It ain't so, MoDo: Palin never changed

Fecklessly following up an apparent free association about how how journalists "drive the people we write about crazy", Maureen Dowd imagines a prelapsarian Sarah Palin, "serene" and"tough"... "before she became unhinged by fame and her fixation with her reviews":

The same McCain advisers who later turned against Palin were impressed with her at first, when she earned adjectives like unruffled, self-confident, tough-minded and self-assured.

From Bill Ayers to Reverend Wright, “Sarahcuda” was ready to bite, telling rallies, “The heels are on, the gloves are off.”

But by the end, after Tina Fey, Katie Couric and the shopping spree, Palin had lost confidence. She became erratic.

MoDo is maxed out on movies mythologizing magical transformations. From her first appearance on the public stage in Wasilla in the early 90s, Palin has always been a paranoid, vindictive, backstabbing, demagogic, ignorant meglomaniac.

P.S. "the gloves are off" is a dog whistle to torture enthusiasts.
