Palin Shmalin

Obama in Michigan today:

"I mean, you can't just make stuff up," Obama said of a new McCain ad that says Palin "stopped the Bridge to Nowhere." "You can't just recreate yourself. You can't just reinvent yourself. The American people aren't stupid."

If you are a Republican, apparently you get a blank check to reinvent yourself whenever you feel like it.

Just remember:

- Sarah Palin actually did say: "thanks, but no thanks for the bridge" -- after she supported building it during the her gubernatorial election campaign.... When it became unpopular, she abandoned the bridge -- but Alaska still took the money, thank you very much.

- She didn't really fire her chef, just gave her a different job title and she kept cooking!

- The Alaskan governor's jet was used more than 50% of the time to transport prisoners, not the Governor living high off the hog.

- Oh, I forgot. Palin did not sell the jet on eBay. She just put it up on eBay as a political stunt and later had to sell it at a loss. Given they still probably have to shuttle prisoners around, the deal has probably been a political plus and a financial minus. (Why is this not surprising?)

This has all come up in a little more than ten days. You wonder what else we're going to hear about.
