Not unlike when she ran for V.P., Sarah Palin finished second this weekend in an Iowa half-marathon. Unlike the '08 election, though, second place is impressive!

Conveniently vague on whether she's running for president, basking in attention without having to do any real campaigning, she was fully committed to this run.

She finished second among women 40-49 with a respectable time of 1:46.10 in the Storm Lake, Iowa, event. That's just over eight minutes a mile for 13 miles!

Palin Runs

Sarah Palin actually did some legwork!

A tweet from Palin mentioned the run: “Thank you, Storm Lake, Iowa. You put on a great event & we loved meeting some great folks in your beautiful town today!”

She did not announce her intention to run prior to the event, though, and competed under her maiden name, Sarah Heath, listing her residence as Des Moines.

As for whether she'll run for the White House: Should she?

Sarah Palin has not said if she will enter the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, but a growing number of GOP insiders feel she will.

Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove and tea party organizer Peter Singleton are both among the list of people who think she'll be in, and soon.

Rove said on "Fox News Sunday" that he would bet on it.

Oh, You Betcha

"Well, I'm not much of a gambler but the schedule she's got next week in Iowa looks like that of candidate, not celebrity," Rove told host Bret Baier.

Rove noted the video her PAC released Friday, which reaches out to Iowa voters. That video "strikes me as pre-presidential campaign," Rove said.

Palin is planning to speak at the Tea Party of America's "Restoring America" rally in Iowa September 3, which Singleton says could signal her entry.

Sarah Palin is a grandmother again.

This time, it's her eldest son, Track Palin, and his wife Britta who welcomed their first child! Reporter Joe McGinniss, who is writing a book on the former vice presidential candidate, confirmed the news late yesterday.

Track and Britta had a baby girl named Kyla Grace Palin on Sunday night.

Track Palin and Britta Hanson

In May, it was announced that high school sweethearts Track Palin and Britta Hanson had tied the knot. The family never officially confirmed the pregnancy.

Britta was once roommates with Track's younger sister, Bristol Palin, in Anchorage. Bristol welcomed her son, Tripp, around two and a half years ago now.

Track's wife served as an executive secretary in the governor's office at one point, and she is currently a nursing student at the University of Alaska.

Levi Johnston's little sister hates the Palins even more than he does.

Calling out Bristol Palin as "evil" and a "sociopath," a vengeful Mercede tells (her version of) the naked truth ... while posing nude for Playboy. Fitting.

Mercede Johnston, 19, calls Sarah Palin a terrible mother who's "never there for [her children]" and who "doesn't make her kids go to school. She'd rather parade them around and put on a show, at book signings or conventions."

Levi and Mercede Johnston

COMIN' ATCHA! Mercede and Levi Johnston don't mess around!

As for Bristol Palin? "Everything is always about her, her, her. She has to have her own way. She'll be super sweet and then she turns into the most evil person I have ever known ... Honestly, she is the meanest person."

Mercede Johnston adds, "I didn't know someone could be so vindictive and evil ... [She's] a sociopath. She doesn't think anything she could do is wrong."

She also claims Bristol and Levi planned their pregnancy, and drinking made Palin so "promiscuous" that Tripp's paternity was somewhat in question.

Oh, and Track Palin is a drug addict who Sarah made join the army so he wouldn't embarrass her politically. Imagine when the FULL interview comes out!

Levi Johnston has fallen off the radar a bit lately.

Not that we're up in arms about it, just observing. In any event, it looks like his sister, Mercede Johnston, is picking up the Sarah Palin-bashing slack.

In an interview with Playboy, which will feature Mercede Johnston nude next month, choice comments about Levi's almost in-laws are abundant

  • Mercede Johnston Image
  • Mental Breakdown

Asked what kind of president Sarah Palin would be, she responded: "I think she'd have had a mental breakdown ... As governor she quit on us." Burn.

"What does that say about her?" Mercede asked, noting that a majority of residents of Wasilla, Alaska "can't stand Palin ... I would say 70 percent."

Mercede claims the Palins are so polarizing in the town - where Sarah was once mayor, and where Levi is running for mayor - that she can't work.

