The LA Times finally finds a voice from Wasilla they can trust

The Los Angeles Times has found proof that Sarah Palin was a horrible choice for vice president.  Why?  Because a Wasilla-based indie rock band says so, that's why! (links in the original, emphasis mine):

Wasilla, Alaska, isn't exactly an indie-rock mecca, but one band of note does hail from the area -- the loud and dreamy rock combo with the odd name Portugal. the Man. Singer-guitarist John Baldwin Gourley and bassist Zachary Scott Carothers grew up and started playing music together near the isolated town and still spend considerable time there.
Sarah Palin is so hot that the band often goes shirtless, even in winter.
Gourley's blog post is mostly philosophical. Under the heading "Sarah Palin, Because We Don't Need It," he writes of the first time his father took him hunting for moose, when he was about 6. The pair quickly spotted their quarry, but his father pulled back. They didn't kill the moose "because we don't need it," he explained to his son.

" 'Because we don't need it' was something that has been taught to me every day of my life through these amazing people," Gourley writes of his parents, who were Iditarod dog-sled mushers and continue to live an Alaskan life. "And to watch Sarah Palin get so much attention based on what? Two years as governor of the state of Alaska? Or is it based on her time as the mayor of Wasilla? The town of 5,000 at the time."

Wow, a philosophical MySpace blog.  I dated someone who had one of those once.  Let's just say it was hard to pretend that anything there was thought-provoking.

My guess is this brain trust's blog isn't much different.

Attention David Frum!

When the Barracuda took on the Washington elite in her speech last night, she wasn't just talking about the New York Times and Us Weekly.  She was talking about any media personality who says things like this (emphasis mine):

Briefly, the Palin choice will intensify GOP support among downscale white voters - while adding to the GOP's difficulties among more educated white voters.
From where I'm sitting, I see only one downscale white voter, and I think he needs to realize that not everyone who connects with Sarah Palin is a drooling rube.

The American people see what the media is doing to Gov. Palin

51% of Americans think the media is trying to politically damage Gov. Palin.  I wonder, will the media, liberal elite and nutroots stop slandering Palin, knowing that they're running risk of a backlash?  Are they even capable of stopping?

See what I mean?  I don't think they're even capable of controlling their hatred at this point.

Eff you, Roger Simon

The Politico writer got on his ultra-snarky gloves on to write this "apology" to the Palin's for the media's detestable behavior:

On behalf of the media, I would like to say we are sorry.

On behalf of the elite media, I would like to say we are very sorry.

We have asked questions this week that we should never have asked.

We have asked pathetic questions like: Who is Sarah Palin? What is her record? Where does she stand on the issues? And is she is qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency?

We have asked mean questions like: How well did John McCain know her before he selected her? How well did his campaign vet her? And was she his first choice?

Bad questions. Bad media. Bad.

It is not our job to ask questions. Or it shouldn’t be. To hear from the pols at the Republican National Convention this week, our job is to endorse and support the decisions of the pols.
The rest of it just gets worse. 

I have to admit, though, it's fun to see them on the defense after the past few days.

The worst Keith Olberman could do...

"People who like this sort of thing will find this... the sort of thing they like."

I have a feeling it's going to be a fun 2 months.
