Celebrity of the Year Finalist #7: Sarah Palin!

by at . Comments

With 2010 drawing to a close, it is with much pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, Fourth Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars all gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness.

Following Lindsay Lohan checking in at #8 after checking into rehab eight times, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #7 ... Sarah Palin!

Sarah Palin and her equally-entertaining offspring.

It's hard to believe that two years ago, someone on THG's Celebrity of the Year countdown was nominated for Vice President of the United States.

Sarah Palin treats convention like she does the English language, though. Since resigning as Alaska Governor last summer, she's gone on to, uhh ... hmm.

Become a professional celebrity? Tough to put your finger on, but she's certainly not a political figure anymore. Political figures advocate for policy and progress.

Sarah Palin advocates for Sarah Palin. Relentlessly.

With the exception of PETA and Speidi, no organization is as persistently shameless in pursuit of attention, controversy and headlines than Sarah Palin Inc.

She's great at what she does. Whether you abhor or adhere to her conservative ideals, you gotta give her that ... and be glad she no longer holds office.

Some Sarah highlights from 2010 include:

  • Inventing the word refudiate
  • Using crib notes in speeches
  • Calling out Family Guy
  • Criticizing American Idol stars
  • Wrote a book, apparently
  • Getting a reality show on TLC
  • Shooting caribou on television
  • Going camping with Kate Gosselin

Yup, it's been a busy year. Her kids got in on the act as well. Bristol Palin made it to the finals on Dancing With the Stars, briefly got engaged a second time to Levi Johnston, filmed an abstinence PSA with The Situation and so on.

Even Willow Palin, Bristol's younger sister, got people all riled up with a homophobic Facebook rant at some dude who said Sarah Palin's Alaska was failing so hard.

Do the fierce lil' grizzly cubs stick up for their mama? You betcha, and more power to 'em. Here's a photo tribute to a woman like no other in this great country ...

Why all the criticism of Sarah Palin??...could this be a "persecution" of a wise, extremely attractive,intelligent, uninhibited,"balanced", woman, who is unafraid to speak what she believes is "the Truth"..wielding the sword of justice and right...most likely based on the Word of God, for which all "standards of behavior" will be judged...Bush seemed to be disliked by many, ....He was a Bible Believer, also...Wake up, America!!! "Be not deceived!!!...God is not mocked...whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap!" PEACE AND GOODWILL TO ALL MEN!

Can't imagine Sarah Palin being on anyone's list but a hate list-- yes! And quite so. Latest poll out today is that her numbers have dropped even more.
this woman is a disgrace to America! She is a hater, a divider of our country.
