Sarah Palin needs thicker skin

You know what? I've had it up to here (visualize my hand hoisted over my head) with Mama Grizzly's gripes against the media. Does the press get it right every time? No. Can media hounds be unfair? Absolutely. But Sarah Palin's latest harangue on Facebook after she got pummeled for saying the U.S. needs to stand with "our North Korean allies" shows that the turkey skin I gobbled up Thursday night is thicker than the half-term governor's. You can read Palin's characteristically sarcastic and dismissive lash-out here. But she can't possibly survive a run for president (which I'm certain she won't do) wearing her heart and all of her paranoias on her sleeve. People already think she's not fit for the Oval Office. Such petty rhetorical tantrums are more befitting a pampered star than a president.
