And her little dog too!

Sweet Nellie Forbush. At long last, have these people no sense of irony left?

At the beginning of her remarks, Palin appeared to ad-lib a riff about her much-discussed wardrobe, which has the been the subject of scrutiny since Politico reported last week that the RNC spent $150,000 on clothes for Palin and her family before the Republican National Convention in September.

“Your state is filled with good, hard-working people all loving the outdoors,” she said, “and it was nice and crisp getting off the airplane and coming into the — it reminded me a lot of Alaska, so I put my warm jacket on, and it is my own jacket. It doesn't belong to anybody else."

Can you actually reach political maturity -- the kind where you hold actual elective statewide office -- in this country without having run across this at some point?

I should say this—that Pat doesn't have a mink coat. But she does have a respectable Republican cloth coat. And I always tell her that she'd look good in anything.

I know you will all join me in hoping that as the 2028 campaign draws to a close, 19-year-old Checkers Palin is sweating the midterm for J2100, not shipping out for his first tour in IranIraq.
