What Is Your Favorite Sarah Palin Moment?

Doggonit — 2008 was Sarah Palin’s breakout year, and whether you love the lipstick-wearing hockey mom's mavericky conservative credentials, or cringe at her policies, you have to agree that she made this year pretty memorable!

Before the end of August, most of us had no idea that Sarah Palin would leave such a mark. She soon made it obvious, with an electric speech at the Republican National Convention, which helped McCain surge ahead in the polls. But after a few stumbles in interviews with the likes of Katie Couric, some became extra curious about the impending VP debate. In the end, the Alaska governor delivered a one-of-a-kind debate performance for Joe Sixpack watching at home.

And who can forget the more playful moments? Palin starred next to look-a-like Tina Fey on SNL. And days before the election we found out the RNC spent $150,000 on Palin's wardrobe, which caused some to call BS on the regular-Joe routine and others to declare Sarah a victim of sexism. Finally, when the campaign ended for good, Sarah came back into our lives with some Thanksgiving spirit, giving an interview while someone slaughtered turkeys right behind her.

We haven't seen the last of Sarah Palin. Get over it.

Lets face it.....Sara was used by McCain to get the women's vote. It didn't work out because she probably got more of the male voters because she is very attractive and we know how guys are. She is not as brainy as Mrs. Clinton or Katie Couric but I give her credit for doing her best and having her 15 mins of fame!!.

That's what I'm saying. The point WAS to demean. Why demean?? The mean-spiritedness has worn way thin.

But I think the point was to demean Governor Palin. I can't think of a way to say "I enjoyed the interviews because they revealed her lack of education on national issues" in a way that doesn't demean her.

Point taken, True Song, but I think there are ways of getting our points across without demeaning someone. If someone said I was dumb, I would consider that the same thing as calling me a Dummy. Just saying...

She didn't actually call someone a name. She said someone was dumb, which is an insulting adjective to be sure, but not a name. Now if I called her a Dummy, that's calling names. Just saying. Precision in language is undervalued.

Great Sommelier, I agree with you.

I liked them all, every moment was her. She was herself, whether you excepted or not.

I agree, skigurl. The best thing about SP is Piper holding Trig.

no i didn't see the thread on it here. I only saw what was broadcast on the news, and I thought it was hilarious. Tina Fey couldn't have written it better. But then that goes for a lot of things concerning Palin ;)

Hmm, not sure the turkey being killed behind her was so much controversial as just really, really bad choice of doing an interview after you had just participated in the pardoning of the turkey!! A bit ironic don't ya think? And that's why it was so hilarious ad my favorite Palin moment to top off the election!

And my comment about Sarah Palin... well that's an inside joke between stephley and I. ;)

That Turkey-draining thing was a controversy, I guess, but I have no idea why. I can't imagine anyone caring about some turkey that happened to be killed behind Sarah Palin.
