Memorial Day brings out presidential hopefuls

(CNN) - Politicians will be in plentiful supply this Memorial Day as the ramp-up to the 2012 presidential election begins in earnest.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who began a nationwide bus tour Sunday, generated plenty of buzz by riding into Washington on the back of a motorcycle. The Republican is believed to be considering a White House bid, but has not announced her intentions.

    The new Biker Bimbo Barbie look is just repulsive. She only did this gig to get more publicity, not to honor war heroes. It's like watching someone run a hundred miles a hour toward the edge of a cliff – you don't want to see the results when they go over the side, but you can't take your eyes off the spectacle. She's setting herself up for a huge fall, and it's only going to be her own fault.
