Press plays paparazzi for Palin

Forget lamestream media. This is lamebrain media:
Sarah Palin and her advisers are refusing to tell members of the media where she is going on her current bus tour - and the former Alaska governor seems to be enjoying the cat and mouse game that's resulted.

"I don't think I owe anything to the mainstream media ... I want them to have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this, and that would include not necessarily telling them beforehand where every stop's going to be," she told fellow Fox News employee Greta Van Susteren in an interview from the bus. [...]

"It feels like she's baiting us and treating us like paparazzi and make the 'lamestream media' appear that way," said [CBS News Producer] Ryan Corsaro.
No Ryan, Palin fancies herself the Paris Hilton of politics. She is treating you like paparazzi and you're falling for it. Actually that's an insult to paparazzi. They're professionals. Palin is making the MSM look like idiot fanboys.

Palin is not going to run for President. All she wants is the attention. And as is being widely noted everywhere, except apparently in the newsrooms, if they stop chasing her for a week, she'll be very careful to tell them where she's going. Right now, all they're doing is playing court jester to her Imperial Narcissus. And losing any remaining shred of credibility they once had as journalists. Just pathetic.

It works though. I don't think the public wants anything we would call journalism but rather the escapades of celebrities. If she's trying to look like an anti-intellectual rascal, thumbing her nose at everyone, she's doing it well.

I hope she becomes the candidate, I really do.

Lot of people hoping that Fogg, but not me. As entertaining it would be, even the remotest possibility that she might actually win would be such a disaster.

Do not expect Palin has what it would take to get her name on the ballot again after the last fling with the powers of right wing inclination. And they do want repayment on their largesse.

She's not running. America's Best Grifter has a good gig going. If she doesn't declare, she can fleece the rubes and ride their donations to her PAC on the world's greatest self promotion tour, right up to the convention and not really have to do any actual work.

She's running for riches, I think, not for office. She had trouble paying her bills before all this, nos she's rich.

Exactly right Fogg. And she LOVES playing the celebrity, surrounded by the media and signing autographs for the little people.
