Now, you have created a special condition. Normally noobs are flamed for writing vanities, then if they don't respond within a short time they are banned. However, you have cleverly written a (completely unoriginal and fawning) vanity praising Governor Palin so you have a built in cheering section that will attack anyone who points out your noob vanity faux pas.
I'm pretty sure you could have found an article about Governor Palin to post your opinion on. She gets mentioned every once in a while around here.
*Seriously, can we get a function added to the software that prevents posting articles until you've made 100 replies? It would eliminate most of the noob nonsense and blog pimps.

You do know - right? - that newbies can’t post a thread without first having a moderator approve it? I don’t know how long this goes on, but ALL newbie threads (vanities, zot threads, legitimate articles, etc) are scrutinized first before publication.
Good post. Notice not one response and this is the first post/thread since signing up yesterday.
Call me skeptical. We’ve seen people come on FR and intentionally start a frenzy of one type or another and dropping Palin’s name usually does the trick as we can see.
The purpose? To gauge reaction. By whom? Who knows who is lurking.

Bloody hell, man. Was all that really necessary? Free Republic isn’t a private club. Please don’t treat it like one. We need and welcome new members.
