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 may need to bone up on American history.

The professional celebrity and potential 2012 presidential hopeful stopped by Boston, Mass., on her East Coast bus trip, and there, in the cradle of the Revolutionary War, discussed one of its most notable figures with some locals.

With her unique, folksy charm, Palin said that on Paul Revere's famous ride, he "warned the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms."

Revere, of course, warned the colonists, not their British occupiers. But Palin told Fox News Sunday that she was in fact correct, as there were British soldiers in the area for years before Revere's legendary ride.

He was warning them, as well as his fellow colonists, Sarah Palin says:

"Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there that 'hey, you're not going to take American arms, you're not going to beat our own well-armed persons individual private militia that we have.'"

She blamed her first answer on the "gotcha" media. Obviously.

UPDATE: You almost have to admire the dedication of Palin’s fans ... and you most definitely have to take what you read on Wikipedia with a grain of salt.

They’re apparently trying to edit Paul Revere's Wikipedia page to make it match her botched version of history. Pretty funny/scary stuff right there.

Sarah Palin is busy eating pizza with Donald Trump and fueling rumors of a possible presidential run as she embarks on a bus tour across the eastern U.S.

Among the many people questioning her motives is Stephen Colbert, who questioned last night on The Colbert Report, “Why is this happening!?”

According to Sarah’s website, which Stephen pointed out, the former governor of Alaska is promoting “the fundamental restoration of America.”

Sarah commented that even her youngest daughter, Piper, has been filled with the spirit of their journey, in particular with the work of our first president, George Washington, who worked “so hard to keep his farm running.”

“It’s true,” Colbert agreed. “I cannot imagine how hard he worked with no help other than his African volunteers.” Watch Stephen's full tirade:

In the greatest meeting of political minds since ... you know what, it's not important. But Donald Trump and Sarah Palin met at a pizza joint in NYC yesterday!

Trump loves the former Alaska Governor, too. Mostly because she loves him so much, or so he claims in gushing about his favorite topic (himself) to Fox.

Palin would "love" for Trump to run for president in the next election cycle, he claimed on Fox & Friends this morning. Here's one of his choice quotes:

Trump met Palin during her stop in New York City. The Thrilla From Wasilla kicked off a tour of the eastern U.S. at the Rolling Thunder rally last weekend.

Both big-name Republicans have been talked about as presidential hopefuls, though Trump recently bowed out and Palin doesn't appear interested.

Like Trump, she basks in the attention, but you can get that merely by acting like you might entertain the idea of running, so why actually bother?

In any case, the admiration is mutual. Trump called Sarah Palin a "terrific woman and a terrific friend" who he hoped would seek the GOP nomination.

Someone start printing the Palin-Trump 2012 t-shirts!!

And... Sarah Palin is off!

The former Vice Presidential (and future Presidential?) candidate kicked off a tour of the country yesterday by participating in the annual Rolling Thunder ride-along in Washington, D.C. yesterday.

Sarah Palin in Leather

Donning a black jacket - and asking bikers how they stay cool in leather - Palin hopped aboard a motorcycle (she's just so American!) and joined many others in a ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans' memorial.

Is the Thrilla From Wasilla about to be the ... something from Scottsdale?

Sarah Palin is reportedly purchasing a home in Arizona, reports say, sparking renewed speculation that she's leaving Alaska for "away," a.k.a. the lower 48.

Two local television stations obtained video of what appear to be Todd and Sarah Palin outside the luxurious new digs. The reason for the alleged move?

Insiders have long acknowledged - and continue to do so in conversations - that Arizona would be a perfect place to base a 2012 presidential campaign.

S 2 the P

Distance and flying time make Alaska an impossible hub for such an effort, but regardless of whether she runs, Scottsdale makes sense for other reasons.

The city offers a good launching pad from which to hit the speaking circuit and, eventually, the trail for whichever candidate she backs in the GOP primary.

Daughter Bristol Palin is also set up in nearby Maricopa, where she'll be going to school and filming her new reality show with Kyle Massey and his brother.

So will Sarah really move to AZ - and will she really get in the race? Even her staff seems unsure which way she's leaning. You tell us: Should Palin run?

Frank Bailey, a former member of Sarah Palin's inner circle, has written a scathing tell-all book about the former Alaska governor turned professional celebrity.

Among many other things, he says Palin was ready to quit as governor months before she resigned and was eager to leave office for more lucrative options.

"In 2009 I had the sense if she made it to the White House and I had stayed silent, I could never forgive myself," Frank Bailey told The Associated Press.

Blind Allegiance

Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years, due out Tuesday, is based on thousands of emails Bailey kept during his time with Palin.

It began with working on her 2006 gubernatorial campaign and continued through a failed run for vice president in 2008 and her brief stint as governor.

The Alaska attorney general's office has said it's investigating Bailey's use of emails and whether executive ethics laws bar him from profiting from them.

In any case, Blind Allegiance bolsters the perception of Sarah Palin as self-serving, casting Bailey as her enforcer - doing the dirty work, no questions asked.

With his recent comment that Sarah Palin is profoundly stupid - his words - Chris Matthews is not showing any indications of dialing back his fiery rhetoric.

The host of MSNBC's Hardball took a shot at the ex-Alaska Governor Tuesday while discussing the presidential prospects of another Republican woman.

While talking about Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s shot at the 2012 GOP nod, Matthews was told by a guest analyst not to count out Sarah Palin.

He found that idea laughable, to say the least.

“I think Sarah Palin proved herself to be - I think she’s proven herself to be profoundly stupid,” Matthews said to applause on-location in Los Angeles.

“Her inability to answers the questions of Katie Couric, her inability of even now to explain if she ever reads anything... her absolute failure to begin studying and get serious about running for president,” he continued.

“She has shown no effort to doing any homework or understanding issues about the economy or science or the world. No effort and she’s running for president? I don’t believe she would be at all helpful to our republic.”

Well that leaves clears up where Chris stands. We're not even gonna touch this.

Cue blistering Sarah Palin Twitter response in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ...
