Like everything in life, there's good and bad news involved. The good news? US Politics Guide Kathy Gill points out that "Palin [Is] A Financial Hit" - apparently McCain raised over $10 million during the long Labor Day weekend following his VP announcement.
The bad news? The UK's Daily Mail online goes into it in great detail - the many skeletons now turning up in Palin's closet. Included is her husband's involvement in a group whose members include advocates for Alaska's secession from the US; her pregnant daughter's hockey star boyfriend who, on his MySpace page, calls himself "a f***ing redneck" and says he doesn't want kids; and a clip of Palin laughing during a radio interview at nasty statements made about another elected female politician who is a cancer survivor.
After her daughter Bristol's pregnancy was revealed, some said it wasn't a problem, as it proved that Sarah Palin was a real woman with a real family facing real problems. But with this most recent round of revelations, the question arises - how much reality is the American public willing to put up with?
