Centre of the media universe or

... political black hole? You decide.

[...]Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank's [made a] widely circulated pledge not to write anything about her for the whole of February.

Milbank wrote that, since Palin did not hold political office and had become "more like Ann Coulter," he would try to ease his "obsession" with writing about her, or mentioning her in any media appearance, for a month.

Speaking at a meeting of the Safari Club, a hunting organization, Palin apparently said that was fine with her. The boycott, she said, "sounds good, because there's a lot of chaos in Cairo, and I can't wait to not get blamed for it--at least for a month."

Palin became a focal point during the discussions on rhetoric and civility in the wake of the Arizona shooting; people accused her of having soured the national discourse through her use of phrases such as "don't retreat, reload!"

From here.

Hey Sarah, has anyone in your family or entourage of sycophants ever told that it's not all about you?

The last word goes to comic John Fugelsang.
