NBC New York, obligingly feeding the beast that is Sarah Palin’s gaping narcissistic maw (and bus tour) runs an article and story about Sarah’s magically transformative neckwear. Outside of New York, it’s a chunky cross; in New York, it’s back to the Star of David (Jews!).
Notes NBC/NY’s Roseanne Colletti:
NBC New York asked Palin about the significance just as she boarded her bus outside Fox Newschannel to head off to Boston.
“Today is the 44th anniversary of Jerusalem being reunited,” she said. “We want to call attention to that.”
The pendant is in every photo she took with fans and supporters and can be seen in every sound-bite captured by television crews.
Some analysts wondered if the possible Republican candidate for president was actually wearing the necklace to play to the hometown audience as she hop-scotched around New York on her national bus tour.
Gee, do ya think? The Boston Phoenix’s David Bernstein has been noting humorously on Facebook since the bus tour started how Palin’s necklace has been changing with each new area in which she steps foot.
We ought not be surprised that a politician tailors her messages and appearance to her audiences, but the difference is that folksy, aw-shucks Palin tries to portray herself as being above such concerns.
