    Hey, here's another POV.  

    I thought Palin was relevant to anyone only in her own mind, and had become passe even to the CPAC crowd and Fox.   Instead, given how much attention both sets are giving her, I think it is interesting marker of just how thread-bare the veer-right conservative movement is.  She was "discovered" what, about seven years ago now, and she's done nothing since then but lose an election, quit her job, and be a grifter with her books, yet she's still one of the best they have to offer.

    Yeah, there's a universe of other stuff to cover too, but these bits and pieces help form interesting mosaics too.

      I think it shows how threadbare our Party is.  Its hard to find positive diaries about Democrats but if Palin farted during breakfast, there'd be 3 diaries about it by noon.  Plus another diary about how the RW media covered the fart.  If there is a bee in my bonnet it is because diaries like these show how a lack of seriousness about who and what is important. Why not write a Dan Quayle diary?  He actually was the Vice President and has as good a chance as Palin of being the nominee. Plus it comes off as cheap Two Minute Hate.
