Slack tide: Alaskaepoedia: Sarah Palin
By By GEOFF KIRSCH
Sarah Louise Heath Palin (born Feb. 11, 1964) is a politician and political commentator — also known as a ‘pundititian’ — a tabloid mainstay, a television personality and what some people might call an ‘author.’
Palin is currently Alaska’s second-largest export and, unlike its first, just when you think she’s past peak production, she drills down and hosts the ‘Today’ show or something.
Sarah Palin also enjoys naming her children after inanimate objects.
As Republican nominee for Vice President of the United States in the 2008 presidential election, Palin was the first and probably last Alaskan to appear on a major party’s national ticket. She was also the first Republican woman nominated for the vice presidency, though the title of the first female VP nominee in general belongs to Geraldine Ferraro. But she never got a series on TLC.
