Palin "didn't know Africa was a continent", had tantrums and couldn't cooperate with the campaign - and It was put off the record?!? You didn't think that this was important enough to report anyway?

"She was hard to control emotionally"?? "threw temper tantrums"? WTF? I mean, I fear Sarah Palin as much as the next European but doesn't it seem they're casting her as hysterical and childish? Typical hersketeknikker used against women.

A reason to keep paying attention after the election might be the possibility of Sarah Palin running for president or other high office in the future, I suppose.

I agree, Jill. This says as much about how the whole "ZOMG!1! we have the first female candidate bla bla bla" was a front for an instrumental view on the candidacy.

I think this is Fox fronting an internal struggle already happening in the GOP. The social/secular moderate conservatives are trying to position themselves to oust the fundamentalists from power while they are in disarray trying to find a new leader.

OTOH, it could be an internal faction in the fundamentalist movement trying to tar her, realising she is an obviously incompetent leader and knowing it will be the death knell of their movement if she becomes its de facto leader.

Whatever is happening, it's obvious that Palin was a pawn with purely symbolic value. There was never any political reason for including her on the ticket. Now they are trying to put the genie they let out back in the lamp.

Anon: GOD, yes. I need a new obsession.

Mette: Du blogger igjen! Herlig.
