Forgetting Sarah Palin

If there is any upside to financial meltdown of the last weeks or so, it is that we, the voting public, have been given a welcome respite from all things Sarah Palin.

Tomorrow is the vice-presidential debates, which will probably not change any substantial number of votes, but has the potential for the guilty pleasure at watching someone make a fool of themselves. If Sarah's recent performances are any indicator, the evening promises much comic fodder. Tina Fey may actually look more presidential.

Her handlers have been shielding her from any contact with a discerning public, with the not overly surprising effect that even her lukewarm supporters have begun to grow bored with her.

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to see her fade back in to obscurity, her brief moment of notoriety reduced to little more than a footnote in the history books and a few random subpoenas.
