Tailin’ Palin

Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had barely ended her farewell speech on Sunday (Executive summary: I’m more powerful now that I’m not governor of the least populous but largest state in the Union) when liberal pill-and-a-pest organization MoveOn.org had a TV spot whacking Palin up and running on nationwide cable (hat tip to ABC News’s daily digest, The Note).

Clearly, as Sarah Palin pursues her dream of . . . whatever,  her greatest strength will be her opponents’  weakness – that is, the left’s inability to just ignore Palin.

Solution: Give her a good leaving alone, and Palin will find herself, well, alone.

    Wrong. If the left leaves Palin alone, she’ll still find plenty of time on Fox and even on less fringe outlets like CNN. Witness the birthers – the left left them alone, but CNN still finds time to spread their inanity (or did I leave out an “s”?).

    Agreed. I’m also confused by everyone’s (right, left, center, whatever) fascination with her. Is it really just because she’s pretty and easy to mock/satire? She hasn’t done much, and has now rather undone what she was – Alaska governor. Her twitter handle is AKGovSarahPalin – that gonna change now? :)

    Heck, I suppose I’d call myself conservative and Republican, and I also want her to either lay low and go away or jump in, come clean, be clear, and do it up right. She ran for VP, lost, and returned to Alaska to serve as governor. Fine. Feud with Letterman – OK – but taken too far. And now the governor thing hasn’t even played out quietly, but ended oddly – strange and confusing. Get in or get out – decide and run with it. Maybe she and the likes of Brett Favre, Michael Jordan, and maybe even Lance Armstrong can discuss the challenge of making the tough decision to be in or out of your field/game of choice, and how making and remaking that decision, and the attendant publicity and media obsession can be irritating and do more harm than good. I’ve never subscribed to the idea that bad/any publicity is good publicity.
