Get ready for Sarah Palin to hit the campaign trail again. The Alaska governor has just launched her own political action committee, SarahPAC.

SarahPAC, like most politicians' political action committees, presents itself as not existing almost entirely for its namesake's benefit. Most of these PACs are indeed created for that purpose, though, and this one will likely be no different. In fact, as legendary gossip columnist Cindy Adams -- who broke the story -- notes, the name of this particular committee is reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's HillPAC.
