Palin likes books less than W.

I have nothing to substantiate that, but I had to post something here.  She tried to ban some books, a possibly phony list of which appears here.  Whatever, book banning is dumb.  As is creationism.

I also have to say, hearing the clips from her “incredible” “inspiring” speech last night, that it was mostly OH SNAP! moments and very, very little to make a case for her, for McCain, or for their ticket.  I’m glad she can string together a coherent sentence, unlike W., but it takes more than that to be V.P.  I think.

    Palin’s addition to the ticket takes Republican faux-feminism to a whole new level. As Adam Serwer pointed out on TAPPED, this is in fact a condescending move by the GOP. It plays to the assumption that disaffected Hillary Clinton supporters did not care about her politics — only her gender. In picking Palin, Republicans are lending credence to the sexist assumption that women voters are too> stupid to investigate or care about the issues, and merely want to> vote for someone who looks like them. As Serwer noted, it’s akin to> choosing Alan Keyes in an attempt to compete with Obama for votes> from black Americans.
