You So Crazy Alert™:
Sarah Palin breakdown!

Publication: Globe
Date: 31 January 2011

Sarah Palin wanted fame and fortune and now she's got it. It may not last, but early this year she is one of the favorite targets of The Three Wicked Step Sisters, the Enquirer, Globe and the low rent Examiner. The Enquirer had a story this week about Todd tomcatting around on her, and now the Globe is reporting she is having a breakdown, saying the tragedy in Tuscon has pushed her over the edge.

Sarah Palin has a lot of qualities that make some people love her and some people hate her. She speaks to her base very effectively, she's physically attractive, her story resonates with regular folks trying to get by. She also is very confrontational and nothing is ever, ever her fault. But I think the thing that has made her go through the roof and even catch the attention of the tabloids is the instant celebrity part of her story. In some ways, she's like Susan Boyle or Joe The Plumber or the homeless announcer guy Ted Williams, but unlike them, the press cannot seem to get enough of her, for good or for ill.

If she weren't good looking, virtually NO ONE would catch fire.

I wish she were having a breakdown over Tuscon. It's always all about Sarah.

I buy her having a breakdown about as much as I buy Mel Gibson being suicidal. It's just not in their natures.

Narcissists don't have breakdowns.
After Rep. Giffords was shot, Palin had the balls to claim victimhood.
I think her 15 minutes are just about up, or else she'll be relegated to Punchlineland and continue to cry 'poor me.'

As my mom once said about a former friend of hers, "She doesn't get ulcers. She's a carrier."
