New York on Palin.

The Sarah Palin story is okay. Now that I've finally read it, I'm pretty sure David Weigel's item on it gets one bit wrong. "According to Sherman," he says, "Palin writes her own Facebook posts."

Sherman says nothing of the kind:

And she’s a canny—and completely modern—promoter of her product. Last year, Bristol introduced her mom to Facebook, and Palin began speaking to her audience of 1.5 million fans directly with frequent status updates and tweets, which consist of conservative boilerplate (“Man-Made Global Warming=Snow Job”) interspersed with chirpy reports about goings-on in Wasilla (“Family is getting ready for Todd’s IronDog race tomorrow; I’m watching @GlennBeck on TV now giving #CPAC speech, while racers are in garage).

(Maybe HotAir and General Lee will stop high-fiving each other long enough to notice?)
