For those who wonder what the former Alaska wondergov has been up to, here's a peek.
Note that SP looks more like a movie star than ever. She's being handled, all right!
Note that she is great at preaching to and whipping up the choir -- in this case right wing bloggers.
Note that you didn't have to see the movie "Game Change" to find it ironic that this former veep candidate, who self-destructed in her media interview and, it turns out, was improperly vetted herself by the McCain campaign, would be talking about vetting and the media not doing their job!

On Friday night Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) delivered a fiery speech that ripped the media for not vetting then-Senator Barack Obama. Palin spoke to the Right Online conference in Las Vegas.
Palin drove her point home about the media not vetting Obama when she went on a riff of "if the media had done their job ..."
"You do what the old media won't do and can't do and that's tell the truth," Palin said. However, Palin had slight praise for member of the media who don't want to a member of "Makecrapupistan."
Palin praised Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report for being a pioneer who first reported stories that the media ignored, namely the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
"I have learned in the last four years or so, it doesn’t do any good to personally complain about the untruths told by the old media. I might as well save my breath. Shoot, by now I should have been divorced how many times? Under FBI investigation. Living in the Hamptons. It still is a great mystery who really is Trig Paxon Van Palin’s real mother," Palin told the audience.
Palin ended the speech with her signature line: "Don't retreat. Reload with that inspiration."
Thanks to the Right Scoop for capturing the full speech
Oh, come on now, guys! Sarah Palin is awesome. Every time she speaks, a Democrat gets elected. She used to be a Democrat. I think that she, Rick Perry (another Democrat) and George W. Bush all had a secret meeting in the early 90's and decided to bring down the GOP from the inside. How's that for a conspiracy theory? It fits the facts!
I agree 100 percent. I just watched the McCain movie about her and she was something else indeed. Can you believe she actually said you can see Russia from Alaska. The McCain camp knew real early into it that they had messed up.
If Palin is an example of the Tea Party then we live in a very sad messed up country. You know what really amazes me is that so many people will support her and not read her record. As a mayor of Wasilla and later Governor of Alaska she left a lot to be desired. Read the record people. Its out there.
I don't support either of our fine parties. Or their candidates. I will most likely vote for the Green Party. I know it's a wasted vote but I consider a vote for either the Republicans or Democrats to be a wasted vote.
Actually, you CAN see Russia from Alaska:

But SP is still a dingbat.

These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence. In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified presidential hopeful in the history of the United States of America. We...

This past election there was a lot of energy created in the choice by John McCain to have Sarah Palin as his running mate. What do you feel was the reason for this choice and how do you think she was qualified to be the Vice President. Could you please be factual with your replies to...
