Sarah Does Philly

Sarah Palin, the Republican who may be running for president or just nurturing her special brand in American politics, took Independence National Historical Park by storm Tuesday afternoon in Philadelphia. It was media circus extraordinaire, a frenzy more commonly associated with, say, Lindsay Lohan checking into or out of rehab than presidential politics. Here is The Philadelphia Inquirer's coverage.

Colleague Bill Bender of the Philadelphia Daily News has this fun piece that analyzes the Sarah hype and concludes that the lamestream media is being had.

Later, Sarah schepped to New York, where she and her brood had pizza with none other than Donald Trump, at a Times Square pizzeria called Famiglia. Sushannah Walshe of the Daily Beast, co-author of a biography of Palin called Sarah from Alaska, has the story.


On a scale of 1 to 5, how would you rate Sarah Palin as a presidential candidate (with 1 being lowest and 5 being highest)?
