With a month to go, chafing could be a concern.

From Rich Lowry at the NRO:

A very wise TV executive once told me that the key to TV is projecting through the screen. It’s one of the keys to the success of, say, a Bill O’Reilly, who comes through the screen and grabs you by the throat. Palin too projects through the screen like crazy. I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can’t be learned; it’s either something you have or you don’t, and man, she’s got it.

Ahhh…yeah. Somebody get that guy a towel.

If you’d like to send Mr. Lowry a box of tissues or an industrial-sized bottle of personal lubricant, here’s the addy:

National Review
215 Lexington Avenue
New York, New York 10016


  1. wow, that bordered on creepy. Sure she is attractive when compared to other female politicos, like janet reno or condi rice
    but my response when she winked was, “I cant believe that crazy seal clubber just winked at the camera.”

  2. Mr. Lowry apparently hasn’t gotten the word that the proper meme to cite under such circumstances is:

    “I’ll be in mah bunk.”

    /always happy to help
