Palin to be profiled in People Magazine and the Wall Street Journal!

The Anchorage Daily News' "Alaska Politics" blog is reporting that two major national media outlets are working on profiles of Gov. Palin. First, they confirm earlier reports that People Magazine will be featuring Palin in an upcoming issue. The article will "focus particular attention on Palin as mother of five children". In addition, it the ADN is reporting that Wall Street Journal writer Jim Carlton is putting together a "more general" profile. No word yet on exact publication dates, but I'm expecting both to appear relatively soon. People's people were in Alaska for Palin's photo shoot over a month ago, so they should be getting close to publication.

abc.com has a story today on the veepstakes. they include Gov. Palin in the discussion. They also say, if I understand this inside trader stuff, that McCain's most likely pick is a dark horse, someone other than the expected top tier guys, such as Romney, Huckabee, Leiberman.
Here's the link.

Dr. Vicki,

I did see the ABC article, pretty cool.

...and thanks for noticing the "People people" illiteration, I was rather tickled by the idea myself.

CNN Still Can't Bring Itself to Say Palin's Name

Last night on Election Center with Campbell Brown, a bunch of CNN talking heads discussed potential VP's for John McCain. They mentioned about 12 names overall, and also threw in a couple nonsensical wildcards just for one. One person they didn't mention? Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin.

It's becoming embarrassing to the MSM to watch their avoidance of a VP candidate nearly every serious pundit and analyst considers to be one of the frontrunners, but one of the best choices for McCain. Bill Kristol of the New York Times and The Weekly Standard actually came out a short while ago and flat-out predicted that Palin would be McCain's VP choice. But instead of even mentioning her name, CNN touted Joe Lieberman as the best option for McCain and one of their "experts" even claimed "the right would love it". They must have been talking to the three Obamacons again (oh those ever elusive Obamacons...). This kind of crap reporting is why CNN is getting clobbered by Fox News.

How typical. I agree with previous commentors on this topic. It really appears as if the MSM is quite frightened of Gov. Palin. Let's hope McCain makes the right choice.

If you're a Republican, when in doubt, do the exact opposite of what the mainstream media is telling you to do. works every time.

Out of 37 possible Republican VP candidates listed at Intrade, Sarah Palin is listed today as the fourth highest candidate. Only Huckabee, Pawlenty, and Romney have higher trade numbers. And yet MSM barely mentions her name or posts photos of her.

I've been so mad at the MSM that I actually downgraded my DISH subscription so that I don't even get MSNBC anymore. It was so biased I couldn't even stand the idea that any of my money was going to pay for it. I saw that CNN show you're talking about. David Gergen is so in the tank for Obama he couldn't even stay on the topic of the Republican veepstakes. I also noticed today that in Realclearpolitics poll of polls Obama's lead on McCain is down another two tenths of a percent to 5.5. I think an exciting, edgey vp pick like Sarah Palin would close that gap to nothing. I sure hope he doesn't pick some white guy in a suit.

dr. vicki, I, of course, also hope McCain selects Palin, not merely because Palin, far and away, is the best of the potential Veeps, BUT BECAUSE IT WOULD NOW APPEAR THAT MCCAIN'S VICTORY IN NOVEMBER NOTHING LESS THAN DEPENDS UPON THAT SELECTION!

Nah, McCain is going to win anyway. The last Northn Liberal to be elected President, was Jack Kennedy, and in fact Kennedy was a bit of a Conservative, not a Liberal like his brothers.

quick update. Realclearpolitics now has obama's lead down three more tenths to 5.2. McCain is within striking distance.

Gallup today.

Obama 46%
McCain 44%

Kristofer, national polls don't really matter. Watch the polls in the battleground states. Obama is consistently but marginally ahead in Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Dead even back and forth in New Hampshire, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada and Virginia, and further ahead in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Palin can potentially make the difference in any or all of those states.
