Hope you are right Clarice.

Do you think we should pursue a Saturday Sarah book signing event at the Capitol to have thousands show up to help stiffen the spine of waverer's, or do you think enough of them are sensible enough to not buy off on this supposedly benign Saturday night Procedural Vote that will be grandstanded by the Pol's and MSM?

From way out here I simply don't know.

bad

The NYT has a story on Palin's stylist who confirms Sarah was telling the truth about the clothes that caused such a controversy.

Hot Air has the link.

Jane

I plan to have a JOM party tomorrow night right here for the vote. You are all invited. I'll be serving grey goose, Dacu, and pinot grigio, my famous bourson cheese and a variety of other appetizers. Friends are welcomed.

Sue

Rush just said that Nelson is a yes on Saturday's vote.

Jane

Speaking of Hot Air, I think the Walpin matter could be an impeachable offense.

bad

It's a shocking story, Jane. Espicially with Rhee marrying the d-bag after finding out who he is.

And yeah, impeachment would be the peachiest.

Porchlight

bad,

Can you believe that was in the NYT? Granted in the Fashion & Style section, but still.

Temps are dropping in Hell as we type.

bad

Porch, I was astonished! I'm still wondering if I read it right.

Jane

If he keeps mucking everything up even the left will be looking for a reason to impeach him. He of course will say it is because he is black.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

The vote tomorrow, if it happens, is only the vote to proceed to debate. I don't see anyway of organizing anything worthwhile in 24 hours, but I think it is a great idea for the day of the actual vote, should they get that far.

Porchlight

bad,

And it wasn't even a bait-and-switch job. The piece is positive all the way through.

It's actually pretty clever and the reverse of the usual hit pieces like the ones featuring Wallace and Schmidt. Normally they would allow the interviewee to whine "poor poor pitiful me, I was stuck managing this horrible diva candidate" and thus make it all but inevitable that the readers end up disliking both the interviewees and the candidate too. This time they give the stylist a chance to defend her choices, debunk some of the myths, stick up for the candidate, and basically come out smelling like a rose - which has the effect of shedding positive light on Sarah.

And the photos are great. Personally I thought Palin and her family looked terrific at the RNC. Kline did a good job on extremely short notice.

Of course, she had superior raw material to work with. ;)

bad

I hope the stylist gets a ton of business from the publicity.

Wasn't Carl Cameron of FOX NEWS giggly salaciously while relaying the false info about Sarah and shopping trips?

If so, he and FOX owe Sarah an on air apology.

bad

Jane, he's obviously ready to move on to a different job. Impeachment is a way out...

Jane

That's fine with me bad. I'll even give him a pass to get lost. Hell, I'll pay him to get lost.

bad

Word on the skreet (okay, word from National Inquirer) is that Michelle is so jealous of Oprah that she won't permit contact between Barry and Oprah.

That's shocking from the world's most glamerous women. What has she to fear from weight challenged, much older, Oprah?

bad

womAn

little Freudian slip there...

Porchlight

Gee, bad, Michelle doesn't seem like the jealous type.

bad

It's a shocker, Porch. Kinda makes my bad little mind wonder when the jealousy started. Bali, Baker...?

daddy

I'll be serving grey goose, Dacu, and pinot grigio..."

Will be there in spirit Jane, but not in spirits.

The NYT has a story on Palin's stylist who confirms Sarah was telling the truth about the clothes that caused such a controversy.

I haven't seen anything coming from Sarah Palin that has ever given me the idea she would be dishonest or lie. I don't think she has it in her.

bad

All of the news outlets who reported on the original story of Sarah and the clothes need to report the stylists story.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Why, bad? She isn't Barack Obama. And she details every gory detail of the clothes fiasco in the book, right down to the $70 pantyhose she refused to wear.

I think your implication that Sarah is such a liar she needs outside confirmation is really odd. How low is your opinion of her anyway?

Sue

I think your implication that Sarah is such a liar she needs outside confirmation is really odd. How low is your opinion of her anyway?

Probably not as odd as I think your post to bad is.

Captain Hate

I think you misinterpreted bad's remark; she means (I believe) that everybody that misreported the original story needs to correct it.

bad

Sara, I thought I was making a statement about journalistic integrity but I obviously communicate badly.

Porchlight

Sara,

Not to speak for bad, but my view is that the fact that NYT ran the story will go a long way with people who aren't predisposed to believe Sarah's version of events in the book.

IOW "wow, we were wrong about Palin" stories from major players in the MSM would have a big impact. I wish it didn't have to be that way. But if we want the Muddl
