Is Sarah Palin Just A Media Whore?

January 14, 2009

Whenever a public personality, be it an entertainer or a politician, makes an embarrassing spectacle one of the first sage pieces of advice is to lay low, just do your job, and emerge again when the dust has settled and start afresh.  That is what many had suggested for Sarah Palin, the up-start GOP Vice-Presidential nominee who left more of a laughline on the body politic than success.

But over the months since the election she has taken every sound piece of advice on how to renew her name, and strengthen her image, and completely done just the opposite.  The latest interview where she castigated the media was just another treasure trove for political pundits, but did nothing to change the direction of her path that leads over the edge of the political cliff.

When I heard that even Mike Huckabee let it be known that one of Palin’s claims was just wrong concerning her interview with CBS’s Katie Kouric, did I fully realize how out of touch Palin is on the national stage.

The fact is that Sarah Palin has no ability to censor her mouth, or take any responsibility for the most laughable, and truly inept national campaign that America has witnessed in modern times.  When Palin takes on the entire media for merely asking legitimate questions during the campaign, questions it should be noted that needs to be answered by any novice politician, then it is just more proof that she is not in any way prepared for the serious role of a national leader.  She actually claims, by taking a swipe at bloggers, that real journalists use blogs as news sources.    It just goes to show how little she knows about the news business, or serious journalists, and thereby makes her claim that she really reads newspapers a hoot.

If she thinks that by using her eyelashes she can rewrite the story of 2008, then she is truly spending too much time out in the Alaskan cold.    If she thinks she should be able to dodge the very legitimate questions about her last pregnancy where her water broke in the lower 48 states, and then instead of getting medical attention got on a plane for a very bizarre trip to Alaska, she is nothing short of delusional.  There is more than enough argument that Trig is Bristol’s first child.  By not answering the questions, but instead only highlighting the issue, Palin does a serious disservice to her career.  Still worse for the nation, she does a disservice to the truth.

Palin’s peevishness at the role of reporters is most curious, in light of her claim that she actually reads newspapers.  Since she reads “all the publications” she must then have some sense that every politician is peppered with questions.  And if Palin were to look long enough in a mirror she would understand why she is needing to address them.  Why does she think she is above the responsibility of addressing those questions.  Questions that will not go away.  DAMN THOSE BLOGGERS!

But from a professional PR point of view this is not the time for Sarah Palin to keep talking.  She should stay low and find the time down the road to again inject herself into national politics, if that is what she thinks America deserves.

Until then she needs to put a cork in her mouth.

Or is Sarah Palin  just a media whore who can not give up the bright lights that shined during the last campaign?

    The Palins are all white trash grifters. I wonder if they read the blogs, it should make them feel bad at all the mean deserved things being said about them. Sarah Palin is mad because she thought she could go to the lower 48 and lie, steal and be stupid and get away with it as she did with the Alaskans. Palin is a thief, lier, mean petty and uneducated. her kids are all LOSERS like her. Track vandalizing school buses, how nice Sarah? Bristol having sex with evreyone in Wasilla, drinking and partying. Willow was aressted too for vandalizing. Palin doesn’t take care of her kids, poor Trip where is he. Palin is a failure as a women, as a mother and is delusional. please send this hypocrite peice pf trash home, Sarah we don’t neef you and don’t want you. Your trolling for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
