Palin Plays Hard to Get and It's Driving the Press Crazy

I don't know what Sarah Palin is up to, but I'll bet she's having a good time:
Sarah Palin pulled a clever bait and switch on reporters in Gettysburg on Tuesday, as her "One Nation" bus tour rolls into its third day.

The Palin family and a few members of her staff snuck out of their hotel early, leaving their flashy bus behind in the hotel parking lot to give reporters chasing her the impression that she was still readying for the day.

As members of Palin's advance staff began to roll out luggage to the bus on Tuesday morning, a crush of media and tourists gathered to meet the potential presidential candidate on her way out of the hotel.

But CNN was soon tipped off that Palin was long gone, off to visit the Civil War battlefields and onward toward Philadelphia.
And from Politico yesterday:
Day 2 of Sarah Palin’s bus tour, and the former vice presidential nominee has prompted little more than confusion over exactly what she is up to.

Palin started Memorial Day at the National Archives in Washington after unannounced visits to monuments and other landmarks in the nation’s capital on Sunday afternoon, following a brief ride at the annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally. From there, it was to George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon, where reporters following Palin were able only to snap pictures of the former Alaska governor from a distance.
While most politicians run to every camera they can find and crave press attention, Palin seems to be turning the tables and making the press crave HER attention. It's hilarious to watch.

I'm almost hoping this whole bus tour is just a big tweak of the mainstream media.

Why is the news media giving Sarah such extensive news coverage? She has not announced she is running for president, she is just seeking publicity, looking for ways to cash in. Forget her and stop all this news coverage.

I got my recliner and a really BIG supply of popcorn ready. Got a smile on my face. Got my "Hog Heaven" sign on my door.

I think they're hounding her because any 'journalist' who catches her doing something that might bring her to ruin can ride that accomplishment for the rest of their lives.

Of all the people the media would love to remove from the political scene, she's probably #2 -right behind Limbaugh. And any photo of her in an embearassing moment, or a sound-bite of her saying something that might be interpreted as vulgar or biggoted or derogatory towards a protected group, will make that member of the media a hero.

Obama has his own agenda as do I and everyone who has a position on anything. Just remember there a few heros left, and even those I don't completely trust.
Thats why I am a constitutionalist, and I believe its the only way to go.
It solves so many issues, along with free market ideals.
