She doesn't read -

We now know Palin doesn't read books and it has become very clear she doesn't read newspapers, but how hard is it to remember the names of a few of them.

Will this kind of generalizing really win out because she looks cute when she wrinkles her nose and knowledgeable when she sets her lips?   We now know what our politicians should have been studying.  Instead of law school, they should have learned to exaggerate their gestures on TV so as not to look flat.

Palin in her interview with Couric:

Asked what newspapers and magazines she reads, Palin said, "I've read most of them." Pressed by Couric for examples, Palin declined. "Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years," she said. Again asked to name a few, Palin said, "I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, 'Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?' Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America."

If she is representative of Alaska, let's pray that is not true.
