By Jan Rogers,
It’s not original with me to say that politics and showbiz are closely linked. How close the two are is brought home in Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann. Both began as overnight sensations and in both cases the act was new, novel and electrifying. In politics and showbiz, depending upon just how much substance there is, the act either endures or wears thin and the public tires of it. For both Palin and Bachmann the glow has definitely dimmed.
