WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sarah Palin has firmly remained in the media spotlight since her bid for the vice presidency ended four months ago, but the Alaska governor embraced a decidedly lower profile when she traveled to the nation's capital this weekend.
The former Republican vice presidential candidate has scheduled a busy itinerary of closed-door events and face time with congressional Democrats and Republicans.
She also announced earlier this week she's making the 4,500-mile trek from Alaska to Washington primarily to attend the Alfalfa Club Dinner Saturday night - an annual closed-door roast of the nation's political elite.
But it's what's missing from Palin's schedule that is causing more than a few heads to turn. In a city that is ground-zero for national political journalists, Palin has not scheduled a single media interview or indicated she will hold a press conference.
Lying low? If her mouth is open she's just lying.
This woman is a waste of ink – why keep reporting her every move?
Get over it.
Maybe she has finally realized we don't care.Her time is up.There are too many good women out there to settle for her in any party.
"Palin has not scheduled a single media interview or indicated she will hold a press conference."
Of course she won't do media interview or press conference – unless it is Greta, she looks and sounds like a complete FOOL. On second thought, even if it IS Greta, she sounds like a complete fool.
This brain-dead moron is trying to be in the spotlight no matter who gets hurt. She is next for impeachment in Alaska for conflict of interest and misuse of Federal Funding.
If she wanted to lay low she should had stayed in Alaska where a volcano is about to errupted.
Huh! Didn't she say a couple of weeks ago that her one regret is that she did not give more interviews? But, I don't blame her for wanting to take a break, and maybe she really does not have any intention of running for President. If she were to run, of course she would have to give more interviews. But, that is years away.
I'm still guessing how to translate "Palinese"
She's the perfect candidate for the new and revamped Rushpublican party.
How the media treated her? She exposed herself for the idiot that she is.
Sarah Palin will never be able to keep her mouth shut for too long. She just loves to hear her own voice over and over again. She will never be able to be perceived as a serious politician from the majority of voters out there. She will always have her base which is made up of fringe conservative wingnuts. Main stream voters will never follow Sarah and her extremely conservative values.
Who needs to hear her blowing off steam that doesn't mean a thing....What a dingbat
God help us if this idiot of a woman is ever president. she is nothing but a beauty queen who used her sex appeal to become governor, and every other achievement she received in life.
I hope she goes away, but its going to take a republican (who wants to be president in 2012) to dig up the dirt on her and bring her down.
who is this palin woman again? sounds vaguely familiar....
The Alfalfa Club dinner is in honor of General, Robert E. Lee.But I notice CNN doesnt mention that fact nor will this moderator.
Maybe the bimbo has a date with Michael Steele .
"After the way the media has treated her it's no wonder she's telling them to kiss off!"
Really, how dare they ask her questions about the Bush Doctrine & what shapes her opinions. Nasty mean media.
She must be afraid of how the media broadcasts her mumblings. I say to her: "give it a rest and stop talking". Once she opens her mouth, her credibility disappears.
OF COURSE she hasn't scheduled any media interviews......
She knows every time she opens her yapper, it is comedic fodder for this country better than anything SNL writers could dream up on their BEST DAY!!
No one did more damage to the Republican party other than Dubya than this DOLT!!!
Why is anyone posting any comments. Why is this a News Story? Maybe a glimse into the future?
Legal in NC .....the media have treated her no different than any other vice president candidates the only thing the others were much smarter in politics.It took Katie Couric interview to see just out of sinc she is when it comes to politics.I wish some of you stop making excuses for her ...she is what she is
To "Yikes" & "Ella" .........I was about ready to fall off my chair !!
Thanks for making my day !
I am a life-long Republican, but the very act of selecting this moron to run for the highest office in the land shows me something has gone very, very wrong.
Sarah Palin is the biggest insult to the intelligence of this nation and to the political system we have ever seen.
What on earth were they thinking??
Bush in a skirt. Everything has to be choreographed so we don't think she is a total idiot. The empress has no clothes.
Maybe its time for CNN to steer clear of Palin. She's really not worth the time.
Yeah! Let's start a Democrats for Palin 2012 group. I really think she should be the nominee of the Republican Party the next presidential election.
