Sarah Palin

The Palin Paradox

Sarah Palin's Fox News ratings are falling apart. More proof that conservatives only really like the idea of Sarah Palin more than the actual Sarah Palin. Or as Jed Lewison writes:

The sharp viewer drop-off is a perfect example of the Palin Paradox: if it weren't for television, Sarah Palin would be an absolute zero -- nobody would care about her at all. But at the same time, the more she goes on television, the worse her image gets.

I won't lie here -- there's a part of me that loves watching the slow motion train wreck. I mean, it's been a year and a half since she (repeatedly) couldn't accurately describe the duties of the vice president. And she's only become more ridiculous, rather than more polished.
