Highest Rated Show Ever on FoxNews? This Sunday's Sarah Palin Documentary

Well, I'll say one thing.

If she doesn't win the vice presidency, she's going to have the most kick-ass talk show and/or family-oriented sitcom eveh.

Thanks to Daniel.

Was that dismissive? I didn't intend it to be. Obviously I know she's going to be in politics for a while.

I guess my point is that this is a phenomenon unseen since... well, Barack Obama, really. I'm not used to the public actually liking politicians this much. George W. Bush was liked an awful lot by conservatives, but Sarah Palin is inspiring intense affection.

In Hollywood they call it the Q-Rating, the measure of how much he public actually likes you as a person. Obama's Q Rating was (at least for partisans) off the charts. That's what scared me so much about him. I definitely wasn't scared of his keen mind or well-considered policy positions.

But Sarah Palin's Q-rating is not only higher, but it's broader, too.

Obama was beloved by half of he Democratic Party. Palin is beloved by 95% of Republicans, 50% of non-Republican women, and 50% of independent men.
