No skulking back to the Alaska governor's mansion for this failed vice-presidential candidate. Sarah Palin quit that job last year for a new career as a conservative media celebrity at large, and has remained in the spotlight ever since. Whether she was anointing a new "mama grizzly" to tweak the Republican establishment, tweeting a nonexistent word, belittling President Obama's "hopey changey stuff" or shooting a moose, no news cycle was complete without the latest from Pundit Palin. Having created name-brand shows on Fox and the Learning Channel while her daughter's improbable turn on Dancing with the Stars kept Brand Palin in the spotlight the former Alaska governor will likely continue to hog the headlines next year with the will-she-or-won't-she cliff-hanger. Even if she doesn't (run for President, that is), she's on track to establish a media footprint worthy of Oprah.
