TIME Best of Politics Goes To ...

"Best Of ..." lists start appearing about this time every year and this year is no exception. TIME Magazine has some of the most amazing best of the year gadgets and inventions we've ever seen with most of them available to the public right now. TIME also has a category for Best Political Invention and you won't believe what/who it is.

We asked TIME's senior political analyst Mark Halperin for the year's biggest invention in politics:

'The 140-character political endorsement. Forget the travel, the bunting, the balloons, the rallies and the pesky follow-up questions from the lamestream media. Sarah Palin has re-engineered the laying on of campaign hands with her Twitter and Facebook nods to favored candidates.'
Imagine that! Sarah Palin re-engineered politics! Not bad for an uneducated, backwoods, gun-totin', Bible thumpin' moose killer who can see Russia from her house.

I think she is awesome but she has been so battered and bruised by the media that she is damaged goods and probably could never win a nationwide election. Her future probably lies in a high level appointed position. Don

Indigo Red said...

Agreed, Don. Perhaps in the old convention nominating system that allowed for the best, brightest, and damaged to succeed. There is not enough good will to support a full blown campaign.

I agree that Palin may not be electable but it would certainly be an interesting primary season if she were to run.

Would indeed be an interesting primary, Mike. That Gov Palin is talking very seriously with her family about a 2012 run makes even the anticipation interesting.
