The Rundown

I'm always late during the end of the week. I come in after everything's already happened, but whatever. Goodies, galore today (technically yesterday). First up, two LOTUS posts by Sarah Palin:

Coin Controversy: It is stunning to read and hear about this “coin controversy.” At a recent speech in Milwaukee I discussed the troubling fact that we too often move God to the side in our public life, and gave as an example the shift of the words “In God We Trust” to the edge of the dollar coin.

My comments were not about this President or this Congress – this change predated them. I was merely making a point about a disturbing trend in our country, after which I moved on to discuss some encouraging trends. People who try to read more into such straightforward comments are working hard to find a controversy where there is none.

All right, rapid response stuff. Good. This is what she needs to do, just slap down this stuff as it comes out. Now, on to Oprah:
Willow, Piper, and I are in Chicago and just wanted to let you know that I had a great conversation with Oprah today. We taped the show for Monday, November 16th, and enjoyed it so much that we went way over on time. The rest will air on Oprah was very hospitable and gracious, and her audience was full of warm, energized and (no doubt) curious viewers.

I can honestly say I have never watched Oprah before in my life. This will be the first time. Here's what Oprah had to say:

Next up, a Republican candidate for Governor in Wisconsin is angling for a Palin endorsement:
[Scott] Walker sought help in his run for governor Friday in a half-hour meeting with Palin after her invitation-only Wisconsin Right to Life event....

"Sarah Palin is one of many national political figures we're reaching out to help on the campaign trail to be part of Scott's effort," Bader said.....Palin told Walker she would be focused through the end of the year on her tour promoting her upcoming book, "Going Rogue," but would begin helping candidates in January. Walker asked Palin to appear with him at a Fox Valley event to help combat expected fund-raising help the Democratic candidate would get from President Barack Obama.
We'll see how this goes. Wisconsin is always a toss-up state. It's a mixture of hippies and farmers, somehow managing to co-exist, mostly because the farmers have learned to keep their mouths shut. And then there's the college kids who are stuck somewhere in the middle. It's always a battleground, and the liberals always win just barely, but with Wisconsin on the list of states on the verge of becoming California, it might be enough to knock some common sense into people. But I'm not getting my hopes up.

And Levi promises to dish on Palin in his upcoming book. Just keep ridin' them coattails, Levi. Just keep ridin.' You know who the lowest circle of hell is reserved for, right?

And, so as not to leave a bad taste in your mouth, I bid you farewell with this:
