The campaign has taken over her life, including buying her clothes and combing her hair. And this is the same lady who didn't move her family into the Governor's Mansion, nor use an official driver.
The staff, a lot tougher than the "Yes, Minister" one provided everything, and a lot of that everything is setting Palin up for disaster. Her outfits each now cost enough to feed a family for a month. Her hairdresser gets more money than you'd like to imagine.
The "coaches" have made her wary and lose that spontaneity. All this is costing even more in support from the voters.
If McCain loses, she can be blamed. Is that what it's all about?
