Picture of the Day

Whatever "it" is, she's got "it."

Love her or hate her, people can't stop talking about her. I mean, she had a horrible last year, (can you imagine any other politician surviving all those gaffes?) and yet she still gets all the attention.

Here she is arriving at the NRCC/NSRC fundraiser to applause. ((AP/Manuel Balce Ceneta)


  • Look, she's the GOP pin-up girl. In many ways -- mentally, emotionally -- she's a female George Bush. Always confident, usually wrong, never letting reality get in the way of "belief," and incredibly hypocritical. (Rules or for others, It's OK if your a Republican/Christian)

  • Well, but there are alot of others that meet your criteria, but she, continues on, carrying the spotlight.

  • There are not a lot of other WOMEN in the GOP that meet this criteria. And she has the cred from being VP nominee. The wingers accepted her -- indeed, eleveted her -- as their spokesmodel back in 2008.

    And -- I hate to say this -- she's kinda like a GOP centerfold... there's a real sexual undercurrent here. Winger women want to be her, winger men want to.... well, you know. (Just when you think Freud has been discredited....)

  • That's true. Plus, the "unfair" attacks against her forged an emotional bond amongst her defenders.

  • She's the ultimate GOP trophy wife: a woman with a good paycheck, in a powerful position, who lets you come in and help her dictate policy after a hard day racing snowmobiles.

  • I may be wrong, but she doesn't seem a woman who likes to be dictated to...
