FIRST LOOK -- Forthcoming Newsweek cover, “Saint Sarah: What Palin’s Appeal to Conservative Christian Women Says about Feminism and the Future of the Religious Right,” by Lisa Miller: “Palin has been antagonizing women on the left of late by describing herself as a ‘feminist,’ a word she uses to mean the righteous, mama-bear anger that wells up when one of her children is attacked in the press or her values brought into question. But while leftist critics continue to shred Palin as a cynical, shallow, ill-informed opportunist, … Palin is now playing to her strengths. Even if she never again seeks elected office, her pro-woman rallying cry, articulated in the evangelical vernacular, together with the potent pro-life example of her own family, puts Palin in a position to reshape and reinvigorate the religious right, one of the most powerful forces in American politics. The Christian right is now poised to become a women's movement -- and Sarah Palin its earthy Jerry Falwell.” Cover

Saint Sarah... has an interesting ring to it.
