Skip to comments.Why Sarah Palin Needs A Branding Makeover (Unless Her PBI, Personal Branding Idea, Is Kook)
Posted on 08/02/2014 9:06:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
When Sarah Palin stormed onto the scene in 2008, there was no denying the power of her brand. Whether you loved her or hated her, whether you thought she was the future or rolled your eyes at her moose hunting and seeing Russia from her house, you knew what she stood for, and you had some begrudging respect for her positioning as a hockey mom who didnt believe in wasting a civic nickel. (You gotta remember the stuff on pigs and pork?)
The previously unknown Alaska governor quickly became a new breed of working mother. A strong conservative woman. An unlikely but believable candidate to shatter the glass ceiling. A rallying force for the Tea Party and other right-wingers. A maverick, a rebel, a politician unafraid of speaking her mindand who cared if it was uninformed or inappropriate?
With John McCain (who is so not a kook that I cant understand how his brand ever got commingled with Her Kookiness, because brands are judged by the company they keep), she tried her best to give Obama a run for his money and earn that erstwhile place a heartbeat away from the famous 3 a.m. phone call. When that didnt work out, she traded politics for much-more-lucrative punditry and remained a force that shaped the American conversation, for better or worse....

Any author that perpetuates the 'Russia from her house' BS should be ignored.
I would happily buy Ms. Salzman dinner if she could cite for me in what speech or conversation Sarah Palin said “she could see Russia from her house.” If, OTOH, Tina Fey is proven to be the person who said that then Ms. Salzman should eat my shorts.
These people hate Palin so much they just can’t stop talking about her.
Marian is CLEARLY a kook.
I wouldn’t normally cite Snopes here, but they agree Sarah Palin never said that, it was indeed Tina Fey. And they have both videos. http://www.snopes.com/politics/palin/russia.asp
“Marian Salzman is an American advertising and public relations executive. She is CEO of Havas PR North America and chairs the Global Collective, the organizing collaborative of all of the PR assets of Havas. She rejoined Euro RSCG in August 2009, having previously worked for the holding company as executive vice president, chief strategic officer, from January 2001 to October 2004.”
ummmm no thanks
This author drips stinky stuff from her ears having her head recently emerge from her....I say no more, you get the picture.
What’s with comments at Forbes? I can’t get in to read them?????

Seriously??? Mccain was running for pres not Sarah Palin but this writer attacks Palin as tho she was running Mccain’s campaign.
Geez these Palin haters are delusional.
This person is a big McCain fan apparently too.
John McCain left Kookville a long time ago and is now firmly entrenched in Crazy Old Man territory.
Yeppers, never-mind the Alinsky tactics that drove her from office, giving her the only option to resign and save her state and family from ruin.
LISTEN TO OUR TALKING POINTS, DAMNIT!
Same cr%p. Different day. She has been right many times more than she has been wrong. These scared and arrogant sob’s cannot bring themselves to the level of the average American. If she does choose to launch a campaign and the American people choose notto embrace her, it is America’s loss. She is the only one telling like it is and is not afraid of the ramifications. Something this author does not have the ability to do, and knows it.
I say again. Palin lives rent free in tiny lefty pea brains.
To sum it up the 1 percenters say she’s basically irrelevant and risks become completely irrelevant if she doesn’t re-invent herself.
She re-invents herself every time she openers her mouth and lets the criminals in the District of Criminals have it.
The Left really stirred up a hornet's nest by driving her out of office and now they're paying the price.
(Interesting that it’s the only civilizational dividing line which classical music jumped, that is, the Russians produce great literate art music, the Chinese, Japanese, Turks & Hindus don’t produce any significantly vital, autochthonous literate art music ("classical") of their own. Generally, “Material artifacts jump civilizational dividing lines; cultural artifacts don’t.”)
Russia is a country that still believes that it has a future, even in the midst of killing itself off with vodka and 8 abortions per woman. Still believing in itself, it knows enough to make its enemies fear it.
Palin’s waterboarding remark is for the minority of Americans who still believe that we have a future.
I can’t sanction such a view. But I understand that it’s red blooded.
What price is the left paying?
