Palin Has Bright Future In Hollywood
"As campaign managers for Sarah Palin plot last-minute tactics to get her elected, Hollywood bigwigs are convening strategy sessions of their own. Their goal: finding the ideal on-air vehicle for the vp candidate if and when she exits politics.
Love her or hate her -- there doesn`t seem to be much middle ground with Palin -- the 44-year-old hockey mom has captured the public imagination in a way no politician has since, well, Barack Obama."

Sarah Palin is utterly unqualified to serve as vice-president, but she`s the biggest start to emerge from the 2008 presidential race. Palin is the most searched candidate on the Internet, we can`t get enough of this moose-killing, polar bear hating, wink-happy and beautiful hockey mom.
Palin is single-handedly responsible for the reemergence of "Saturday Night Live." Whenever any news program manages to land an interview with Palin, its ratings go through the roof. If "Watching Grass Grow" on a House and Garden cable network convinced Palin to make a cameo, its ratings would rival Cinemax,s softcore porn offerings. Larry Flynt filmed a porn flick starring a Palin lookalike, when it`s released I`m sure the DVD will set a record for a porn video.
Palin would be perfect as a host of a Sean Hannity like cable opinion show. She isn`t nuanced or articulate, but she`s in your face and that approach always garners huge ratings.
I hope the McCain/Palin ticket is defeated at the polls, but I wish Palin nothing but success as a celebrity.
