A very nice article about Ms. Palin. To be accurate, to blame for Sarah Palin are two prominent politicians who chose to be dazzled by Sarah's early governorship in Alaska and to bring her into the national Spotlight as the VP candidate on the Republican ticket in 2008. The two men are Newt Gingrich and John McCain. All that followed has been the result of a "charismatic personality" taking hold in the modern media world. A very similar experience has occurred for the Democrats with the ascension of another poorly placed political figure, Barack Obama. Palin and Obama dazzled older and wiser heads… and without requiring the kind of long, hard work most people were expected to perform in the "old days," whether it was politics or business, Obama and Palin were catapulted into the public consciousness, and we are all suffering the just awful results.
