Skip to comments.Is Sarah Palin Getting Trumped?
Posted on 04/20/2011 1:29:38 PM PDT by PSYCHO-FREEP
According to the latest polls, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palins political popularity trajectory is heading south. It was inevitable given our 24/7 fame-obsessed culture which feeds on new personalities and controversy to fuel the celebrity media machine.
Once Sarah Palin resigned from her office as Alaska governor, she left that respected higher platform reserved for our elected leaders and crossed over into celebrity jungle.
There, she willingly subjected herself to the unforgiving forces of media pop culture, where the masses are easily bored. And now, without a new hit show, movie, book, clothing line, charity cause, or fragrance, Palin is vying for the same celebrity space as Lady Gaga and Charlie Sheen. And worse for her, according to the Washington Post, Palin rarely seems to break through into the national dialogue.
Since her successful 2009 launch into the media pop culture, Palins brand has remained essentially the same and her fan base has not widened. Now after two years in the celebrity maelstrom, as her star is starting to flicker, she must do what all celebrities need do to stay on top: re-invent herself. Otherwise, Sarah Palin appears destined for a twirl on Dancing with the Stars during the 2013 season.
There is no doubt that in these past two years former Palin has had a good run. Consider her list of accomplishments: Fox News contributor, best-selling author, a reality TV show, success as a political fundraiser, champion of conservative causes, Tea Party leader, a bold critic of President Obama, a master of social media, and a kingmaker in the 2010 midterm elections while the question of will she or wont she run for president swirled around her like an Iowa tornado.
But the question remains: is Sarah Palins expiration date about up?

Conservative vs. Attention Whore
There are millions of us just waiting for the "go" signal from her.
Anyone who actually believes Trump cares about Obama’s BC is somewhat dim. Is there any proof he hired a single investigator?
What ever Trump is doing, it seems to be working. The article points out some of the reasons why.
ROLF at the funny headline.
If Trump says he hired an investigator, you can bank on it.
Chihuahua Romney - Self-Declared "King of Tea-Party":
My lawyers say Obama was born in the United States,
and that Obama doesnt need a Birth Certificate (like me!!!!!), and that
all citizenship tests have been passed by Obama.".
Take the time to actually read the whole article. It is not as negative as you claim. It’s actually quite objective.
But then that requires an effort and a look at all the facts and issues, which goes against your one track agenda.
Why is that? The guy has been a proven liar on many occasions. Should we bank on Obama’s word too?
No. For one thing, Todd would kill him. For another thing, Melania would help Todd.
But seriously, if you like Sarah Palin, Donald Trump simply isn’t a realistic substitute. And if you think Sarah Palin is an unserious money and attention whore, and you think the answer to that is to nominate Donald Trump, you’re down the rabbit hole and hallucinating.
Romney is not doing well at all. He is slipping quite fast now that Trump is making such an impact on the race. I’m all for it. I never have liked Romney and always saw him as a cheap used car salesman.
Another Romney-bot is heard from.
To Hades with him, his template for Obamacare, and his magic underwear.
Care to post some facts to back your claim?
If, by working, you mean making the media rejoice, yes it is. Plus, they think the GOP nominee might be someone who has never understood a conservative position, let alone held one. He is a man who made his living looting the taxpayers.
