Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is just that, former Governor of Alaska. While I did not view her as a candidate for 2012, it is evident that some in the mainstream media did. Considering the inordinate amount of coverage the Palin family received in the months AFTER the election, surely some in the media and other talking heads viewed her as a threat. Otherwise, why go after a flash in the pan? Perhaps it is because she represented a departure from politics as usual? That’s yet to be seen. Should be interesting to see what she does from here on out.
