WASILLA, Alaska: The rain in Spain falls mainly on the Arctic plain ...
I hope John McCain doesn't throw his slippers at Sarah Palin's head or get as acerbic as Henry Higgins did with Eliza Doolittle when she did not learn quickly enough. McCain's Pygmalion has to be careful, because his Galatea might be armed with more than a sharp tongue.
For the first time in American history, we have a "My Fair Lady" moment, as teams of experts bustle around the most famous woman in politics, intensely coaching her for her big moment at the ball - her first unscripted interview this week here with ABC's Charlie Gibson.
Eliza, by George, got it and brought off the coup of passing herself off as a Hungarian princess rather than a Covent Garden flower seller. Sarah's challenge is far tougher, and that's why she's pulling the political equivalent of an all-nighter. She doesn't have to pass herself off as a different class or change her voice or be more highfalutin. The McCain campaign is reveling in its anti-intellectual tenor.
Sarah, who is now so renowned that she is known merely by one name and has a name ID of 90 percent, has to be a Kmart mom who appeals to Kmart moms and dads. She's already shown that she can shoot the pig, bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan. Now all she has to do is prove that she can be the leader of the free world on a moment's notice, and field dress Vladimir Putin as adeptly as she can a moose.

Poor Mo..... she's not half the woman Sarah Palin is, and her bitterness cannot be drowned in cosmopolitans. She should get a position as the fifth woman of the Sex and the City quartet.
As for Governor Palin, yes I do trust her to handle Putin, and Ahmedinajad, and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi too!
Yes, he's been around long enough to have gotten both the Cold War and the War on Terror wrong!
MD is proving herself once again to be a bitter woman jealous of one who has natural talent and is not part of the Eastern Elite cesspool that spawned her.
Joe Biden stayed at a Holiday Inn1
Kind of like that part, actually.
Maureen, how you evoke elitist imagery.
The elephant er donkey in the room is not only Obama's supreme lack of qualifications to lead anything except maybe a roadside trash pickup team is Biden being wrong on everything including and especially the Iraq War. I guess clownettes like Dowd aren't ashamed of being branded with a very large H for hypocrisy.
Dowd’s writing ability, imho, is more suited for a college newspaper.
Dowd, u a priss... too werdy and in luv with u-self.... go do somethin that’s reel..
How's MODO's cougar hunt going?
everything wrong except the biggest red button issue for the left: the reason we went to war in iraq.
Take that issue off the table, say that both agree that life starts at conception and what’s left are a bunch of liberal positions that nobody likes.
