Look what happens when you ignore her

She fades away:

Amid diminishing media interest, Sarah Palin has quit her high-profile bus tour halfway through and returned to Alaska with her family, according to RealClearPolitics.

The move puts a damper on widespread speculations that Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour, which launched on Memorial Day, was a precursor to a potential White House bid for 2012. Palin never made it to her scheduled stops in the key primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

RealClearPolitics, which originally broke the story about the bus tour, reported Wednesday on Palin’s “extended hiatus.” The remaining legs of her trip, according to Scott Conroy, are “in limbo” as “Palin and her family have reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska.”

Jon Stewart had a recent interview on FOX Noise where his take-away point was that the media loves sensationalism. Combine that with lazy reporting and we get all this useless coverage of people like Sarah Palin. Ever since John McCain failed to vet her, her career has been about being a slightly-legitimized sort of reality show star – that legitimacy coming almost purely from the media’s unending attention.

I just hope she keeps refusing to tell reporters her schedule, or why she’s doing something, or any other detail of her itinerary. The more the quitter gets ignored, the better.

  1. She’s gone back for jury duty. Should read a few more articles.

  2. Too bad. Now we’re going to have to endure the media going nuts over all this again when she starts back up.

  3. I don’t know how it works in Alaska. In Maine you know about jury duty weeks or months in advance.

  4. Why would any prosecutor or defense attorney want her on a jury? Pure circus.

    She is such a light weight that she will blow away on the national stage. Bachmann is the one to watch out. Her ignorance is coupled with evil.

  5. She has all but faded from a political career. Her career as a celebrity will continue for a while but then like Lady Gaga or Madona, will fade into the shadows.

  6. Bob, your liberal rhetoric fu is weak.

    And getting weaker.

    I don’t understand the ignoring her part either, she has had better press coverage than some of the people actually running for the GOP nod. She completely big footed Romney in NH when he made his announcement.

  7. Nate your English language usage is weak. Palin barely got any votes down south where the racists live which are her constituents ( the tea party).

  8. My usage is weak? Do you ever read what you write? You should take some notes on how you write it.

    What votes are you even talking about?

  9. The pride of the tea party, the hope of the Republicans:
