Media reactions to Sarah Palin

The following two reputable news services respond to Sarah Palin's new status as John McCain's running mate.

On a related note: regarding Palin's "foreign policy experience" - not only does much of her experience stem from being in a state so near Russia, I learned today that she received her first U.S. Passport in 2007. Just to clear up any confusion - it is now 2008 (that's not long...).

Now on to the news... Thanks to Elizabeth and Nina for letting me know about these!

In case you were hoping for more mainstream news, there's a pretty good commentary on Palin by Giovanna Negretti from the Boston Globe. CLICK HERE

And if that's not enough for you, check out this spectacular op-ed by Maureen Dowd in today's New York Times. To give you a taste:

So imagine my delight, my absolute astonishment, when the hokey chick flick came out on the trail, a Cinderella story so preposterous it’s hard to believe it’s not premiering on Lifetime. Instead of going home and watching “Miss Congeniality” with Sandra Bullock, I get to stay here and watch “Miss Congeniality” with Sarah Palin.
