Palin is SO 2008.

Of course nobody cares anymore.... she looks like the "Team America: World Police" version of herself now.

She's getting less hot, but she ain't getting any smarter. It's a bad combination.

So it's true that you can't fool all the people all the time.

It looks like she got a bunch of work done sometime before she ran for Government of Alaska. It's all falling down and loosening up on her. She is way too famous and too closely watched to do that sort of thing now. Everybody would notice a new facelift. Her skin was way too tight in 2008 for a women her age with several kids. Look how loose it is now. Her lips are even thinner. No normal women would fall apart this fast unless she was doing meth or had plastic surgery. Look how much work her daughter got done. Well, mom did it... This family is not anti-plastic surgery.

Everything about her is short sighted.

Palin remains in the spotlight because she is a good barometer of what All Republicans are thinking on any given day. The more stupid her actions, the more likely they will be blindly followed and supported by every single member of the GOP.

She could be getting regular minor tuneups though (Botox and what not), trying to maintain the appearance without making dramatic changes.

Highly plausible.

But consider the woman's psychology.  Let's not underestimate the power of her fall from grace, relevance, and importance.  I'm sure that her new lowly station has taken its toll on her state of mind, and by extension her appearance.

Who ever wrote this
And now the other famous one, Sarah Palin also rumored the same way here. Sarah Palin not only smart, but she is also hot and controversial with a lot of scandal floating around her and her family. That's why when she had a new face that was rumored from plastic surgery, public alleged that she took the sexiness and beauty to campaign and gain votes for her political career.

I hope that English isn't there first language if this was written by someone who is during surgery.

So wait, now we get articles about no one caring about Palin?  Seems like thats still caring.

How about we get to the point that no one writes about her at all?  That would be good.  I think we went almost a month without a palin related article, lets try for two now that the clock has been reset by subby.

The author talks about America like it's a foreign place, so it's probably someone in another country writing their website in English because (as we know) it's the lingua franca of celebrity plastic surgery websites.

AirForceVet: Palin is SO 2008.


Ya know, I'm weird because I actually like Sarah Palin and at one point in time I thought she had a future in politics...not necessarily Presidential material but somewhere in the mix. So it is sad to see how she has marginalized herself and basically derped herself into irrelevancy. Politics is a "what have you done for me lately" business and Palin hasn't actually done anything in years. It is not even a question of being in the political wilderness, she hasn't done anything at all. At least Gingrich has been out running for office. At this point in time she needs to do what politicians do which is either (a) get elected somewhere or (b) get appointed somewhere.

BTW, I still think Huckabee/Palin could be formidable in 2016 but it has zero chance of happening.

No, it's an apt comparison. Both have talents and skills... but not for the jobs they think they should have.

If she announced a run tomorrow (for pretty much any elected office in America), it'd be wall-to-wall coverage on every network for months (plural).  She lives rent free in liberals' heads.
 
2013-08-27 11:38:29 AM  
I think she looks better than ever...for my purposes.  Tired.  Haggard.  Desperate...  I bet there isn't anything she wouldn't do to stay in the spotlight, to keep that PAC money rolling in.  Her...or her daughters...

I don't think so.  I think they've moved on, and Palin is just yesterday's trash.  Most everyone sees through her little act and ignores her.  Those who don't lead pretty sad and desperate lives defined only by how much they believe they can piss other people off.

She has always reminded me of Peggy, on "King of the Hill."  Kind of appealing, in the same way as Bugs Bunny in drag.

It did seem like the author rather missed the irony of his own article. I particularly liked the part where he lists three different media outlets (including his own) that are still willing to cover even the most banal of Palin's musings:

FTA: In fact, if I were not a regular Wonkette, which still cares enough to cover Sarah Palin as a politician, I never would have known about Palin's announcement, which came during a Friday appearance on Fox News' On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, an appearance that was actually covered on this here Mediaite website right here.

I'd have given her a good 5 years before frumpiness erased any MILFyness she once had.

The thing is... there are hotter women older than she is out there. Hitching her wagon to the Teabagger Express doesn't not do one any favors WRT aging gracefully apparently.
