Though she got a lot of mileage out of the Letterman non-fiasco, keeping people talking for at least a good week, it's very easy to be forgotten. By the time SC Governor Mark Sanford confessed to leaving his state without a leader, to visit his mistress in Argentina, the Letterman/Palin ordeal was ancient history.
So Sarah (or someone) found an altered photograph of Sarah holding Trig at the Republican National Convention and decided to be publicly outraged (again) about that. And it made the headlines. It was one of the top stories on cable news channels throughout the day.
But alas, before she could enjoy the dinnertime/evening news coverage, Michael Jackson had to go and die. Gosh darn it, couldn't he have waited a week?
I guess she'll either have to revive her latest personal insult in a few days or find a new one. By the way, is there a job in her office which involves finding unsavory jokes and such about her and her family in the media? If so, I would like to apply. I live nowhere near Alaska, but I can see the Internet and TV from my house.
I hope this article helps, Sarah. I'm sure people will come along and say rotten things about you. Bookmark this page, because you'll find your ticket to the headlines here. If not, just follow my profile to other stories and comments about you. We've got to keep your name in every household until 2012!
I think we should start with Michael Jackson's death. With plans to tour the world and attempt to revive his career, he obviously stole your thunder by having the nerve to die today. Farrah Fawcett, too. Let's get publicly outraged by these celebrities who divert Americans' attention from things that are really important - like Sarah Palin, for example.
And if you don't like that idea, don't worry. There are plenty of "bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie" and they ridicule you daily. We've got plenty of material to use in our quest to make you the world's most famous woman.
PALIN/FAKE OUTRAGE 2012!!!
