    Every day, buried beneath the perfection that is President Barack Obama :heart:, the media has been running near daily stories on the further misadventures of one Sarah Palin:huh: (who?)

    Anyways, I decided perhaps she hasn't quite been beaten to death enough, so here are some updates.

    Oh, and what we've all been waiting for.

    Sarah Palin Gets a TV Show!

    You know that I completely respect you Shadow, but I would hold back on calling President Obama 'perfect'. He has only been president for three days. He will make some mistakes. I believe that he will make some great decisions, but he will also make some mistakes.

    As for Sarah Palin, I would dare say that she has resigned herself to being nothing more than an attention ****e desperately trying to cling to anything that she can in a pathetic attempt to stake her claim in 2012.

    Marx, for shame, not catching sarcasm...c'mon, I even added the :heart: and acted like I didn't know who Palin was in the same sentence.

    I strike my comment about Obama's perfection on account of sarcasm. My thoughts on Palin remain the same. :cwink:

    I want her to run in 2012. If she is embarrassed bad enough she may just drop out of politics permanently.

    If she runs in 2012 (which, I believe, is inevitable due to her egomania) Romney will destroy her.

    Palin is asking for $11 million to write her memoirs. The same amount Bill Clinton asked for when writing his memoirs after leaving office.

    Considering Palin's VP Debate and SNL appearance were records, its hard to argue there is not interest in her. Any publisher would be smart to pay that.

    Also doesn't this thread actually contradict its purpose? By talking about Palin's irrelevance don't you make her relevant?

    The skits with her on SNL did break records, I just doubt that interest helps her being taken credibly in national politics. This was the train-wreck factor at work IMO. That type of fame leads to reality tv shows, not being a president.

    Besides the interest was in laughing at her

    Will Romney still have his oh so perfect hair in 2012?

    Was I making the case at all for her being President in that post? I was simply stating that her asking 11 Million dollars for her book, or someone paying 11 million dollars for her book is not unreasonable in the slightest.

    The only thing relevant about this woman was watching her being made fun of on SNL by Tina Fey. That's all she's got going for her. :o

    That and the fact she had the largest amount of people tuning in to see her which is always something and I think the exact opposite of irrelevance.

    You don't want to be boasting about the ratings when every one is laughing at you, not because of what you have to say.

    That's like Carl Lewis saying that his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner* is the most memorable

    You continue to miss the point, I don't if its on purpose or because you truly don't grasp it.

    Sarah Palin may be a joke, but being a joke doesn't make you irrelevant - being forgotten makes you irrelevant.

    You know whose irrelevant? Carol Mosley Braun. Sam Brownback. Robert Smith.

    I never said being a joke makes one irrelevant. With regard to what one has to say is another thing.

    I think shes hurting her chances at a real political future when all she seems to do is complain. If shes not careful, she can risk annoying everyone if shes this often in the news for the next four years.

    And she should have expected the attention her daughters story got.
