Have you heard? Right-wing albatross and self-caricature Sarah Palin's in town!
"One of the leading female executives in the country, the governor of Alaska," says Kirk in archival footage...then the video transitions to Palin's oft-mocked comment about being able to see Russia from the Last Frontier state.
The video also mentions Kirk seeking Palin's endorsement and working to repeal the health care reform bill -- before showing Palin arguing for the same thing.
Giannoulias has been hammering the Kirk/Palin connection all week. But like Giannoulias nagging Kirk about Sotomayor, the argument seems a bit dated. Once Kirk said he wasn't going to Palin's event today, he weakened Giannoulias' case against him.
Even so, Giannoulias will surely reiterate the Kirk-Palin connection each time Palin's in the news this summer. Good luck with that.
