As Ed said, Palin doesn't seem to have too much trouble when it comes to disregarding facts. And Ed, she's going to be 'politically relevant' as long as the media keeps propping her up as someone we should pay attention to, but I don't think there's any way in hell she's running for office again. She's going to milk her celebrity for every penny she can squeeze out of it until the day she dies, or she does something so ridiculous that even the right becomes embarrassed about it. That seems to be an impossible threshold to meet for now. Nothing embarrasses these people.
