The return of Sarah Palin

(CNN) – The Republican establishment can't stand her. The media mocks her. But Sarah Palin isn't going anywhere.

Far from it.

After laying low for much of this year, Palin is gingerly stepping back into the public arena with a national book tour, a trip to the always-important political state of Iowa, and an eye on making yet another series of splashy endorsements in a variety of competitive Republican primaries.

    Her endorsements may help Tea Queda jihadists win their primaries, but that's as far as it will go. The politically ignorant on the right are a bunch of brainwashed racists. And who better to fan the flames of hate and racism than Sarah Palin.

    If the media would stop giving this nobody so much undeserved attention, she WOULD go away.

    "Democrats welcomed polarizing Palin to Garden State"

    Yep. I would not be surprised if Palin's endorsement cost Lonegan about 3 points in the election.

    So: can I expect long, loving articles about LIBERAL potential candidates as we bear down on the Presidential cycle? Sorry, CNN, Hillary does not count.

    @Malory Archer,

    "If the media would stop giving this nobody so much undeserved attention, she WOULD go away."

    Yeah well, Peter Hanby is well known for these long love letters to Sarah. Expect a few more pieces like this on the Ticker before everyone realizes she's just scamming the rubes for more vacation caysh.

    Please. A simple case of the disease taking over the host. She's a parasite, attracting other parasitic microbes. It's like a common cold. Everyone has the germs within, and sometimes come into contact with more germs than the body can handle, When this happens the host starts to mechanize against the invaders. As the war begins the body gets weak and the host starts to feel the effects of the illness coming on. She's the mass of germs this country can live without.

    Palin and Cruz are leading republicans around by their noses. The once proud party of Eisenhower is now a bunch of tea bagging domestic terrorists.

    Republicans and the Tea Party have thier own caste system to root out pseudo-conservatives. Pseudo-conservatives usually are not sucessfull and they know it.

    @Jeff Frank,

    "Republicans and the Tea Party have thier own caste system to root out pseudo-conservatives."

    Fascinating. Explain. Is Sarah Palin one of the rooter-outers?

    LOL – love this headline : "The return of Sarah Palin" guess u could call it, "In Ted Cruz form" lol
    Eisenhower is probably rolling in his grave, by people like this ruining his once Grand Old Party...it's a shame.
    Best President we've had in the last 50 yrs.......too bad it had to come this way....but, I guess it IS, what it IS....

    Please media, can't you do your job properly as it should be? I believe you understand more than a normal civilian do. You understand that she sells garbages and in return make her pocket full. You know that some are always carried away to any direction where the wind blows to, still you give this woman free advertisement without thinking first who benefits! You are not educating, you are not doing any favor to those who believe you are always there to help them understand things. May ask you all: What are you doing?

    The Republican Tea Party has become a "cult" like organization with leaders like Palin Cruz, and Paul.

    "But Sarah Palin isn't going anywhere."

    And then there is also the very idea that too this person doesn't deserve the admitted fascination CNN has with her.

    Doesn't matter whether you like her or don't like her. She has common sense, about a great many things, and she will remain a moving political force.

    Guess they have to after all the pics of Sibelius and Hillary that seem to send the righties over a cliff. Has any of the GOPers done their "Benghazi/ Fast and Furious" mantra yet this morning, or are they still getting their marching orders from Uncle Rupert's Propaganda network?

    They are indeed, and nobody in the GOP appears to be too concerned about that.
    What's that about?

    The Queen of the clown show – best thing for the Democrats is to have her keep getting attention. You would think people would catch-on to her. She quit on Alaska and helped McCain to lose in 2008.

    Fact : Many Americans called themselves “fiscal conservative social liberal”
    Palin and Ted Cruz are focusing on anti abortion, pro guns, anti immigration anti gay etc..

    We have to liberate GOP from Palin, and Cruz

    I was thought Rick McD was kind of touched, but him saying Caribou Barbie has common sense solidifies it.

    The woman doesn't have the common sense of a road lizard. No offense to road lizards.

    I agree she doesn't matter. But, here we are 6 years later and John McCain is still running from one news network to another trying to wash Palin's stench off himself, his party, and those he dragged into supporting her on his ticket.

    Palin has a new book coming out so no surprise seeing her . Looks like she has had a little work done too. Cruz always wants the publicity. Sad when these two get so much publicty when neither one have done anything memorable to warrant it
