Hiding Sarah Palin:
Here's a suggestion from Marc Armbinder
Does Palin Need to Give Interviews?

What harm would befall the McCain campaign if Palin sat for one major television interivew with, say, a gentle but probing Diane Sawyer... and then an interview with her local paper in Alaska... and then gave no press avails and held no press conferences. The media would complain a lot. Would people care?
This morning on the Don Imus show, historian Michael Beschloss suggested something similar, that Palin should be interviewed on Fox News Channel and then stay away from any other press encounters.
Boy is that wishful thinking! The muzzle has just come off the attack dog and you're wondering if they're going to put it back on?
For the next two months, John McCain is going to make the case for electing John McCain, and Sarah Palin is going to make the case against electing Barack Obama.
To switch metaphors, did Barack Obama just bring a Joe Biden knife to a Sarah Palin gunfight?
I'd watch Palin with a gentle but probing Diane Sawyer. Yowza! (If Jon Stewart can do it...!)
