Looking at Tuesday's election result debris, in respect to the Crazy Woman, it is interesting that she was able to keep a real low profile, mostly being limited to probably illegal activities (like the Virginia robocalls) and facebook posts. No huge candidate rallies or - Lord Forbid!! - real life media appearances where somebody might actually ask the Crazy Woman an unscripted question.
Between now and the beginning of heavy 2010 GOP primary campaigning, the CW will be on a "book tour," designed to keep her engaged in friendly or heavily brokered and negotiated appearances, like Oprah. Here's a list of some of her book tour promo appearances:
We’re in the process of arranging interviews with local and national media. An interview with Oprah Winfrey is already scheduled, and I’m also hoping to have the opportunity to talk with Bill O’Reilly, Barbara Walters, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Dennis Miller, Tammy Bruce, and others, including local Alaska personalities Bob & Mark and Eddie Burke.
Gryph has weighed in on how challenging these appearances will not be.
The spate of books about the Crazy Woman or alleged to be authored by her will be coming out on a weekly basis this month. Already, more stories that lengthen the long, long, long list of her lies are appearing, with more on the way with the release of Frank Bailey's book next week.
I've heard from former Crazy Woman staffers that the CW became somewhat fixated on the progressive Alaskan bloggers before she was chosen to be McCain's running mate, and couldn't stop once she was chosen as McCain's VP, or even after she returned to utter failure during the 2009 Alaska legislative session. More conformation on this comes this morning from Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis and The Immoral Minority:
--A growing preoccupation with bloggers: There’s not a lot about why Palin resigned this past summer as Alaska governor after less than a full term, except that it had something to do with “the extent to which she had allowed her critics in Alaska to get to her. The woman who had steadfastly faced down powerful oil companies two years earlier had now become preoccupied with bloggers.
