The Vanity Fair story is probably gonna be bigger then the Letterman thingy, I’m guessing. I liked this part (H/T-Mudflats):

But the part that really surprised me, and the thing that Alaska bloggers and others routinely discuss that hasn’t been discussed much out in the open is Meghan Stapleton, the spokesperson for SarahPAC.

But just months into its existence the pac‘s chief fund-raiser, Becki Donatelli, a veteran of Republican campaigns, suddenly quit. One person familiar with the situation told me that Donatelli could not stand dealing with Palin’s political spokeswoman in Alaska, Meghan Stapleton, who has drawn withering fire from Palin friends and critics alike for being an ineffective adviser.

I like to think of Stapleton, (who has earned the monikers “Stapletongue,” “Staplegun,” and “Meg the Mouth”) as a guest at a picnic who sees an insect on the food table, and without hesitating, lets off a Banshee scream and pounds the thing into oblivion with an overhead swing of a sledgehammer.  Guests may or may not realize later, as they all pitch in to clean up the mess,  that it was a butterfly.
