Sarah Palin, Wink Wink!


Pluses and Minuses of La Passionaria Palin’s Performance Last Night —

Plus: Truly excellent black dress

Minus: Tourette’s-like inability to control winks

Plus: Excellent, if robotic, command of foreign leader’s funny names

Minus: Bizarre predilection for keeping an infant up at night

Plus: Reintroducing a lexicon last heard on the Andy Griffith show (or maybe that’s a minus?)

Minus: Repeating dumb allegation that Obama voted against a particular bill aiding Iraq troops, which McCain also voted against. (Or maybe that’s a plus?)
