Norah's Nah-Nah Defense Of Obama Leather Jacket: Palin Wears One Too

How quick is Norah O'Donnell to come to Pres. Obama's defense?  When on Morning Joe today fellow O'Donnell Kelly gently ribbed PBO over his wearing of a macho, faux-military leather jacket while addressing US troops in Afghanistan yesterday, Norah immediately piped up to point out that "Sarah Palin wears a leather jacket, too."

So there!

Of course, neither O'Donnell described the gaping chasm, discussed here, between PBO's swaggering "America doesn't quit" rhetoric to the troops and his 2007 call for America to immediately quit Iraq, at which time he said "there is no military solution in Iraq and there never was."
KELLY O'DONNELL: I hope he takes the leather jacket to Capitol Hill. Apparently once you get the nuclear codes, you get fitted for the leather jacket.  He looks great in that.

NORAH O'DONNELL: Sarah Palin wears a leather jacket, too.

KELLY O'DONNELL: It must be the thing of the moment: note to self.
