Profiles In Creepiness

13-48sept-8coversmall.jpgWho in their right mind at the Weekly Standard thought it was a good idea to have cover art of a Republican elephant standard bearer staring at the ass of the GOP’s putative Vice Presidential candidate?

Would the elephant have been staring at Joe Lieberman’s ass had he been picked like McCain reportedly wanted before he got the evangelical veto? Or does Sarah Palin only get this cover art treatment because she’s a girl? Careless, sexist, or just plain stupid? I can’t decide.

Creepy or not — what do you think?
