by Blue | The other governors present barely got a look-in, and great was the barely-concealed sullenness as a result. She is so going to be their party's next presidential nominee. Princess Sparkle Pony has an excellent picture of them all looking disgruntled.
And, indeed, she just totally hijacked the press conference, the entire event, really, and the other people do look totally, totally pissed! Sarah! This is not the way to make friends! But honestly, how dare they! They should have had their own dumb press conference. But the hilarious truth is that if they had, all the questions would have totally been, all, "Where's Sarah? What do you think of Sarah?" Haw, they are SO stuck with her now. Hey, Republicans, Sarah Palin ate your party! (PSP)

As we all know, there isn’t a gub’nor or senator in the land who doesn’t stand before the mirror every morning as they straighten their red (or blue) “power ties” muttering to themselves, “Hello, Mr. (or Ms.) President.” over and over as they try to make “presidential” faces to themselves just before heading off to
workcommit their high crimes and misdemeanors against America…
According to CNN’s Political Ticker, their official wrap-up Press conference at the GOP Gubo-Nator’s Associated was filled with muffled sobs and sniffles as the reporters focused almost SOLELY upon the only governor in the land who is able to say she “can see Russia and Canada from her dining room window..."
Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! So true.
But they had better do a better job of concealing their disappointment and fury if they expect make Palin's short list of potential running mate.
[Y]ou simply must read J-Mart's amusing write-up of the event at Politico, where Palin's rivals are barely, barely able to conceal their hatred.
All righty then. J-Mart, also known as Jonathan Martin, says:
A portion of the hotel’s second floor was curtained off to allow CNN’s Wolf Blitzer to interview Palin and broadcast his show with a Biscayne Bay backdrop. And throughout both days, reporters and other onlookers kept a watchful eye in the lobby, hoping to catch the Alaska governor in person.
The Thursday press conference featuring Palin drew 23 cameras into a ballroom — more than the total number of reporters who met two other governors and two potential gubernatorial candidates in a small meeting room on Wednesday.
And even though she was joined by many of her other GOP governors, the four questions that were allowed during Thursday’s sub-10 minute press conference were all aimed at Palin — leaving her colleagues to awkwardly and silently stand behind her as though they were there present to lend her their endorsement....
Again----check out the photograph! It's true. Look at the balled-up fists and truculent expression of Whatshisname standing right next to her.
While the governors were publicly polite, their aides, advisers and other Republicans here at this tropical networking and strategy session looked on at the Palin spectacle with a mix of bemusement, curiosity and annoyance.
“She’s our Britney Spears,” one veteran Republican, who is close to a prospective future presidential rival of Palin, observed after hearing her speak. “It’s just this cult of personality.” (Politico)
PSP: "God, how much better is this going to get?"
