Frank Rich is a pretty funny guy, at least to us, but I'm sure that for the Palin/McCain campaign - perhaps Rich is more like a shark attack because his every word is so terribly true.
His new column, "The Palin-Whatshisname Ticket".
Palin really does come off as a ruthless individual who is completely capable of doing anything and everything despicable to get what she wants. Palin is a queen of mean that makes the late Leona Helmsley look like a benevolent soul.
No longer able to remember his principles any better than he can distinguish between Sunnis and Shia, McCain stands revealed as a guy who can be easily rolled by anyone who sells him a plan for “victory,” whether in Iraq or in Michigan. A McCain victory on Election Day will usher in a Palin presidency, with McCain serving as a transitional front man, an even weaker Bush to her Cheney.
The ambitious Palin and the ruthless forces she represents know it, too. You can almost see them smacking their lips in anticipation, whether they’re wearing lipstick or not.
Mr. Rich says the Palin thing will take care of itself and that sounds exactly right to me too. She's got massive problems that are starting to show themselves, so just let it happen.
