The real reason Sarah Palin is still around [Letter]

Susan Reimer's recent column regarding Sarah Palin was spot on and laugh-out-loud hilarious ("Sarah Palin: the gift that keeps on giving," Nov.13). I did feel that she left out the true reason that this political and intellectual lightweight is still around, or as Ms. Reimer so eloquently puts it, is the "gift that keeps on giving." And that reason is that she is a very, very attractive women with all the right physical attributes: great figure, pretty hair, beautiful eyes and white teeth combined with a winning smile!

Let's face it, the media does love a pretty package. If she were a frumpy, overweight, nondescript woman, would we still be seeing her or reading about her six years after Sen. John McCain selected her as his running mate? But then again, if she was all of that, would the senator have chosen her in the first place?
