Len Gutman posted a funny entry on the Valley PR Blog yesterday about the tabloids' latest darling - Gov. Sarah Palin.

I'm not here to talk politics. However, no matter what your political beliefs you have to acknowledge the publicity that this vice presidential hopeful has brought to the GOP - heck, the whole election.

This week Sarah Palin was on the cover of US Weekly, OK!, People and the National Enquirer. To be fair, Sen. Barack Obama has seen his fair share of magazine covers over the past months, but four in one week? Even if some of the press is negative, it still draws more attention to the Republican Party than they otherwise might have gotten.

What I want to know is if they anticipated this much coverage, positive or negative. Surely they timed the baby "scandal" within the week of the convention? Whatever the plan was, it seems to have worked in getting them major amounts of pop culture press coverage.

What do you think?
