in its entirety, as if it's news.

The other news channels were covering real news -- the Malaysian crash and the Ukraine crisis, mostly.

But there's little GOP propaganda value in that, compared to a Fox-promoted celebrity speaking to a Fox-promoted conference of the far-right.

There was literally nothing new in Palin's smirking performance, unless you count her lame anti-Obama jokes as new.

While some in the crowd urged her to "Run Sarah run," she finished tied for 10th at 2 percent in the over-hyped straw poll.

We should be so lucky to have her be the GOP nominee in 2016, but not gonna happen because she won't work that hard.

It's much easier to give a couple five-figure speeches a month, and that's what she'll do for as long as the wingnut market will pay for her performances.

Here are some links to coverage of her latest performance:

Breitbart's tongue bath has the speech embedded.

National Review's mash note has "Run Sarah run" in the headline, and includes this absurd anti-Obama joke: "No, you can’t make a phone call without Michelle Obama knowing this is the third time you dialed Pizza Hut delivery."

Business Insider reports that the DNC liked the speech so much they planned to send it to reporters with this note, "We hope you enjoy it as much as we did."

The Huffington Post notes her tribute to unpopular Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by doing a jokey riff on "Green Eggs and Ham". How original!

The Washington Post also notes her close connection to Cruz, who she helped get into the Senate: "Thank you, Texas! 'Cause liberty needs a Congress on Cruz-control."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
