stuff has been coming out about her.
I am not going to do the Democrats’ work by repeating it all here, but Americans shouldn’t go thinking that John McCain’s staff didn’t thoroughly vet her beforehand.
Are you kidding? Her selection was vetted with the same care and attention to detail that the Bush administration took in making the case to invade Iraq.
But I do have some concerns about Palin’s fitness to hold high office. Mostly, I am worried about her penchant for moose hunting.
