Another Palin Slide Show

At the NY Daily News.

These are the supposedly "funny" and "rugged" photos that might embarrass her. I doubt it. The most photogenic candidate in U.S. presidential campaign history does not take a bad snapshot.

I attended a harvest party at the local vineyard this evening, where I purposely avoided the topic of politics (still too soon) but it came up anyway. The women seemed guardedly excited by the VP candidate and the men decidedly enthusiastic. Maybe the polls won't reflect this for a few weeks yet, but if my own small rural town is any indication there is the quiet rumbling of the earthquake preceding the landslide.

Barring the unforeseen, this election will change history.
