Britain's View of Palin

The UK Times Online has a piece today about Sarah Palin that is far more objective than then American media's reporting:

When Sarah Palin stepped into the spotlight as John McCain's running mate in Dayton, Ohio, and promised that women could "shatter that glass ceiling once and for all", it was an electrifying moment in a presidential election that had already produced its share of upsets and surprises.

History was on the march again the morning after Barack Obama became the first African-American to accept his party's White House nomination. After the fireworks, the 80,000-strong crowd who had cheered Obama to the skies at the Mile High stadium in Denver woke up with a hangover.

And check out Camille Paglia's take on Palin as published in the article:

"We may be seeing the first woman president. As a Democrat, I am reeling," said Camille Paglia, the cultural critic. "That was the best political speech I have ever seen delivered by an American woman politician. Palin is as tough as nails."

"Good Lord, we had barely 12 hours of Democrat optimism," said Paglia. "It was a stunningly timed piece of PR by the Republicans."

The British press did a great job defining Michele Obama as well, too bad none of the US press ran the stories. Or did any kind of investigative reporting about either of the Obamas.