"It's hard to get a job because of the Palins ... People say, 'Oh, Mercede Johnston, I don't know if people are going to come in if she works here.'"

Regarding Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, Mercede claims Bristol sent a brutal text to her boyfriend after she found out she was pregnant ...

Movie reviews of Stephen K. Bannon's Sarah Palin documentary The Undefeated are about what you'd expect. Not great from the LAME-stream media, with staunch defenders on the other end of the political spectrum.

Aside from being erroneously titled (even if you don't count the 2008 presidential election, Palin lost a 2002 bid for Lt. Governor of Alaska all on her own), the film is essentially a troop-rallying campaign infomercial.

The Undefeated Movie Poster

Or, as the L.A. Times puts it, The Undefeated is nothing short of a "a hero-worshiping, crescendo-edited, thunderously repetitive talking points briefing."

It gets worse from there.

Roll Call calls it: "A flattering portrait of Palin as someone unafraid to take on her own party's bosses. There's little doubt Palin, who did not participate in its  production, will be pleased with the final result. But it's not a good film."

Former Alaska Governor and alleged presidential hopeful Sarah Palin and her family are the subjects of a profile in the September issue of Playboy.

That issue will, naturally, feature a Mercede Johnston nude spread as well.

Killer Sarah Palin Photo

Right next to the profile, in fact. Nothing says positive media coverage like your face alongside the nude sister of your grandson's baby daddy.

Mercede and Sarah: The good old days.

The Palins did not participate in the piece, obviously, but the magazine sent a writer to Alaska to interview locals and friends for their expose.

Playboy sources say Mercede Johnston, 18, is outspoken in the article about Palin and Bristol, who her brother Levi got pregnant back in '08.

Sources say Johnston was paid less than $25,000 to strip down for the magazine, but excess humiliation of the Palins is likely priceless to her.

In the new issue of Newsweek, Sarah Palin says in no uncertain terms that she can win a national election. Of course, she hasn't decided if she'll try to prove it.

"I believe that I can win a national election," she says, adding that she firmly believes Americans are "desperate" and "deserving" of "positive change."

"I'm not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around, but I do believe that I can win."

Palin: I Can Win!

This week's Newsweek cover story on the ex-Alaska Governor comes shortly after the release of the erroneously-titled documentary about her, The Undefeated.

Sarah revealed that her daughter, Bristol Palin, wants her to run for president in 2012, "but we're still thinking about it; I'm still thinking about it," she said.

Palin said the "deal killer" would be if her family told her not to.

Her husband, Todd, says it's "up to her. I mean, we'll discuss it. But she's definitely qualified to run this country. And she's a got a fire in the belly to serve."

Or to tease the possibility of a presidential bid as long as humanly possible, keeping her profile high and ego stroked without actually having to do work.

That's our guess. Especially since Michele Bachmann, who appeals to many in the pro-Palin camp and is arguably more qualified, is already running hard.

What do you think? Should Palin run in '12?

Daughter. Wife. Mother. Warrior.

With a tagline like this, and quotes such as “She’s like a marine. She runs towards the danger,” from rugged-looking citizens, The Undefeated feels more like a big-budget action-adventure blockbuster than a documentary.

Would you expect anything else from a Sarah Palin film?

Of course, The Undefeated is a misnomer, given her losing bid for Lt. Governor of Alaska in 2002, and the GOP ticket that was trounced in 2008. But those are just "gotcha" facts from the liberal "intelligenstia," don'cha know.

The sound and visual effects alone make this an 8.5 out of 10 on the unintentional comedy scale. Watch the lone WASILLA WARRIOR TOPPLE THE MACHINE:

Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are happy to agree on their preferences for low taxes, strong faith and the need for Republicans to take back the White House in 2012.

But there's one area in which the new Presidentual candidate may bristle when compared to the former Vice Presidential nominee: fashion.

In a recent interview, in fact, Bristol Palin said Bachmann has taken the look that her mother popularized, telling Pop Eater: "I think she dresses a lot like my mom. But a lot, a lot of women have done that the last few years. I do think it's odd, you know, seeing people with red blazers with their hair up with glasses."

Compare the style choices of Bachmann and Palin at a recent event and decide: Who looks better?
