Sarah Plainview

September 18, 2008

Steve Coll in The New Yorker on the video of Sarah Palin at the Wasilla Assembly of God Pentecostal church:

“The YouTube version of the Governor’s idiosyncratic narrative of faith, ambition, motherhood, and frontier life has a slightly different ring from the received version, which débuted at the Republican Convention last month; the video does not evoke “Northern Exposure” so much as it does “There Will Be Blood.” There are about fifty days left until a national election of unusual consequence; perhaps there is still time for journalists to fully vet what McCain did not.”
