    She has a following. Its well, its sad. But its there. I'm not sure ignoring her will solve the problem. I don't know what will though.

    Sarah Palin is a self described Political Rogue. And she likes GUNS

      Her following isn't big enough to get her elected dogcatcher.

      Her following is very loud and very strident, but it is simply not an electoral majority--not even remotely.

      Palin isn't strong enough to even win the Repug primary, much less win a general election. (And believe me, I'd love nothing better than to have Palin be the 2012 nominee--we should be so lucky.)

      It's solely a dark fantasy on our part. We have made Palina SYMBOL of everything we don't like, which is why we pay so much attention to her.  But the reality is that she is a nonentity.  She makes none of the decisions and has none of the power.

        But I fear you're not.

          The reality is that Palin simply does not have the support of a majority of the Repug Party. She loses in poll after poll after poll after poll, against several different candidates.  She is not strong enough to win the primary, much less win a general election.

          The corporados are not on her side either, which makes a win on her part even more unlikely. Even with the Repug sweep in the 2010 midterms, most corporate industries still gave more money to Dems than they did to Repugs.
