Daily Reading (9/2/08)

Daily Reading

The more things change... A great Didion essay from 1988 on political conventions.

Sarah Palin on Issues (An archived site from when she ran for governor.) And here are some quotes and sermons from her pastors.

Sarah Palin's mother-in-law may vote for Obama.

John Dickerson's headline says it all: Palin's candidacy is fun to cover but raises serious questions about McCain's judgment.

More on the secessionist party Palin may have joined.

An interesting take on Patty Hearst.

Uh, wow. The City Clerk's office in Wasilla says it has not been asked for any documents concerning Palin's term as mayor. Vetting? What vetting?

Oh, and here's a refreshingly fast-based (if dry) profile of Palin.

Eek! There's going to be a new Madeline book. Not sure how I feel about that.

The Final Days of the Presidency of George W. Bush

Interesting article on Patty Hearst. My dad had brough home some SLA ditto sheets, after the murder of Marcus Foster. They were crazy.

Re: the Rep VP. I'm not crazy about her politics but if I hear one more person say that she can't hold the job because she should be home with her children, I may not be responsible. The whole point of equality between genders (and race) is that we are not constrained by biology or what other people think we're incapable of.
