Quote of the Day II: Palin Counts on Her @ Factor

BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, February 17 2011

I look at those poll numbers and I say if I’m going to do this then obviously I have to get out there... I can’t rely on a liberal leaning press to do that for you. That’s why social media is going to be so important.

-- Ben Smith reports on Sarah Palin's response when asked, during a luncheon appearance before the Long Island Association today, about recent polls in which, as Palin told it, "I get my butt kicked." Palin said that reports in the press have "really misrepresented my record," and contributed to the decline in her popularity. Palin, you might have heard, is a high-impact tweeter who uses Facebook to post often lengthy takes on political news of the day.
