Even Though The Election Is Over, Sarah Palin Remains A Huge Star On The Internet

Even thought the election is over, interest in Sarah Palin has not.

Sarah Palin continues to dominate search engine queries and online video sites.

There is only one American politician who continues to generate similar traffic on the internet.

That politician is Barack Obama.

Sarah Palin now ranks 4th, just one spot below Barack Obama, on the weekly Lycos 50 list.

A recent YouTube clip that featured her being interviewed while a turkey was slaughtered in the background was YouTube's most viewed clip last week. Palin did not know the turkey was being slaughtered behind her, but most viewers didn't seem to make that distinction.

So why has Sarah Palin remained so interesting for the public?

Interest in John McCain has dropped off the map, so why has that not happened to Palin?

Well, there was just something about Sarah Palin that seemed to capture the imagination of the public. It seemed that almost everyone either loved her or hated her. She truly was one of the most polarizing figures in recent political history.

So will interest in Sarah Palin continue as the months pass by?

Only time will tell.

  1. On Dec 5 the Supreme Court will either allow or disallow the usurpation of both the Constitution and the Government of the United States — easily the most pivotal decision since our nation’s founding — and the silence of the news media is deafening (if not downright scary).
