Garrison Keillor, as always, has the pithy-est take on the Republican pick for VP:
“It was dishonest, cynical men who put forward a clueless young woman for national office, hoping to juice up the ticket, hoping she could skate through two months of chaperoned campaigning, but the truth emerges: The lady is talking freely about matters she has never thought about. The American people have an ear for B.S. They can tell when someone’s mouth is moving and the clutch is not engaged.”
Thank you, Mr. Keillor, for encapsulating all that is weird and scary about Palin in a perfectly-penned paragraph.
