Palin-Induced Suicide Watch Part 10173

Someone run to Rich Lowry's house. Confiscate the knives and shoelaces. His Palin Apostasy might not seem troubling....

It’s just too absurd. Palin mentioned Alaska or Alaskans 34 times in a 17-minute statement that must be a new record in the history of protesting too much. Palin says she hates politics as usual, and true to her word, on July 3 she staged a spectacle in politics as unusual. But she still proved adept at the traditional political art of extreme disingenuousness...(hatred from liberals) can’t propel her into the presidency. For that she needs substance, not the hackneyed sound bites she clings to for dear life.
....until one recalls the depth of his love just a few months ago which he described in an NRO Corner post he no doubt typed one-handed:

I'm sure I'm not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, "Hey, I think she just winked at me." And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can't be learned; it's either something you have or you don't, and man, she's got it.

And now all of the sudden he wants substance and hates hackneyed sound bites? Get a grip, Rich. On something other than your wang during Vice-Presidential debates.


BT adds, huh?
Wherever she goes, she’ll draw crowds and attention. If she can command $60,000 per paid speech, as an aide speculates, she’ll match her annual gubernatorial salary with a mere two gigs. That’s welcome income for a woman who isn’t rich and who has five children and one grandkid.
Palin's net worth is over a million and she makes $250k/year. That's not rich?
