As long as we are in the business of naming names, Palin, who is failing as McCain's first-round draft choice, says that when somebody called her a "redneck", she said "Thank you." There's obviously a tough woman under that $150,000 designer wardrobe.

Just in time for Christmas
JOHN AND SARAH are now off on what they are calling their Joe the Plumber campaign tour to lure blue-collar workers in the final days of their war hoop. I have to salute them: Never has an obscure human being meant so much to the rhetoric of a presidential campaign as Joe the Plumber. His name will be added to the pantheon of American pop culture alongside Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman as inspirational reminders of how pro-America goes about its seasonal business. Obviously blindsided by the introduction of a free agent into the McCain playbook, it appears anti-America Obama has nothing to match it, proving once again that he doesn't have the imagination and experience to run the country. So much for the October surprise.
