Maggie and Emily write this morning on the new role Sarah Palin has carved out for herself in 2012 politics, picking the races she gets involved in more carefully and seeking out opportunities where she can have (or appear to have) disproportionate impact:
"This year, Palin has become almost irrelevant in the context of the presidential race she once had a chance to dominate, and is seen more than ever as a sideshow by the Republican establishment. But after seeing her celebrity peak last year, Palin has settled into a role as something of a strong Triple-A political ballplayer, picking well on down-ballot races and earning credit as she goes.
If she jumps into the right streams, the ex-veep nominees backers will cite her endorsements as fresh evidence of her clout even if shes being carried by the tide. Yet her durability among the grassroots of the party, even with the tea-party movement diffusing in 2012, is clear.
There is a vacuum on the right now, and at some point thats an opportunity for someone, and it wont be resolved in this summer or this fall, said Republican strategist Alex Castellanos. Sarah Palin has as much a claim to that as anyone right now

These idiots don’t understand the situation.
This election is all about down ballot battles.
The presidency is lost regardless of the outcome.
Politico...leftist crap who cares????
The minors hold the future.
And you remain in the nose bleeds.
Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman are major league, you betcha! LOL
Alex Haber Who?
Tell that to Dick Lugar....
He was on the road to win until Sarah endorsed Mourdock.
And Tell Sylvester Reyes
Tell Artur Davis
How long have the Leftists been saying she is an irrelevant has-been?
How long have the Leftists been saying she is an irrelevant has-been?...................................... As long as she has been in their heads. Looks like she’ll still be around.
You’ll have to do the search, but I can’t remember a single instance when The Politico wrote an objective word about Sarah Palin. If she is so irrelevant, why do they have to write piece after piece trying to convince us of that?
She put her family first.
If God wants her to run in the future, it will happen.
Personally, I think it looks more like the GOP establishment in its wisdom called the sideshow freaks up to the Show and sent Palin to the minors. But that’s just me.
two assholes who know less than nothing
Milt RomneyCARE is a backstabber with not a single conservative bone in his body.
The primaries are over and Mitt is it—another sorryass RINO but there you go—it's down to him or the Marxist.
You can stop campaigning for Obama now;)
I guess the GOP-E has never heard of “seed corn.”
Not only do they not understand that , they do not understand the difference between being a scout for a major league team and being a player on a minor league farm club...jeesh
