Sarah Palin: No Alaska for Hot New Media Star

Description came onto the election scene much later than John McCain, President-elect Barack Obama or Vice President-elect Joe Biden - but she instantly became the media’s favorite contender. New gossip suggests that Palin may not pack her bags to head back home right away…she just might have some gigs lined up in Tinseltown first.

A spokesman for Random House (one of the biggest publishing houses in the biz) told the New York Post’s Page Six that “there are several of our imprints who are eager to talk to Governor Palin. She clearly has a constituency and we know books by conservatively-centered politicos usually sell very, very well.” So she might as well take more jobs away from the real writers of the world.

Other gossip hints that Palin could be offered a slot as a TV pundit (I’ve got money riding on this one - I just know would do damn near anything to have her) or even as a talk-show host.

Sure, that makes sense.

Vice President Palin: Is the World Ready?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Videos,

Sarah Palin

Pundits and political professionals have spent the last several months repeatedly asking the same question: is America ready to be led by someone who is outside the accepted status quo? In other words, could we have a non-white President? It’s been one of the hottest topics of the year, and it gave a lot of attention with the press. That is, until McCain pulled his trump card.

Otherwise known as Sarah Palin. Attractive, conservative, Yankee-ish and much, much younger than McCain, Palin has helped to change the feel of the entire campaign. Could she change the entire election? The media has been asking, for several months, if America is really ready to be led by a black man. Now, there’s another big question on the table. Is the world ready for the likes of - that self-styled bulldog-in-lipstick-hockey-mom who can’t keep her Yahoo business private and somehow found herself on the nation’s biggest political stage?

Not that it matters much, but doesn’t seem to think so.

Sarah Palin and the Email Read ‘Round the World

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Breaking News,

Sarah Palin

A bizarre series of events have culminated to create a few new truths in this year’s political race to the White House: one, seems to have something to hide; two, the microscope under which Palin lives just got amped up; and three, Palin is truly one of the biggest celebrities in the world…for now. How will this change John McCain’s celebrity attack ads? Not at all - yet one more reason his campaign is completely and totally derailed, failing spectacularly to connect with the American public on any real level.

The thing is, potential President isn’t news. Hell, the man isn’t even relevant. Today, the media revolves around Sarah Palin. Maybe tomorrow, too. Palin is now the subject of inspection and Internet interrogation, her every move to be dissected and discussed. When the private email of a very public figure becomes a matter of public record, what else do you expect?

Sarah PalinMichelle Obama on The View

Had Hillary Clinton won the Democratic nomination, there’s a chance we would be talking about a demand on pantsuits right now. (Probably not, but it’s possible.) But since she wasn’t, the fashion focus has now been placed on the other females currently in the political spotlight.

Ever since Sarah Palin’s appearances at the Republic National Convention, interest in the candidate’s $375 glasses have reportedly quadrupled. According to Italee Optics Inc., the manufacturer is now having to produce the eyewear around the clock.

This news comes months after Michelle Obama appeared on The View in another must-have piece. Once it was revealed that her black-and-white dress was an off the rack item purchased at White House Black Market, the retailer was flooded with calls for the $148 garment.
