Think of it as the political opposite of the John Edwards hair-fiddling tape: here is Palin, a global superstar at this point, doing the makeup of a minor Glenn Beck guest and proffering her studio to help her pals out– the show must go on, after all. She doesn’t say a word in the clip, nor does she look like she is wearing any make-up (her hair might even be at the reasonably messy level most people’s is when they’re not on TV!). The message: Sarah is a team player.
