I was initially confused by McCain's choice of the freshman Governor from Alaska, but I have to admit that she is the only candidate on either ticket that represents anything that could be considered "change" from what we all consider to be a broken federal government. The folks at SNL have sure had their fun with Governor Palin this fall, and all things considered she has been a pretty good sport, which is far more than can be said about another woman on the campaign trail this year- Michelle Obama.
Patrick Buchanan raised a fair point in his article about Palin's portrayal in the media when he questioned why SNL has yet to parody the Senator from Illinois wife. Pat, the answer is obvious- they have an agenda and to laugh at Michelle Obama would ruin the possibility of getting her soon-to-be president husband to host the show later this fall. It is as simple and pathetic as that.
