Last held public office: Governor of Alaska, 2006-2009
No one commands the adoration or loyalty of John Q. Republican quite like Sarah Palin. Master of folksy quips and pitch perfect populism, the former vice presidential candidate has fabulous base appeal. Her personal story of carrying to term a Down's child gives her unquestionable credibility with anti-abortion activists. After a gig with Fox News, two books, a TLC reality show and two years of swarming attention from the national press corps, the Palin brand is as potent as it is ubiquitous.
One of the characteristics that make Palin so popular with the Republican base is her unshakable one-against-the-world mentality. In Palin's eyes, the "Lamestream Media," jealous rivals and good old boy establishment are working tirelessly to undo her. It's a compelling narrative at a Tea Party rally, but it hasn't much helped her standing elsewhere....

Still “Rent Free” in their heads.

Interesting factoid to use in the second sentence. I would not be surprised that this fact alone is the reason why so many people hate Sarah Palin. Writers tend to lead with what they think is critical in their own minds, and placing the birth of Trig so prominently tells me that it is a significant factor in Palin hatred.
I sure would like to see what each candidate claims as their most outstanding achievement. For instance - what is Sarah’s?
Resistance is futile.
Prepare to be liberated.
I’d bet she’d say cleaning up the corruption in Alaska and getting more $$ from the energy companies for Alaska’s natural reources. But I’m not her spokesman.
That’s a good shot. I just wonder what all of the contenders would claim. It would be interesting and telling.
Soetoro-Dunhams would be getting to the white house without being a natural born citizen!
Gettin McCain re-elected over a solid conservative candidate and scuttling any chance we’d have conservative Chcuk Devore face off against the numbskull Boxer.
Never anything about her accomplishments as governor. They only mention her resignation and the birth of Trig. They pretend she didn’t balance budgets, cut budgets, expand state revenues without raising taxes, plan what will be the nation’s largest pipeline project (unless the Progressives kill it), and put billions in the state’s rainy day fund.
Maybe they’ll get around to it after the 2012 election.
Not a chance! They only acknowledge good done by Republicans after they are dead.
Time magazine....Feifei Sun, oh man, this is the good stuff. A forgotten rag and a columnist no one has heard of nor cares about....... LOL! Hey Feifei, get back to us, when you have some credentials.....
Getting married to Todd.
Have you been in a cave since 2009, FRiend? We've been over and over this subject 1,000 times.
Ignoring Herman Cain.
Nope, because the President of the United States has the power of the Attorney General and a whole slew of legal barriers to prevent ankle-biting activist/ operatives from financially-bankrupting the C-in-C or even forcing the Administration to divert time and effort from State business towards legal affairs.
How do you quite?
