    From the "You can't even make this **** up" department.

    She has a knack for quitting things before they're complete. A term as governor, cross-country bus tour, and a rational thought. The good news is if she somehow gets elected as president, she'll quit halfway through that too.

    So, do I have to cancel my trip in which I follow her around, not getting autographs but instead staring awkwardly from a distance?

    I was looking forward to it.

    As you said, just a bunch of grifters. She is purely a media creation. Jon Stewart hit the nail on the head in his FOX interview, our media is all about laziness and sensationalism. Odd, the Palin family shares the same traits.

    Sean, I'm happy that you are out of the closet, but this Magenta fetish has to go.

    Please, I'm begging you.

    Palin's team seems to have settled on a strategy of 1) limiting public appearances and 2) announcing her candidacy as late as possible. Meanwhile, they maintain her high media profile through more controlled appearances on TV, such as through Fox News and Sarah Palin's Alaska. This maximizes her public presence while minimizing the need to talk substantive politics in a venue (such as a debate or non-Fox interview) where gaffes are more likely.

    Not even on the same continent, annoying-wise.

    I think "Simon says" when I see it, and smile. :D

    And the Duff beer reference doesn't hurt either.

    Perhaps it was a trial run? she really had no chance at all for president. Ron Paul has the best ideas from this bought off group ! Go Ron go!

    According to Sarah Palin's Twitter (which I DO follow) she's not canceling her bus tour.

    She's not running. She never was. She's just marketing her brand. I think we're seeing the end days for her. Michelle Bachmann is the new Queen of *******e.



    How convenient that she retreats to Alaska just as Bristol's book started leaking. Seems Bristol is as good as her 'maw as rewriting history.

    We are in dire need of a commemorative t-shirt, for this 'rock-like' 1/2 tour.

    Someone must be up to this task? ;)

    I'm not so sure. But certainly the wise move for her would be to stick with hawking ghostwritten books about her views and Fox News punditry.

    The point of it is she wants attention.

    Pelosi isn't *******e. She's too liberal for my liking but you got to give her props, she was an effective Speaker. She got stuff passed. What has Boehner passed, other than gas?

    Maybe Palin's bus tour ended because they thought there was only 25 states.

    Michele Bachman said the census would lead to concentration camps. You can't get much more *******e than that.
