Sarah Palin to media: Stop Gossiping About My Kids
ANCHORAGE, Alaska Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is going on the offensive against news organizations and bloggers she says are perpetuating malicious gossip about her and her children. But political observers say the former Republican vice presidential candidate can't have it both ways: trotting out the children to showcase her family values, then trying to shield them from scrutiny.

Palin's criticism also raises questions about her motivations because she has said she is open to a presidential run in 2012.

"I think she's positioning herself. She's attacking the media as a way to generate support among a base she hopes will support her," said Leonard Steinhorn, a professor of communications at American University in Washington and an expert on the presidency.

6. is this actually a current news item? Wow. It sounds like she's stuck in the
general election race when she was actually (well, in an ugly sort of way) relevant.

I feel like this person isn't beyond high-school popularity maneuverings playing dress-up, or playing house, pretending to be an actual qualified politician. Ugh.
