Sarah Palin Goes To Washington

Sarah Palin has developed a love/hate relationship with the media.... she talks to them, they cut out half the interviews and bash her, she refuses to talk to them and they bash her, yet despite all the bashing, they continue to seek her out and whine when she doesn't give them even more access to bash her some more.

So, CNN reports Palin has a schedule trip to Washington, but she isn't sceduling any media interviews....

She also announced earlier this week she's making the 4,500-mile trek from Alaska to Washington primarily to attend the Alfalfa Club Dinner Saturday night — an annual closed-door roast of the nation's political elite.

But it's what's missing from Palin's schedule that is causing more than a few heads to turn. In a city that is ground-zero for national political journalists, Palin has not scheduled a single media interview or indicated she will hold a press conference.

When you click the link for eh "full story" it says that many Republicans believe Palin should stay out of the national spotlight while she strengthens her resume and builds her credibility.

"She came into the campaign as the maverick, as the person outside the establishment," Zelizer said. "What she really needs to do now is build her credentials with the establishment. Right now, the goal is not to build her support with the grassroots, it's to build her support inside the beltway."

Whatever the reason for her sudden change of strategy, it shouldn't surprise anyone that eventually she would say enough, get down to her own business and let them get back to their hero worshiping of Obama for the time being.
