If Palin is truly Obama’s equal in this race, then I’d love to see her talk to the progressive equivalent of Bill O’Reilly. Maybe Keith Olberman or Rachel Maddow.

She’s being sent back to Alaska to raise some funds for the campaign and as of right now, she has yet to be scheduled for any kind of substantive interviews or press conferences.
