The Last Word On Sarah Palin

Seen on 51st Street and Lexington Ave in NYC

And now ... a calculated sound bite from the minor league celebrity and polarizing faux patriot-in-training wheels known as Sarah "Get Rich Quick Scheme" Palin.

At a Tea Party movement gathering in Boston today, Ms. Palin said "I want to tell 'em, nah, we'll keep clinging to our Constitution and our guns and religion - and you can keep the change."

. . . . . . . . 

In a conversational piece titled Who Will Lead the Republican Party? by David Brooks and Gail Collins in the April 14, 2010 edition of The New York Times, Mr. Brooks says:

"First, let's all stop paying attention to Sarah Palin for a little while. I understand why liberals want to talk about her. She allows them to feel intellectually superior to their opponents. And members of the conservative counterculture want to talk about her simply because she drives liberals insane. But she is a half-term former governor with a TV show. She is not going to be the leader of any party and doesn't seem to be inclined in that direction.

The Sarah Palin phenomenon is a media psychodrama and nothing more. It gives people on each side an excuse to vent about personality traits they despise, but it has nothing to do with government.

She is in 2010 what Jerry Falwell was from the mid-1990s until his death - a conservative cartoon inflated by media. Evangelicals used to say that Falwell had three main constituency groups - ABC, CBS and NBC."
