Let’s see if I’ve got this straight. Sarah Palin is often criticized for being a publicity hound and calling attention to herself. But when she doesn’t do something, or stops doing something, that’s big news, too.
So when observers perceived that her bus tour had stopped hurtling forward, it was news.
Just like when she quit the governnorship, right? Except that this time she went back to Alaska because—are you ready?—she was called up for jury duty.
It is hard to believe this was a big story (or, actually, series of stories) yesterday, but it was.
