I'm afraid you are woefully uninformed. Sarah Palin commands media attention but she is also employed by Fox News so you will be seeing even more of her on the FNC.
Sarah is a public speaker in great demand, but she is not an elected office holder, so she doesn't vote on any issues, but her views can and do influence others and her views are entirely conservative.
This genuine movement you speak of is the grassroots efforts of people everywhere and there is no leader, but Sarah Palin was the invited keynote speaker at the Tea Party Nation's first convention. It's as simple as that.
Sarah has her own PAC and she endorses and supports candidates of her choice, including John McCain, John Kasich and Rand Paul so far this year.
See this is as easy as debating rationally but my problem is that no one can comment anything about her.I dont care about the FNC gig she has. Im talking about why is she putting herself in front of the tea party movement she not relevant in this movement no politician is because this is all walks of life protesting BOTH Parties.She should stay away from this because the MSM will be declaring soon that she is the leader of the Tea party movement leader of the tea adn it will lose any credibility.
In ne speech she is urging for new blood yet she is supporting typical self-serving,corrupt,I could-care-less-what-the people-want politicians like Mccain and Perry.
