Gleefully I bring thee Neo-Con humour
Now that Palin has tasted the high life she is not about to give it up any time soon - and if that means making Liberals squirm while she speaks and is televised, or whoops it up with her 'fellow' neo-con nutcases as they buy into her persona, so be it.
Yet, with one piece of news you kinda begin to get the idea where she is going.
She knows, no matter what she or her family do, something like birth outside of wedlock for her family is OK but she would make it illegal for anyone else if ever elected to high, high office - but she does know that she cannot do anything wrong in her disciples eyes.
Sarah Palin has suggested Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck could be someone she'd consider as a running mate if she makes a bid for the White House in two years.
"I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I'm not there yet," Palin told the conservative news agency Newsmax as she promoted her memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life."
I am sure she does have a sense of humour - and I would bet that she is somewhat normal on her planet - but running-mate Glenn Beck!?
It is almost painful to watch neo-cons love her up and pay for her new found fame. But, they are keeping her in the news cycle and as long as that happens she will be fine with it. She is, after-all, raking in the cash.
How many books she has sold so far I have no idea, good on her, I say! Yet you do know, from looking from without the glass walls (that of course should be padded) that she, and Fox are taking the proverbial micky out of those who follow her and her new hero, Beck.
Palin and Beck have long been admirers of one another, with the former Alaska governor often praising the Fox News host on her Facebook page. A Palin-Beck ticket would be a dream come true for the legion of so-called tea party protesters vehemently opposed to Barack Obama's presidency.
The pair shares a tendency to strike fear into the hearts of their supporters. Palin, for her part, has alleged Obama is aiming to do away with the elderly and infirm with the so-called death panels in his health-care reform overhaul, while Beck has accused the president of being a racist, a socialist and has also drawn parallels between his policies and those of Adolf Hitler.
Let the play, play on. I just wonder how long it will take for the penny to drop on neo-con world - how long it will be that those who follow every word of this pair turn red-faced away from them and cower knowing that they have been played.
Personally I hope the charade carries on for a little while yet. It is amusing - in a very painful way.
