I apologize that the formal announcement of our 2009 Caffeinated Conservative Award was put on the back burner after our 2009 recipient was informally announced.  Life circumstances, work and timely blog subjects prevented me from posting this sooner.  We had palininwasillaseveral nominated by our contributors for this most coveted prize: Glenn Beck, Congressman Ron Paul (*cough, cough*, thanks Emily), Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Edwin Feulner (of The Heritage Foundation), but one came in on top after you, our readers, had the chance to vote on the nominees.  Former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, was selected by you with 45% of the vote.

Why is she is a worthy recipient?  Let’s consider the following:

She has further defined what it means to be a “common sense conservative,” and has positioned herself to be a voice of the people.  She has proven that she doesn’t need a title to do so.  I don’t know what her future entails.  But 2010 is off to a great start with her new role with Fox News, giving some terrific interviews, and plans for further speeches and stumping for candidates.

Well she isn’t retreating after all, just reloading.
