Sarah Palin swallows!

Too much of her own hype, that is.

What, you thought I was talking about something else?

Palin spent two months hauling Baby Trig from stage to stage, waving him around in front of audiences and TV cameras like some kind of voodoo fetish in an effort to rack up the "awww ... isn't that the cutest thing you ever did see?" vote.

She used the rest of her family in precisely the same way. Frankly, the only reason I tuned in was to see when she'd trot Bristol out with a fresh new beard courtesy of hormone injections, or have Todd try to jump a pit full of hungry crocodiles on his snowmobile in a fringed-leather red, white and blue jumpsuit (with Lee Greenwood or Hank, Jr. caterwauling in the background, of course). That's entertainment!

Now she seems to be arriving at the realization that freakshow won't carry a four-year campaign for the top slot. She needs to be taken seriously. So, David Letterman's an asshole and a picture of her with her campaign prop baby is "an iconic representation of a mother's love for a special needs child."

Feh. Buy the ticket, take the ride, lady.
