Check Please! Obama & Palin May Not Be Sharing That Milkshake After All:
If it seems too good to be true, maybe it is. Archie Comics gave the world a glimpse, albeit fictional, of President Obama and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin sharing a milkshake. Now, they may have traded in their matching sweater vests for boxing gloves. This week they're not sharing desserts, but rather dishing out just deserts. ...
... The issues are scheduled for release in December 2010 and January 2011, shortly after mid-term elections. The covers featuring the spirit of bipartisanship will be available alongside the new political battle variants for both the optimists and pessimists. Voters are left to wonder if that milkshake glass is half empty or half full.

Jake Tapper's "New Chief of Staff, With Alaskan Roots, Not Liked by Sarah Palin" has some background information about why Sarah Palin hates Pete Rouse, President Obama's new Chief of Staff. It's very conspirational stuff, according to Palin:
... After Rouse was mentioned as a potential replacement for Emanuel, Palin tweeted: “Alaska's Pete Rouse (@ least he claims to be ‘Alaska’)finally comes out of the shadows; Obama looks to appt him COS;strange doings in the WH.”
She added: “(Rahm's the smart one...bailing before Nov) Now, check out possible COS Pete Rouse. His background, voter reg in AK,etc. It's a small world.”
After Palin resigned her governorship, Palin adviser Meg Stapleton told TIME that attacks against the governor and her family were from the White House.
"A lot of this comes from Washington, D.C. The trail is pretty direct and pretty obvious to us," Stapleton told the magazine, alluding to The Thumpin' [The Thumpin': How Rahm Emanuel and the Democrats Learned to Be Ruthless and Ended the Republican Revolution]. "It's the Sarah Palin playbook. It's how they operate.” The magazine wrote that “Palin and her Alaska circle find evidence for their suspicions about the White House in the person of Pete Rouse, who lived in Juneau for a time before he became chief of staff to a young U.S. Senator named Barack Obama. Rouse, they note, is a friend of former Alaska state senator Kim Elton, who pushed the first ethics investigation of Palin, examining her controversial firing of the state's public-safety commissioner. Both Rouse and Elton have joined the Obama Administration.”
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told TIME that “the charge is ridiculous. Obviously there is no effort ... From my vantage point, a lot of the criticism she is getting from others seems to be generated from self-inflicted wounds."
Self-inflicted wounds, indeed.
Update: Here are twelve large photos of Bristol Palin looking very brainy, and a little like her mom in those glasses! Won't the hens be disappointed? She doesn't look pregnant.
