Greg Piper, media darling

In case I haven't personally mobbed you to tell you how excited I am about being excerpted at The Week for my blog post on Sarah Palin at The Moderate Voice, where technically I'm still a contributor, I'll tell you now.

The “gorgeous” Palin is not just John McCain’s new “attack dog,” said Greg Piper in the blog The Moderate Voice. “She is his Obama, just as Joe Biden is Obama’s McCain.” Palin “is as entertaining as Obama is inspiring,” and Democrats are “furious that Republicans have someone just as telegenic and spunky as their man.”
