Ms. Palin was already profiled before she was announced as a candidate in the new Wall Street Journal lifestyle magazine, WSJ., where she explains her marathon training (yes, she does that, too) and confesses that her idea of breakfast is a “skinny white-chocolate mocha.”

Actually, the WSJ article didn't mention marathons. That came from the FR thread Sarah Palin runs Marathon with a blazing time of 3:59:36.

Before Gov. Sarah Palin came flying in from the wilds of Alaska ...

In the '60 I was "fortunate" enough to serve in the US Army with a young man from New York City named Eddie Baldwin. Eddie was the most NY-centric individual I have ever met. Nice enough personally, but fatally naive. As far as Eddie knew, a special branch of the NYC utilities crew put the sun away somewhere at about sundown in NYC only bring it back out, and hang in the Eastern sky for another day of providing light and warmth for him and his friends. I had him thoroughly convinced that we still had Indian uprisings to deal with in the West.

Our intrepid correspondent, David Carr, displays a similar lack of understanding of how things are to the west of his stompin' grounds.

Ms. O’Hara was fired up by all the sudden energy, but a bit suspicious of those who were there to cover it.

“Conservatives have a bad history with The New York Times,” she said, looking at my press ID, still smiling and still very friendly. “How can I be sure that you won’t take my words and twist them to suit some agenda that you already have

Yep, Ms O'Hara. Sounds like a Freeper.lol

Actually, the WSJ article mentions her marathons in the subheadline, thus:

Running Alaska:
For Sarah Palin, a marathoner, mother of five and the first female governor of Alaska, running has always been a family affair—and a critical distraction.

Palin ought to steal the line uttered by the former Dem. gov. of Texas, Ann Richards.

Talking about the ability of women to compete in the workplace, she said, “Y’all remember that famous dance team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. She did all that fabulous dancing while going backward in 4 inch heels.”

> “Jesus was a Community Organizer”

He was no such thing.

He was a preacher of the Gospel, a healer, a worker of miracles.

He had no home to call his own.

Unlike Jesus, “Community Organizers” like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Barrack Obama, enrich themselves, fatten their portfolios, and basically live large on salaries and perks and graft provided by “community organizations” funded by federal grants and liberal white-guilt foundations.

What a pathetic comparison.

I kept asking myself if this really was in the Slimes.

The “MEE-de-ah” and the dRATs were taken to the wood shed.

I am, am not, am, am not, am, am not a Muslim and ‘plugs’
are done.

Thank you Gov Sarah Palin - you've reorganized our community

In the press galleries at the convention, journalists wrinkled their noses in disgust when Piper, Ms. Palin’s youngest daughter, was filmed kitty-licking her baby brother’s hair into place. But to many Americans — including some I talked to in the convention hall — that looked like family church on Sunday, evidence of good breeding and sibling regard.

How ridiculous! To anyone with common sense it was cute and funny. It should they are just like any other American family.

still uses “Ms.”

feminist insult to palin.

(RATHER than “Mrs.” or “Governor”, it is akin to Mr. Bush vs President Bush)

the NYT can never ever be trusted.
