Another Sunday Without Sarah

Tomorrow morning's political talk shows will offer interviews with a wide range of Republicans, including such women as Gov. Janet Napolitano of Arizona, Sen. Kay Baily-Hutchison of Texas, McCain advisors Carleton Fiorina and Nancy Pftotenhauer as well as former Massachusetts Acting Gov. Jane Swift.

Those interested in the politics of Alaska will hear from
Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell and former Democratic Gov. Tony Knowles, who lost the 2006 election to someone who will be unavailable to discuss politics before facing a Fox News grilling on Tuesday by Sean Hannity.

With less than two months to go before Election Day, voters may be reminded of the dramaturgy of such classic thrillers as "Laura" and "The Third Man," in which the lead character fails to appear until halfway through the movie, only after the others actors have been endlessly babbling away about her/him without revealing anything significant.

Gov. Janet Napolitano of New Mexico? Did Bill and I miss something?

I think Palin's delayed entrance might even go beyond the Laura mark. We might be heading for The Big Chill territory, in which the most critically important character, Alex, never appears in the movie at all. (Alex had been played by the then-unknown Kevin Costner, but all his scenes had been deleted.)
