Just Like Dr. Pepper, So Misunderstood: Battle Royale!

Kids, in Part I and Part II of this series, we explored the actions of Princess Sarah, before, during, and after her bid for for the vice-presidency.
From Top News:

Even though reports of agitation between the McCain and Palin camps bubbled up in the final weeks of the campaign, as Barack Obama began pulling away and the GOP duo was unable to regain the momentum, when the defeated team of McCain and Palin split up in Arizona on Wednesday, the personal differences were starkly visible.

Various press accounts suggest that Palin rubbed many of the McCain aides the wrong way. The most recent one, according to published reports, was the election night incident when Palin irked McCain aides saying she wished to make her own concession speech, other than McCain’s.

…snip…

Political scientists said the ordinarily moderate Mr McCain had pandered too heavily to the religious right, reversing his earlier positions on ethical issues such as abortion and choosing Sarah Palin, a Pentecostal Christian, as his running mate.

Just Like Dr. Pepper, So Misunderstood!

From Politico:

After enduring three days of brutal postmortem attacks, Sarah Palin and a group of Republicans who worked with her during the presidential race are pushing back hard against claims that she was a “diva” who helped tank John McCain’s campaign.

“I never asked for anything more than a Diet Dr Pepper once in a while,” Palin told reporters as she returned to the governor’s office Friday.

It’s true! Princess Sarah is still the same sweet undemanding girl she always was, as Miss Wasilla….
