Oy vey! So this is how to handle them bloggers? Thanks for my morning chortle walking back from the driveway this morning with the Sunday New York Times:
And four months ago, a Wasilla blogger, Sherry Whitstine, who chronicles the governor’s career with an astringent eye, answered her phone to hear an assistant to the governor on the line, she said.
“You should be ashamed!” Ivy Frye, the assistant, told her. “Stop blogging. Stop blogging right now!”
And how dare you exercise the First Amendment!
But PharmGirl just castigated me on putting this up, saying that we really need to get over the silliness and get back to hammering on which candidate will be most likely to address the challenges facing the US and its place in the world. This NYT editorial later in today’s paper is actually a good way to start and places in proper perspective Gov Palin’s much-maligned performance in this week’s Charlie Gibson interviews.
With apologies also to those who read the title of the post and thought I’d be talking about Catherine, the lovely wife of Bora Zivkovic (Coturnix).
Time to make the coffee.
