I hear the Secret Service have codenamed her 'Eagle-ton'...

Look, this is simply getting silly.

I, like many liberals, breathed a sigh of relief when the truth about the baby turned out to be as simple as a teenager having sex (well, simple unless you have a mother that promotes abstinence-only and opposes sex-ed, but that's another story), but, alas, apres la deluge:

She was for the bridge to nowhere before she was against it.

She was the director of a 527 group for a corruption-charge indicted US Senator (the superbly titled, "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc").

She is under ethics investigation for pushing admirable family loyalty too far in what Alaskans call "Troopergate".

During her first Mayorality she faced early attempts by senior city officals to affect a Recall Election due to her alleged overreaches.

She thinks the Founding Fathers wrote the Pledge of Allegiance (of 1954 fame).

She's an ex-member of the Alaska Independence Party - as John noted to me, is this the first time that the Party of Lincoln has had a secessionist on the ticket?

And now Ben Smith brings us word that even her claim to Ms. Congeniality is under question. I can hear Axelrod shooting the Bullock-Shatner attack ad as we speak...

But best of all, who would have guessed that it would be Joe Biden who proved the "low-key, stable, drama-free vice presidential candidate" this season?
Right enough of this frivolity, I'm going to attempt a hard headed analysis of the strategic situation for both campaign's tommorow. That's if I can can keep a straight face through whatever Sarah-news tommorow bring. TTFN.

"Look, this is simply getting silly" - what a wonderful way to sum up this debacle.

She's dodgy as hell and to be frank, her poor daughter doesn't need to be part of it.

Look here for a different, perhaps fairer take on the abstinence views:

I don't think the specifics of any of these items really matter, more the volume. Many of them have already been disproved, but as we've learned with various smears against the Democratic Party in the past, the simple fact that they got out in the first place is what counts.

I think that things need to drip, drip, drip out over the next few days. And that either this investigation into "Troopergate" needs to be released just before the election, or there has to be evidence of them holding the results so as not to interfere with the election.

I also want to reveal what I learned today on the corner of 14th and F Streets, NW, just outside of my office: "The British Start World Wars". Be aware, and be vigilant. From what I overheard, they wouldn't think twice of getting involved with Dick Cheney if that would help them accomplish their goals, which, as near as I could gather, are starting more wars.
