Regarding Sarah Palin (and One or Two Other Things):
1. So John McCain thinks women are so stupid that all a candidate needs is a vagina to please them? One hole's as good as another, eh, maverick? It's like he thought, "You call that inexperience? I'll show you inexperience." Except that'd be suicidal. (Bonus points for McCain's introduction, which sounded like a cheap beauty pageant entrance: "She's not from these parts and she's not from Washington. But when you get to know her, you're going to be as impressed as I am." It's like a nominee for prom queen in Walla-Walla in 1952.)

2. Starting tomorrow and for the entire week, the Rude Pundit will be in Minneapolis/St. Paul, as one of the writers for Lizz Winstead's Shoot the Messenger (at the Parkway Theater September 2-4). Oh, and the Republican Convention is there. He's still trying to secure credentials for the actual big event, but has lots of plans otherwise, involving audio shit and interviews and more.

But if anyone has some spare credentials just laying around....

3. Where should the Rude Pundit drink in downtown Minneapolis?
