IF Sarah Palin actually wrote this article herself, without any help from the Russians she could see from her house, she may be worthy of a rethink
IF she wrote that article, I think she's genuinely back on the radar.
I know someone who's trying to get an interview with her specifically to follow up on this article and to ensure it wasn't ghost written.
Personally, I've formed the opinion that she's an idiot......I'll be both disappointed if it turns out I was wrong and was brainwashed......and I'll be disappointed if it turns out I'm right and this promising article is just a ghost written mercenary piece to allow her to find a base for influence and profit in the period ahead.
She has as much in politics to do as the guy sits outside the grocery store a block away from here feeding the birds and yelling and dogs and foreigners
What is the media message we receive about Palin?
Are our opinions actually our own and truly informed?
How much at risk are we individually and collectively from falling victim partially or fully in having our opinions shaped away from reality?
What I recall about Palin was how she could see Russia from her house, Tina Fey as Sarah Palin, her daughter got knocked up, and she hunts moose about as much as John Kerry goes target shooting.
The rest of it I really don't know because the bias from each gallon of the media tidal wave is hard to measure.
I'm quite skeptical.......but if it turns out she actually wrote it(proven by some tough interviewing to gauge howbroad and deep she understands her "own" content could go a long way in changing my opinion.....and potentially seeing a very obvious example of passively allowing myself to being so easily manipulated by the media.
Occam's Razor applies.......but we live in very interesting times where no one is unbiased......and character assassins are too numerous to count.
