Little people like her? Someone remind Sarah that she nearly became Vice President of the United States, that she has a show on Fox News. Really this woman's self perception is amazing.

I don't get Palin's popularity with the right wing. I honestly don't. What is it? She is not that good looking is she? Or do they like how she throws in immature mean girl insults at the Democrats and Obama? Is it the religion and guns angle? All of the above?

You're not little, Sarah. You're small.

She's got a flair for populism: she knows how to flatter her constituents and demonize her opponents. She's also very good at suggesting that she and conservatives like her (white, Rapture-ready Christian, upper middle class, jingoistic and culturally imperialist) are the real victims.

Agree though class wise I think her appeal is more middle than upper middle class. Too bad she didn't run because I would be interested in seeing what her actual base would be.

Kerry’s single acknowledgement of Palin was one more mention than she received from Republicans during their convention last month.

Maybe she should be mad at her own stupid party.

It's kind of funny that Palin was mentioned more by the Democrats than by her own Republican party.

I don't think Mitt and the Republican establishment like her. Mitt probably genuinely looks down on her.

Palin is not a serious political figure. She's a happening. She has a flair for christian populist victimology - indeed, read anything about her biography and it screams at you - which the GOP base responds to.

But when it comes to actually work to do anything...you know, governing, leading, persuading people to your point of view, there is no there there at all.
