Quickest Recovery Since Lazarus;Washington Post Now Sees Palin As "Big Name Potential 2016 GOP Candidate"

Like Mark Twain once said, "the reports of my death have been slight exaggerated" so to has the similar death and media burial of Sarah Palin.

After Palin, voluntarily, decided not to renew her position at Fox news, the leftist media gleefully assigned her to beyond irrelevant and basically politically deceased. Whilst some blatantly lied about it of course, saying that she had been 'fired" by Fox but produced no proof of that assertion whatsoever.

Then came her invite to CPAC and much of the same media that pronounced her gone now, in their chase for readership/eyeballs ran screeds of columns about her "undoubtedly getting a rousing reception, but so did DonaldTrump" as they tried to play the report up whilst, of course, playing it down.

And now the Washington Post, perhaps the leader in the Palin denigration machine amongst the MSM has decided that not only is Palin alive, but she is significant-in contrast to Chris Christie who is "snubbed".

Quite honestly it is hard to keep up with the various leftist scenarios which pick a new villain on an almost daily basis.Ted Cruz being the latest to feel their ire as "the new McCarthy" that being amongst the least of his apparently vile attributes.

Her is  the reference to Palin/Christie from the Washington Post's "Post Politics" column. The Post of course printed the notoriously mistaken column that Palin was going to work for AlJazeera so perhaps this is something of an attempt to make up for that disaster-but I doubt it.

More likely the sharp rise in Palin's favorables polling and the shortening of odds on her being the president in 2016 are more likely to have influenced the media than any misgivings for bad treatment they have given her in the past as per THIS LINK

Christie’s apparent snub comes as most other big-name potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates have been invited and accepted the invitations, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc)
