I think I'm as cynical about Sarah Palin's future prospects as any of her fans. The media HATES her with an astounding passion, and will do absolutely anything they have to, to see to it that she never is elected to national office. And I'm not talking about the Rachel Maddow's and Joy Behar's of the world - I expect it from them. I mean the self described 'impartial' media. They're the ones who will leave no lie untold to keep Sarah in the background of American politics. She's not as dim as they think she is; conservatives never are. But for liberals the mythology matters far more than the facts.
With all that though, I'd like to see Katy Couric or whoopie Goldberg do something like this. For the denizens of the upper west side, going to a Greek restaurant in Queens is about the biggest chance they're willing to take. And for that reason if nothing else, I think this is really cool.
