The etimology of “Palin”

Palin: n:

1. An applicant lacking even basic job skills.

2. Someone supremely un-self-aware or lacking any relative sense of what s/he does or doesn’t know.

HR sent me another Palin for the marketing manager job.

Derived from Sarah Palin, Gov. of Alaska, picked to be Senator John McCain’s running mate in an unsuccessful bid for the White House in 2008. Sarah Palin instantly rose to national prominance, only to plummet just as quickly when she gave her first nationally televised interview, revealing near-total ignorance of the most basic political subjects and issues of the campaign.
