Sarah Paley, wife of Nebraska Senate candidate Bob Kerrey, may have caused some headaches for his campaign with an essay she penned for Vogue's July issue the Reliable Source points out. In the magazine piece, Paley mentions "misgivings" about her husband's run and jokes about feeling out of place in Nebraska. The World Herald reports, “Her latest piece has been making the rounds in Nebraska political circles, going from inbox to inbox. Some Republican bloggers and others, including one letter writer to The World-Herald, have been critical of the article, calling it condescending. Kerrey pointed out that his wife is a "comedian" (she used to write for "Saturday Night Live"), and said she was aiming to be funny, not offensive.” More from The Washington Post’s Reliable Source.
