Good morning, all - it's been a quiet week in Freeperville, and I thought I would have to do another Putrid Potpourri Edition, when suddenly, a gift from the gods whistled out of the sky and fell into my pond with the resounding smack of a dozen King Logs.
Suit up, and we'll find out what the hubbub is all about!
It's The Great White Mope!
Sarah Palin, could she be ...A huge horselaugh, maybe.

If Sarah is flirting, I was seduced a long time ago! For everyone who doesn't want Romney, this is huge!
It's only in the modern era that Presidential nominations have been locked up before most American voters even tuned in.You need a helmet with a flashing red light and "Hopelessly out of touch" stenciled on it. Most "conservatives" only want to go back to 1956 or so. These yahoos want to go all the way back to 1948 and Thomas Dewey. How did that work out for you guys, by the way?
So this year, for the nation, the Republican Primary is kind of a return to older times, when all Americans counted, not just the few power brokers. The race has been a very rich blue blood from New England ( where he would not carry one state in the general election ) and a group of three, Newt, Rick and Ron scrambling for the 60 plus percent of Republicans who won't be bought!If that means 60% of GOPers who won't be voting, I can live with that
She did not hint towards jumping in now. She hinted that she could be the one to pick in a brokered convention.These bozos are actually "Operation Chaos"ing themselves. God can't love me this much.
But this does provide a ray of hope. It provides one more reason NOT to vote for Romney. But it also provides a reason to go to the polls and vote for anybody other than Romney.
More after the thingy...
It does provide a real reason to be involved. For the grass roots, make your choice from Newt, Rick or Ron but do it and be there on Primary Day. Don't let Romney buy you, or win because of apathy.Ignite, sweet prince!
America does not have one flat tire. We have four flat tires, a blown engine, no battery, and a leaky gas tank where fuel is running ...and may ignite if it hits something electric or hot.
We need someone with a renewed vision of the old America. Yes, the old America. The one that put a man on the moon. The one that on Decemeber 25, 1991 won the half century Cold War liberating 500 million souls in 13 nations! We need the old America that when I was born was unquestionably the wealthiest, most powerful, most successful nation in the entire world. And we need someone who knows why all that happened.Huge revenues from a top marginal tax rate of 90%?
Sarah proved in Alaska she could be an executive. She went against corruption in her own party...and beat the oil companies at the same time! In her third year as governor her approval ratings in Alaska were over eighty percent!!!! 80 percent!You're kinda glossing over what they were after that (and now), aren't you?
A new Alaska Poll released today shows 61% of Alaskans have a "very unfavorable" or "somewhat unfavorable" opinion of Palin, a former governor and the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.Thirty-six percent view Palin positively, according to the survey by Dittman Research and Communications
So... we wait. But now, on the horizon, we see a light. So GOP grass roots, get to the polls, and pick anyone but Mitt!!!Reaction?

First, I seriously doubt she would take nomination. Second, if by some very huge fluke she was nominated over her objection, I more seriously doubt that she could beat Obama.
I love her zeal, and would celebrate her as president - but, we Palin lovers are but a tiny piece of this nations citizenship.

To: 2ndDivisionVetI hear there's a position open at MSNBC.
No, not likely.
You just cannot decide at a moment’s notice decide to run for president, especially after publicly denying she would. If she decided tomorrow to do it, she would not find enough support to accomplish this.
She is either better off to stay at Fox news and give the occasional statement of conservatives ideals or run for the House or Senate.
That has always been my position about her.

To: 2ndDivisionVetWell, this is discouraging.
Amazing she had no time for CPAC the last four years that they’ve asked her and now she does....she’s trying to play kingmaker.
There was a movie out a few years ago with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves called the the Devil’s Advocate where Al Pacino who plays the devil says at the end “Vanity my favorite sin of all.” That’s Sarah she can’t live without the spotlight.

Have the Freeperati finally wised up? Have they, at long last, learned to detect when they're being played?
Actually during her 20 year in politics, Governor Palin earned her reputation as being a strong leader, a reformer, someone who can take on the establishment and beat them
That, or a quitter. It was one of those two things.
Since Palin came on the national scene 3 1/2 years ago, she has helped conservatives her bank account make historical gains.FIFY.
Palin is currently playing an important role in the effort to defeat Mitt Romney.By endorsing Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell.
