Skip to comments.Why is Sarah Palin Still on the Nation's Stage? (Here's a new one)

Why is Sarah Palin still considered relevant in the national discourse?
It is said that at times certain celebrities are said to be famous for being famous. Is Palin relevant simply because she is relevant?
On Monday night, Palin appeared on the Sean Hannity show on Fox. She discussed the reaction of her critics, the media and the county at large to her statements following the shooting of Ariz. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which included the unfortunate choice of the term "blood libel".
As Palin spoke, 2.36 million people watched, and the show comfortably outdrew the ratings for the debut of Pier Morgans Tonight on CNN, which was shown at the same time. During the broadcast, Palin and Hannity were, for a period of time, the number one tweeted term in the world.
The question, again, however, is "why?" What makes Sarah Palin relevant?
Regardless of her political persuasion, Palin has demonstrated very little executive success. From 1996 through 2002, Palin was the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, with a population of approximately 10,000 people.
Palin was elected governor of Alaska in 2005 and governing the state in 2006. In 2008 John McCain, Republican candidate for president, chose her (some would say inexplicably) as his running mate.....

The author of this piece is a moron.
This guy’s little bio describes him as a “moderate” but he smells like a Moonbat to me.
She’s only relevant because the media makes her relevant and the only reason they make her relevant only because they see her as the #1 target.........they don’t do it because she is stupid and easy to mock and make fun at but because she isn’t a easy target like an establishment type who collapse everytime
Why is this any of Hart’s business? He needs to continue kissing his “messiah’s” feet. Sarah Palin can take care of herself on or off the stage. Stuff it Ronnie!
Boy is this guy a little late to the game or what? This foaming at the mouth anger from the left is a partial result of them not taking her seriously all this time, mocking her, deriding her. Meanwhile, she’s become a political power station.
He can thank MSNBC for Sarah’s popularity. Every time they bash her, her ratings go through the roof.
Too bad about Piers Morgan. His show is going to be a big flop.
He was accurate on some of it and not so accurate on other parts. Hard to discern because it was so poorly written.
These nitwits are OBSESSED with her and then write essays asking why is she always being talked about??
They are just NUTS.
The glaring stupidity of the PDS crowd is mind boggling. They shout Sarah’s name all over the airwaves, completely unprovoked, out of nowhere, and then wonder why she is still on the national stage. The world has not seen such idiots in all of history.
Sean just asked Dr. Laura why the left hates Sarah... Her answer: She has balls.
I believe that is in the upper range of what some would think!
Do I write because I write?
He could have bought some good drugs with the money he wasted on that J-School thingy!
Can’t live with her, can’t live without her.
There’s a consistance message. /sarc
Exactly, they call her out on the carpet and then ask why is she out on the carpet!!! It is about as retarded as you can get.
Not exactly Descartes Cogito ergo sum is it. More like, I know how to write therefore I do. No thought needed I guess.
How do you show up at WaPo or Media Matters or the State Department if you can't produce a hit piece you wrote against Palin??? You can't. It's mandated by the left. So everyone of these twit commie assholes has to write his or her 'take' on Palin. Since there are literally millions of these dweebs out there the hit pieces will continue to come,...only they will get more angry as each 'writer' attempts to out do their communist brethren.
So small towns don't count as real?
Because she’s a girl who could whip their butts.
maybe Palin will look to Bush’s climb as to the White House as her inspiration and template. .......................................... Putz, not Bush, Reagan!! They are even afraid to mention his name. Same ole crap rehashed. Sounds like they are running out of material. When will they learn, its what she stands for, and achieved on her own, without the usual political machinery, that make the people love her. The Republicans (RINOs) can’t win without her and they know it by now.
They don’t want to ask us who love her. Our answers would not fit in with their hate pattern.
Liberals are scared with reason...
I think early on when they attacked her, they expected her to shut up and fold....when she didn’t but came back at them, it scared them sh**less..they made her by trying to destroy her...ironic.
As opposed to [voting present] obozo?? Give me a break.
