re: The Advice Excuse

It’s not an excuse. At least when I wrote it. (I think we’re beyond that now.) It was an explanation and a warning — to her as much as the campaign. In fact, fwiw, I directed my concerns to her when I wrote last week: 

For (Uncle) Sam’s sake. You’re Sarah Palin. You’re governor of Alaska. You’re the mom of five. You’re married to a tough guy. You can handle America’s Former Sweetheart. And yet, you didn’t. She may have come off catty, but you came off hesitant and unprepared. What happened to the pitbull? I see the lipstick.

I think we saw a little more of Sarah Palin with Hugh and Sean in the last few days. And tonight it’s all Sarah so we’ll see if she does have that good judgment you gotta hope she does. 

I wish her the best. Because I wish America the best.
