It strikes me as odd how easy it is to get people talking about Sarah Palin, as if she's relevant in any tangible way. I mean, I'm a Republican, I like her, I think she'd make a better leader than Obama, but I'm not in love with the discussion of her (negative or positive) the way most liberals seem to be. They're usually only talking about how dumb, stupid, and ignorant she is (which is more empty name-calling than hard-hitting analysis, for those of us over the age of 9), but do they not realize that any person you make a big deal about is going to be popular? The old adage of "any press is good press" has never been truer. The reason why Sarah Palin is such a big deal is because liberals still have fake-outrage boners about everything she's ever said or done. Conversely, the reason most people are souring over Obama is because the Right isn't obsessively infatuated with who he is as a person. We're more concerned about what kind of executive he is. If the Right went on over Obama the way the Left goes on over Palin, he'd still have 50% approval ratings or better.
