K-Lo, Your recent Corner post on Palin is right on. Although she will quickly get subsumed in the Presidential debate furor, the MSM has succeeded in making her a liability with Democrats and and a source of uncertainty about McCain with Independents/Undecideds.  A few impromptu and short on-the-record conversations will do wonders to correct that, especially with the latter group. She is obviously intelligent and articulate, and by now she knows the themes of McCain’s campaign. Time to stop worrying about word-for-word talking points and have her participate in the daily conversation. This is no Biden Gaffe Machine (BGM?), and the ‘realness’ is what people like about her. Hearing her directly will reassure them, destroy the MSM red-flag theme of “she’s afraid to talk”, and recover part of the lost Palin bounce.
