Will Sarah Palin's upgraded endorsement of Republican senate candidate Joe Miller revive his sagging campaign?
These two intriguing questions, coming from opposite corners of the country, come amid uncertain polling and TV-ad blitzes marking the end of the 2010 mid-term election. Visually, they are represented in these two pictures, both from today's New York Times:

In this picture, Palin lays on some skin in person, another piece of political theater meant for the cameras only.
While the images--or the events the images document--may be disingenuous, they both represent endgame moments in a fractured, unpredictable political season. We can simply view them as such.
