Palin Discusses Her Wardrobe at Campaign Rally.

Unbelievable. Talk about too little, too late. Now she wants to "go authentic". This is an example of Palin breaking away from the McCain camp and trying to begin her own bid to be the Republican nominee in 2012.

What she's really saying is that, "They did that to me". The problem with this strategy is that it ignores the fact that the $150,000 wardrobe was only the straw that broke the camel's back. That wasn't what was wrong with the idea of proposing her as VP.

The fundamental wrong with Palin's bid to be VP was her staggering ignorance of politics in general and the role of the VP in particular.


As I suspected this was Palin striking out on her own away from the McCain camp.

A senior adviser to John McCain told CNN's Dana Bash that the comments about her wardrobe "were not the remarks we sent to her plane this morning." Palin did not discuss the wardrobe story at her rally in Kissimmee later in the day.

But in Tampa, Palin happily broached the clothing issue after being introduced by "The View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who accused Palin's opponents of being "fixated on her wardrobe" and "deliberately sexist."
