There's Just Something Unnerving About This Newsweek Cover

The latest edition of Newsweek magazine canonizes former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on its cover as a "saint" in American politics, despite no evidence of Palin performing a miracle during her short time on the national stage.

Quite frankly, the Newsweek cover pictured at left is very unnerving.  

If you consider Sarah Palin completely unbearable now, imagine what may happen if being called a "saint" goes to the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee's head.

Heavens to betsy!

Any thoughts?  Consider this an open thread.

She sure knows how to...

send the chattering class into convulsions.

The funny thing is that this will probably be Newsweek's biggest selling cover of the year (which would take, what, at least a couple hundred copies sold....).

If I didn't know better, I would say that there is some concern among Democrats about the rise of effective women candidates and spokespersons in the GOP.

assumptions

There may be an unwarranted assumption in your concern about Palin's "sainthood" going to her head.

Anything for sales!

Newsweek must be trying to capilize on the half-term Governor's popularity with the right wing fringe to sell a few extra copies.
