Number 4 is Sarah Palin.
Her train wreck interviews with NBC's Katie Couric were watched and re-watched millions of times on the internet, cementing the Republican vice-presidential candidate's reputation as a politician out of her depth. Palin's uncomfortable relationship with the web continues; she has threatened to sue bloggers who republish rumours about the state of her marriage.Eeep! Didja hear that, fern hill? Does she mean DAMMIT JANET! do you think? Naw, it's more likely to be The Mudflats. Although .... oh my, I just peeked at our tags and it would appear that DJ! has produced close to 50 blogposts that mention the travellin' freak show that is Palin, her family members, her acolytes and her political sycophants.
Has the internet killed Palin's political career? It's a double-edged sword, really. Even when she has control over the medium AND the message *cough* Death Panels *cough* it only seems to magnify her liabilities. And surely even a narcissist must sometimes get tired of being at the centre of such invasive, overwhelming, non-stop attention?
