Newsweek's Desperate Plea For Attention: Yet Another Palin Cover

The gasping-for-breath Newsweek magazine, which grossed out the entire world with a cover story last month picturing a zombie Lady Diana with her daughter in law Kate, is once again playing the sensationalist card with yet another Sarah Palin cover story.

"I Can Win" she shouts in the headline, despite the fact that any imbecile knows nothing could be further from the truth.

MSNBC commentator Lawrence O'Donnell called the Newsweek piece "adoring," deeming it a "desperate, pathetic and absurdist" puff piece, citing polls that show "she's the most unpopular politician in America" and insisting that Republicans know better than to let her represent the party, much less run for the presidency.

Newsweek cites a poll saying that Palin has an 80% approval rating. In truth, the stat comes from an Alaskan poll when Palin was governor, long before she was the Vice Presidential candidate for John McCain.

O'Donnell concludes, "Sarah Palin is never going to run for president or any other elected office. She has discovered the joys of responsibility-free celebrity and the millions in income that are hers through deft management of that celebrity."

This makes the fifth time the magazine has inexplicably put the dimwit on its cover. No wonder this ship is sinking faster than a manual typewriter.
