    Lots of folks willing to pay big bucks for her "You bethcas", or just curious to hear what she might say next?

    She is the most interesting political figure in America today - and among the most influential.

    It will be interesting to see what she does over the course of the next six to twelve months as we head into the 2010 midterm elections. Her PAC raised nearly a million dollars in six months and she has many requests from conservative candidates to stump for them.

    She is a fascinating figure in American politics...

    She is interesting, I'll give her that. But not in a complimentary way.

    What is more interesting that her personal brand of dumbed-down politics seems to echo so well with a small percentage of people - Sarah Palin supporters are rabidly pro-Palin, whereas everyone else, from both sides of the aisle, think she's a joke. She's got charisma - that's for sure. And she's gonna keep getting offers for speeches, because that's the niche she's carved out - she'll never actually be relevant again, but she's a great talking head. When it comes down to it, she'll never actually matter, because politics is infinitely more complicated than her rhetoric, and a majority of people see that.

    You want dumbed-down politics from a vapid talking head, look no further than Hopey Changey.

    Maybe there is a political future for Palin after all. :eusa_think:
