Sharpies and Babies

Although at least a week behind in the “why’d she do it?” media-stakes, this NYT image — Monday’s front pager — goes some way in making up for it. The image, taken five days after her resignation announcement, shows Sarah P. sharing a laugh with a Mom as she autographs the woman’s contorting baby.

So the question is, how much is the photo a non-verbal poke at the contortions Palin has wrenched on her own brood?

Love the article caption, too, (below).
