Awwww, little Piper looks cute, but I'm at a loss to explain the peculiar sack Sarah's thrown over herself. It certainly seems clear that the Palins didn't retain any members of their McCain campaign styling squad. I think that's kind of sad. Sarah certainly needs guidance! Pictures like this are a useful reminder of just how buffed and polished she was during those brief, magical months when she was a noteworthy political figure.
"Some days, politics makes me roll my eyes and say 'I don't know if politics are in my future'," Palin said yesterday. No, Sarah, no! You must forge on! Bill Kristol commands it!
