Heiress and ultimate narrator Emily Brill on Sarah Palin: "But beyond discourse, she’s even inspired people to take risks in expression. I have one ‘boldfaced’ friend who finally started wearing an Obama pin to events after the Palin announcement, against the wishes of the conservative ’society’ family he comes from. So whatever you think of Palin, you’ve got to give her credit for engaging people and reinvigorating both sides of the spectrum." Mmm yes! And have you read Emily's presidential debate live blog?
