Whatever happened to Sarah Palin? She's been amazingly quiet the past month or so. Has her time passed? Was she just brief comet that whizzed by in a shower of publicity and smashed into the sun? Has she abandoned her absurd presidential ambitions and holed up in her igloo for the duration?
Not on your life. She's got campaign advisers now, and apparently the first thing they told her was to get herself some gravitas. So she's been junketing around Israel and India for the past couple of weeks, carefully not making an ass out of herself.
Israel and India are smart choices because both countries had strong women as prime ministers, Golda Meir and Indira Gandhi. But Palin is neither Meir nor Gandhi. She's more like Lindsay Lohan.
