She knows how to project cheeriness and peppiness and goshdarnit schtick. And all these have a place in the market and even in national discourse ..."Whatever else Palin is, she is not authentic. Her flimsy record of public service has been festooned with so many lies and delusions and fantasies on her part it beggars belief. Her book is self-evidently the product of a dangerously delusional fanatic. She poses as a 'real American' from the heartland, yet she has done everything in her power to escape that heartland and find refuge in celebrity.
"If anyone is phony in American culture, it is Palin. And those who profit off her."
