The comment from the Republican media type at the end of this article is encouraging:
David All, a Republican new media consultant, notes that the uninterrupted attention offers Palin an unprecedented political opportunity even if a good portion of the curiosity comes from her detractors.
Theres a heckuva lot of wind out there for Sarah Palin. Now she has to put up a sail to catch it, he said. She can use that Internet bully pulpit to help change the hearts and minds of folks. She has a unique opportunity to build up something massive.
It's up to her to seize the opportunity.
I think the real news here is that people still use lycos. Get with the times people!
Bush wins with 51%, I recall reading “narrowly wins”.
Obama wins with 52%, it’s a “sweeping defeat”.
Yeah, no bias interjected here folks.
Why in the world are you posting stuff from Politico?? Their credibility (and direction of bias) is no better than the NYT. Screeching liberal propaganda, pure and simple.
I'm guessing Kathy doesn't understand the hotness factor.
Kathy has to be a liberal... else she'd understand why people love Palin.
Did the Palin daughter ever marry the young man? I read that she was really resisting her mother’s request.
It is also possible that Palin allowed McPain to make her into another Quayle, as Quayle allowed the Bushes to do to him. She, like Quayle, will be hence unelectable in the future. Quayle even left IN as well as politics.
i have a county by county map here I printed from a FR post with each county colored red or blue. It reveals clearly that mostly the populous urban centers were in red while most of the country red. Sure they did win, but certainly not in a “sweeping” fashion.It is a mostly red country area-wise, but we don't vote by county.
Sarah has earned the loyalty of millions of Americans. The fervor with which the left scorns her, proves what a threat she is to them. Sarah Palin is a fearless conservative warrior. As a conservative woman, I adopted the refrain of “I am Sarah Palin.” She is the only bright light that shined in this dismal election. She does have a big political future ahead of her. She was mobbed everywhere she gave an election speech. She has a huge grass roots following. The liars and spinners in the MSM can’t stop her, she speaks directly to the people, like Ronald Reagan did.

Thank goodness this isn't a Walmart in Long Island.
it was not a sweeping defeat....considering the zero had over $600,000,000 in his campaign alone, not to mention all the pacs etc....to McCains somewhat piddling amt...and considering that zero was running for two years....and considering that not one single hard question was ever asked of him.....<P “sweeping defeat”?...hardly...zero won by a little more than the hated Bush......and if McCain had run a brigher campaign instead of one he didn’t think he could win , we would be saying hello Ms Vice President...
