To attack a person for his or her conservative values by focusing an inordinate amount of attention on a single example of that person falling short (or being perceived as falling short) of the values they espouse. The term is derived from excessive criticism of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin by the mainstream media and other public figures after it was learned that Palin's unwed teenage daughter was pregnant.
Person 1: Dude, have you checked out that Carrie Prejean "nude" pic? There's barely even any side-boob going on there. She showed more skin at the pageant itself!
Person 2: Yeah, you just knew they were gonna Palinize her after that Miss USA thing where she said she didn't support gay marriage.
