Someone that supports Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as a vice-presidential candidate in the November 2008 Presidential Elections. Palin has been heavily criticized because of her lack of experience and her own label of "hockey mom." She has also been scrutinized for her "BS" responses, referring to her essentially substance-less responses during the Vice-Presidential debate and various interviews. Her status as vice-president is significant because of her running mate John McCain's old age and the possibility of him passing away in office.
Palinists don't really have that much sense since Sarah Palin was only picked to further John McCain's attempt to reach out and gain the support of woman voters.
Pejorative term originally used to describe any supporter of former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. Although originally used by the political left to describe someone with narrow yet oxymoronically undefinable views, the word has since become a blanket term for 'idiot' used by both the political left and right.
