What Should We Do About Sarah Palin?

When Governor Sarah Palin was selected by John McCain to be his running mate, the progressive blogosphere ran yellow with fear as prominent progressive bloggers and diarists learned about the selection. "Game changer" was the widely used term. When she delivered her venomous, hateful convention speech, some even said she was at least an equal to Hillary Clinton. PUMA's like Geraldine Ferraro rushed in to announce the immenent doom of the Obama campaign. There were wobbly knees everywhere.
But as time passed by, the public got to learn more about all the things I already knew about her. They discovered that she was a right-wing dominionist, born and bred in the heart of Black Helicopter country. They discovered how cozy she is with xenophobic seperatists orgazinations bent on leaving the country. Her pettiness came to light with Troopergate. And this supposedly self-reliant fiscal coservative had no trouble freeloading off other people, whether it be Republican donors or Alaska taxpayers. In other words, she was exposed as a fraud and a joke.
Now that we have prevented her from walking into the West Wing of the White House, it's time to decide what we should do with her. Should bring her governorship down, or should we keep her isolated in the Arctic? You'e thoughts, please.
