Palin well-suited to Iowa

Palin "well-suited to Iowa"?!?

Well, that's what former McCain pollster Bill McInturff said, anyway. She ain't well suited to me as an Iowan...

Or maybe he meant she'll be well-suited in the $150k clothes.

Snark aside, the guy has a point: "He conceded that Palin creates 'a sharply different reaction with swing voters and core primary voters' but said the latter 'are not anywhere close to the center.'" Or, all the base are belong to her.

People are mad about Rick Warren... but not the people you think:

  • Pat Robertson's CBN: "Liberals and gay activists aren’t happy with Barack Obama for choosing pro-life and prop 8 supporting pastor Rick Warren to give the invocation at Obama’s inaugural. But pro-life (sic) readers seem to be equally upset at Warren for agreeing to it."

  • Pastordan at Street Prophets: "On a strictly professional level, this is a goddamn embarrassment. Nobody likes Warren. The Religious Right think he's a flake because he's too liberal, and everybody else thinks he's a flake because he's a shallow idiot. Obama could have gotten a better invocation from Stuart Smalley. It would have as much depth, and at least it would be doing a Democrat a favor."

  • As for Stuart, Norm Coleman's lead is down to five votes and the battle over the last ballots is moving to court. I'm betting on two empty Senate chairs come Jan. 5: Minnesota and Illinois.
