Doomed?

From MarketWatch Columnist Jon Friedman at CBS.com...

The Sarah Palin Phenomenon is doomed.

But it's not because of her lack of foreign policy experience or her deer-in-the-headlights look during part of her interview last week with ABC's Charles Gibson.

The primary reason why the Palin bubble will burst is that the media will decide that they are bored with her. They'll need to move to shine a light on a fresh issue or individual.


Is that a fact?

Well, then, Mr. Media Man... Tell us some more about how powerful and influential you are.

Let's take bets as to how many people will remember Sarah Palin's name in 100 years, and how many will not remember your's, Mr.... (wait, let me look again...) Friedman.

"We made her, and we will tear her back down at our leisure."

Well, from the way the big media has acted about Sarah Palin, she looks like about the very LAST thing that those guys wanted, from Charlie Gibson right on down. (By the way... Which interview did you watch, Mr. Friedman?)

Oh, and remember this...

She only has to last for another 49 days, 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 57 seconds.

56, 55, 54, 53...

Yea, I read that article too and thought it amusing that he considered Gov. Palin to be a disposable celebrity like Lindsey Lohan or Paris Hilton. She most certainly is not. That was his first mistake. Second, the media DID NOT create her; she created herself. That is why these faux feminists hate her. She didn't ask their permission and she never subscribed to their doctrine of victim hood. They are talkers and she is a doer. Mr. Friedman is demonstrating the exact reasoning (and I use that word loosely) why someone like Obama has made it as far as he has. He is a Pop-Tart; Sarah is not and I suspect that she will be around for quite some time

Sarah Palin may well turn out to be the savior of a party that has wandered off the right path into a tangle of stinging vines...

Unfortunately, it's possible she has to last 8 1/2 years. That's the fear.
