THE DEFINITIVE SARAH PALIN
Seriously, this article (exposé, really) in Vanity Fair says it all...
Ms. Palin and family will do well to get out now before it gets any trickier for them. The game they have been playing has always been beyond their capabilities.
Palin ought to ride off into the sunset before becoming un-electable, even in Alaska. Indeed, this may already be the case as she has (as of 01 July 2009) not officially submitted her name for re-election in 2010. That filing deadline, however, isn't until 01 January 2010.
By the way, for the curious, here is the Wikipedia page all about "Narcissistic Personality Disorder" mentioned in the Vanity Fair piece.
