The Brits are onto something big: Sarah Palin.

(G-d knows they like Michael.)
Why we’ve decided that February will be ‘Sarah Palin Month’ on Telegraph Blogs
Toby Harnden:

So the celebrated DC wit and Washington Post columist Dana Milbank is boycotting Sarah Palin for the month of February, and encouraging everyone else to do the same. Here’s the case he makes. Well, it’s certainly true that there is a media obsession with Palin. It’s worth noting, though, that this is most pronounced on the Left. The Democrats want Palin (or Rush Limbaugh or Michelle Bachmann) to be the head of the Republican Party because they think that makes the party less palatable.

Certainly, Palin enjoys publicity. But she has been on the receiving end of some extremely nasty stuff, particularly Andrew Sullivan’s lunatic ravings about her son Trig’s parentage and, most recently, the blame laid at her door for the Tucson atrocity.

(For the record, Sarah Palin is the one potential candidate who could displace my active support of Herman Cain for President. She hasn’t announced. There are some decent and satisfactory potential candidates in the wings, but of these, Cain remains at the top for me.)

My thanks to Harnden and his colleagues across the pond. They’ve been doing a much more objective analysis of American news, in many instances, than we do ourselves.

      THanks Liberty Belle!
      I hope Sarah runs – even if she doesn’t win.

      …as to the great find, more Python skits are over on You-Tube.
