Skip to comments.Has Palin jumped the shark? Some think Palin's redefining political branding (Not negative!)

The Sportsman Channel's promo for Sarah Palin's new reality television venture features the gun-toting politico-turned-celebrity exploring her idea of American freedom: man caves, target shooting and race cars.
"Amazing America's" teaser "She's coming with a full heart and a full magazine," might be getting snickers but some think she's redefining political branding.
That's because, in this media obsessed culture, all of that on camera wilderness exploring, dog racing, and hunting, when coupled with fundraising and endorsing grassroots conservatives, adds up to a hefty boost in the Palin brand and political influence.
"It keeps her visible," said Julian Zelizer, a Princeton University historian and CNN contributor. "The way she's doing this, through reality television, might be the way politics is moving. Some kind of combination of being active in political arena...and acting in reality television might work."
In many ways it has for Palin....

All I know is that any Republican who gets an endorsement from Sarah is golden.
But the Greatest Endorsement comes from JimRob.
That Makes Sarah Golden.

And, welcome back, 2DV ;)
So glad to see you back! :-)
Glad to see you back.
Welcome back!! And I am shocked this actually came from CNN..pretty decent article..I am hoping that Time Warner Cable has this channel as I am really looking forward to Sarah’s show!
McCain gets endorsements from her... and he’s rather less than golden, IME.
Oh, nearly forgot, bump to Sarah!
Palin is the best endorsement in America, the best in history as far as I can find.
How’s she doing on Amnesty? The last that I heard, which was a while ago (I admit) was something to the effect that “Our Immigration System is Broken and Needs to be Fixed.”
That’s generally code words for accepting Amnesty in exchange for things that conservatives want. So, specifically, did she comment on the Senate Amnesty Bill? Maybe so, but I don’t remember hearing her at the time.
Palin’s not “jumping the shark” whatever that means. She’s hunting them, killing them, skinning them (for an Al Sharpton suit), and then eating them, sending the fins to Japan for soup.
All of that is beyond most at CNN except, perhaps, the writer.
