PalinLMAO. According to this post by Rasmussen Report, 55% of polled Republicans want to see the party modeled after Gov. Sarah Palin. She inspires something in them. Hope, perhaps.

She had her limelight. Proved she wasn’t an airhead while proving that she was far behind her political cohorts. She sold soaring Rovian rhetoric to her party, but tripped during interviews. Most of all, she lost McCain the election (though, Republicans think she revived them.)

That’s history.

And really, the Rasmussen Report is only confirming what we’ve known about the G.O.P.’s exaltation of Palin.

The more disturbing fact comes later in the post:

Just 15% of Evangelical Christian voters feel that the Republican Party has been too conservative for the past eight years, while 50% think it has been too moderate.

ONLY 15% of that group thinks the G.O.P has been too conservative during the Bush administration. The last 8 years saw the fight against stem cells and intellectual curiosity, the ideological war against the Muslim faith, and the Bush tax cuts. All of that not enough. These Evangelical Christians believe that we did not reach true conservatism. Bollocks.

There’s the answer to the Palin Paradox. She resides on the far-right boundaries of her party, and Evangelical Christians love it. Huckabee, he was good. But he’s too nice. He doesn’t have the same hunger they saw in the savage Palin in the closing weeks of the election.

She has their hearts, which apparently is all they can offer her…

All right, you may be feeling down about not seeing a McCain/Palin administration, but luckily there’s some online erotica to help you feel super happy…er…”happy.” It’s probably the most unexpected…no, I take that back…I’m surprised that I’m just now finding out about this website dedicated to erotic stories about Palin:

The site bids adieu by removing Palin from the oval office and placing a YES WE CAN flyer on the president’s desk. The title of the page is now BarackforPresident.com. Hmm…

When Ralph Nader announced his candidacy for president many pundits said it would be the most irrelevant campaign, citing that Barack’s candidacy was a more realistic representation of Nader’s values. Meaning if you were going to vote Nader, you were probably voting Barack to make a difference.

Well Google Trends shows us that “Ralph Nader” was still a popular search term:

Trends Nader

You’ll notice the huge spike when he announced his candidacy, and then a period of lost interest. But Nader suddenly gains in August. This might be because of his weird ads, including the one about Obama’s missing nuts.

Let’s compare him to the other two stars, Barack and Sarah:

///Barack Obama///

Trends Barack

///Sarah Palin///

Trends Sarah

It’s interesting that we don’t see many people trying to find info on Sarah Palin in general.

Of course, we have huge spikes when the search term is “Palin Couric”:

And this all points to one hypothesis: towards the end of this election, some Americans became very interested in taking a second look at Ralph Nader.
