Surprise?  First Two National Polls Find Palin Gains LESS Support from Women  —  NEW YORK The first national polls on John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin yesterday came out today from Rasmussen and Gallup — and contrary to what the GOP probably hoped, she scored less well with women than men.
Frank Rich / New York Times:
Obama Outwits the Bloviators  —  STOP the presses!  This election isn't about the Clintons after all.  It isn't about the Acropolis columns erected at Invesco Field.  It isn't about who is Paris Hilton and who is Hanoi Hilton.  (Though it may yet be about who is Sarah Palin.)

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
GETTING REAL ABOUT PALIN  —  I've noticed some people who should know better claiming that bringing up Gov. Palin's troopergate scandal is tantamount to making a victim of or defending her slimeball ex-brother-in-law who allegedly once used a taser on his stepson.  —  That's awfully foolish.
