This post from the NYT Caucus blog raises two urgent questions, 1) WTF is “aggressively directional men’s wear, 2) What did the Palins’ RNC-endowed fashion splurges actually buy?

In his first TV interview after picking his running mate, John McCain famously described Sarah Palin as his “partner and soulmate,” but now at least one interviewer is picking up a less friendly vibe from the Republican ticket. Sam Stein reports:
