FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
When's the last time a losing vice presidential candidate was still in the news a week after the election? Nobody seems interested in interviewing Joe Biden, or for that matter, John McCain. But we just don't seem to be able to get enough of Sarah Palin.
The news media are scrambling to get her thoughts on everything...the campaign, the charges from within the McCain camp that she is a "whack job" and a "rogue," the $150,000 wardrobe, the travel expenses for her family that were charged to taxpayers of the state of Alaska. It's obviously something besides her keen and subtle grasp of the complexities of being president of the United States.
Watch: Cafferty: Interest in Palin?
In fact, her apparent total lack of knowledge of the aforementioned proved to be a handicap to McCain's campaign in the closing stages. A majority of Americans felt Palin was hurting McCain's chances rather than helping them. And yet speculation persists that the Republican Party may decide to hitch its wagon to this hockey mom from Alaska when the 2012 presidential race rolls around.
Here’s my question to you: Why is there still so much interest in Governor Sarah Palin?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Tim from Hot Springs, Arkansas writes:
Because the Republican operatives, on the condition of anonymity, are throwing her under the bus. They built her up as a means of reviving the campaign, only to tear her down upon their defeat. The operatives will be around again in four years if they aren't blamed as the fall guys for the Republicans' failures. She won't be. At this point, she's expendable.
Bamidele from Almaty, Kazakhstan writes:
I think it has something to do with the 57 million and counting, who voted for this ticket. That's scary!
Mark from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma writes:
She is beautiful, articulate and a great people person regardless of what Matt Lauer tries to do to her on the Today Show.
National "rubbernecking." It is like driving by an accident. You don't want to look, but somehow you just can't help it.
Diane from Barneveld, New York writes:
She's Bush in skirts.
There are two reasons: 1) She's attractive. For better or for worse, people listen when pretty girls talk, no matter what nonsense may come out of their mouths. 2) Incompetence, by itself, is not entertaining. However, when the incompetent are supremely self-confident, full of certitude, and absent of insight, it's absolutely compelling.

Jack, they should leave this woman alone. Nobody cares how many countries there are in Ohio.
