HOT or NOT: The Week-In-Review

HOT: Palin Wears Democratic-Themed Scarf. VP Candidate Sarah Palin raised eyebrows this week when she was spotted sporting a donkey- themed scarf. She was photographed in Reno on Tuesday wearing a scarf with donkeys and the words ‘Yes’ and ‘Vote.’ There's just so much I could say about this one I don't even know where to start.

NOT: Naming Your Child “Zamboni.” In an interview with People Magazine, Palin said that if she had a sixth child, they have already picked the name for a boy – Zamboni. I already pity this poor hypothetical child.

HOT: Former Bush Press Secretary Backs Obama. So Scott McClellan recently announced that he would vote for Barack Obama on CNN’s new show with D.L. Hughley. He described Senator Obama as the candidate “who has the best chance of changing the way Washington works and getting things done." I wonder if Rush Limbaugh will say that he’s only supporting Barack because he’s black.

NOT: Louis Vuitton for Your Kids. Amongst the $150,000 clothes and accessories purchased for Sarah Palin and her family, is a $790 Louis Vuitton Canvas bag for her 7-year-old daughter, Piper Palin. I can't blame her though because she understands that people are voting based on "pocketbook" issues. Update: Piper Palin's Louis Vuitton Purse is FAKE!

HOT: The New York Times Endorses Barack Obama. And the newspaper endorsements keep rolling in for Barack Obama. The NYT described their decision as an easy one, saying that Senator Barack Obama “has proved that he is the right choice to be the 44th president of the United States.”

NOT: Distinguishing between Northern Virginia and “Real Virginia.” McCain senior adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer recently suggested that McCain would win Virginia because he is doing better in the southern part of the state or, as she called it, “real Virginia.” I wasn’t aware that I was living in an imaginary place for three years.

HOT: Michele Bachmann's Tightening Race. After Michele Bachmann’s comments accusing the House leadership of being “un-American,” donations increased for her opponent, Elwyn Tinkleberg. What was considered to be a cake walk is now a close race to keep her congressional seat in Minnesota’s 6th District. Love it.
