Like her. Hate her. That matters not to me.
But I do care if you take Sarah Palin seriously. This article will reinforce your opinion of her -- a shallow, manipulative individual with charisma and no substance; or a determined maverick doing the right thing for America.
Have fun coming up with the middle ground necessary to have a serious conversation about the merits of this woman as a presidential candidate.
My opinion, for what it's worth, is that Ms. Palin is doing exactly what she wants to do -- raise a little heck and a lot of cash, and mostly for herself.
There's nothing wrong with that. This is America, where even the most shallow can appear on reality television in an attempt to strike it big.
