Newt Gingrich’s misstep this week was actually a double fault in Sarah Palin's eyes. Not only did he attack his own party's proposal to reshape Medicare, but he did so while appearing on the oh-so-dreaded "lamestream media. " Palin offered her diagnosis on a pair of Fox cable shows Wednesday and used Gingrich's latest woes as an example of why Republican presidential hopefuls should avoid the traditional media.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Republican vice presidential nominee Paul D. Ryan is approaching the biggest moment of his career: his address to the Republican convention and a prime-time national television audience on Wednesday evening at 10 p.m. EDT. If early opinion soundings are correct, his presentation could help sharpen public impressions of the 42-year-old Wisconsin congressman.

"I've never heard that adequately explained so that I could understand [it]

Sarah Palin weighed in on the new Republican presidential ticket and, no surprise, took some hard shots at President Obama ("reckless" spender, "dismal failure.

Sarah Palin feuded bitterly with Senate President and fellow Republican Lyda Green. When Green contacted the governor's office in May 2008 to discuss calling a special session to move stalled legislation, Palin said Green was asking the governor's office to "bail her butt out of the pickle she got herself in.

Introduced amid a pile of newspapers, acting flustered, Palin immediately harkened back to her infamous interview with former “Today” host Katie Couric. “Oh man, she's doing her homework!” current host Matt Lauer joked as the former Alaskan governor then dove into an anecdote about being mistaken for Tina Fey, known for her pitch-perfect impersonations of Palin on “Saturday Night Live” during the 2008 election cycle.

But that should hardly be a barrier. Mama Grizz has a way of pawing into the limelight.

The political pros at her SarahPac have already rented space at a mall a mere five-minute walk from the convention center where the GOP regulars will gather.
