Article about Sarah Palin in VANITY FAIR

It tells all about her.  The author was predisposed to like Sarah Palin and wanted to write a positive article about her -- but, as he spoke to people in Alaska and others who know her, a picture of this woman emerged that was very different from the image he first had of her.  God help us if Sarah Barracuda ever becomes President.  Read the article at:

The author of the blistering Vanity Fair profile on Sarah Palin says he wanted to write a positive piece, but was shocked by what he learned as he researched his story.

"The worst stuff isn't even in there," Michael Joseph Gross said on "Morning Joe" Thursday. "I couldn't believe these stories either when I first heard them, and I started this story with a prejudice in her favor. I have a lot in common with this woman. I'm a small-town person, I'm a Christian, I think that a lot of her criticisms of the media actually have something to them. And I think she got a bum ride, but everybody close to her tells the same story."

In the profile, Gross paints Palin as an abusive, retaliatory figure with an extreme ability to lie.

"This is a person for whom there is no topic too small to lie about," he said. "She lies about everything."
