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.

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."

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:

Jon Stewart defending Sarah Palin is not something you see every day, but the media's obsession with her old emails necessitated a Daily Show rant.

In a segment called "P-mail," Stewart ripped the press for providing "full team coverage" of the arbitrary release date of Palin's non-urgent messages.

Stewart notes, accurately, that the media harps on Palin for a sense of inflated self-importance, yet behavior like this contributes directly to it ...

It is absurd, really. At this point, all the classic Sarah Palin moments have been found and scrutinized to no end. What did they expect to discover?!

"For some reason, the media went DEFCON 1," Stewart said, rolling clips of news outlets disappointed by an apparent lack of any major scandals.

In one segment, CNN describes an email from someone complaining, "Palin was spotted with Trig in a car not wearing an approved car seat."

"That story better end with Palin getting out of the car and beating the woman with a tire iron," Stewart said. "Otherwise, why waste our time?"

Seriously. She resigned two years ago and is not running for office now. Let it go ... or at least start digging through Michele Bachmann emails.

Sarah Palin has given us so many memorable moments over the years.

Undeniably, her every move is scrutinized and picked apart like no other politician in history. But just as undeniably, she brings these things upon herself.

With Alaska releasing thousands of emails from Sarah Palin's brief stint as governor, we can only imagine what revelations lie in store in those reams of paper, and where they will rank on the list of Sarah Palin's greatest hits.

Sarah Palin uses crib notes on her hand in February 2010.

From her 2008 campaign interview with Katie Couric to her pardoning a turkey, then preening for the cameras as others are slaughtered in the background, you just never know what you're going to get with Palin.

Recently, her rendition of Paul Revere's ride added another historic chapter to her resume. An inaccurate one, it turned out, but we laughed a lot.

What was your favorite moment since she burst on the scene? Take a look back at some epic Sarah Palin videos from the last three years and decide:

The state of Alaska will release thousands of Sarah Palin's emails from her half term as governor, a disclosure that has taken on national prominence due to the media's obsession with her and Palin's potential presidential run.

More than 24,000 pages of Palin emails will be made public in paper form only in Alaska's capital city, Juneau, which is accessible by only air or water.

Yes, Alaska is a real state.

Sarah Palin Shaking Hands

Reporters from several news organizations have already begun arriving and are making various plans to disseminate the emails to the public.

Palin told Fox News Sunday that "every rock" that could have possibly been kicked over to uncover things in her family already has been.

However, "a lot of those emails obviously weren't meant for public consumption" and that people might seek to take some "out of context."

Like the coverup to hide the pregnancy of Bristol Palin and claim the baby was Sarah's own? Just kidding. That was a great rumor, though.

You gotta hand it to Tina Fey. Her impression of former politician and current celebrity Sarah Palin is so good, Fox News can't even tell them apart.

Reporting on Palin's heavily hyped One Nation bus tour, the channel actually used a photo of the 30 Rock star impersonating her in a faux debate.

Maybe they just prefer to look at Tina? Doubtful. Way to go, guys. As if this weren't absurd enough, Palin herself is a contributor to the network!

We haven't seen a move this boneheaded on camera since somebody claimed Paul Revere warned the British instead of the colonists ...

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
