I’m not sure what is to be gained from this apparent strategy of shielding Sarah Palin from the press, except for occasional details about her family’s Oreo Overload consumption habits. It reinforces the critique of her as unprepared. It is almost certainly unnecessary, given her ability to handle press conferences and such as governor of Alaska. And even if she ends up making gaffes, it is hard to imagine that she can top Joe Biden in sheer buffoonery. This must be another area where Andrew Cuomo is advising the campaign.
