Yes, there is some nice end of world action footage, and a half clever SNL Spoof of this and Palin; but catch the assertion here that "Palin is not really a political figure."
She just ran for Vice President. She was just governor of a State. She is constantly talked about in mainstream media political discussions. She is considered one of a handful of frontrunners of the GOP Political Party. She addresses policy and political issues publicly. She just wrote a book which is about her and politics.
But she's "not really a political figure." Of course not.
