Does Biden "Pale In" Comparison?

Ann Althouse has been writing a lot about Palin.  She's been working on word play about her, too.  For instance, when the attacks seemed to get kind of crazy, she called it "Palinsanity."

But the funniest one is where she started in about palindromes.  A palindrome is a word or phrase that is spelled the same forward and backward.  Spaces and punctuation marks are typically disregarded.  One of the famous palindromes is contained in a riddle:

Q) What did the first man say when he met the first woman?

A) Madam, I'm Adam.

Althouse came up with one for Palin's opponents: "Harass Sarah."

I saw Palin speak tonight.  She didn't look harassed.  She looked like she was having fun, and she looked like she was stirring the audience very effectively, particularly the women.  Time will tell, but tonight she reminded me of Reagan for some reason.

I suspect her opponents will fail in
marginalizing Palin.
