    I dunno. I bet she's a fund-raising machine. What if every Sarah lover decided to ignore the wishes of the party and vote for whomever they wanted?

    What if she becomes a third-party candidate, like the tea bag party or something?

    It's true that I don't think she could win the whole presidency.

    Ugh. I used to think it would be fun to watch her run but now I think it would just give me a huge knot of anxiety in my stomach.

    Palin won't win the presidency, but she has a real shot at winning the nomination. Right now, Palin is the face of the Republican Party
    and she's the only Republican that actually has a reasonably solid base of support nationwide. And I read that among Independents, around 35% of them have a favorable view of her.

    All of the other so-called Republican contenders have either fallen by the wayside because of scandal or they're being seen as RINO's and getting pushed out of the Party by the teabaggers. Unless another Republican star shows up, Palin is it.

    I agree. She's got this crazy, unthinking base that are kind of rabid and really get off on her talk of 'revolution'. I think they'll quietly discredit her by leaking all kinds of stuff to the press.

    I never thought someone could make George Bush look good when it came to public speaking. She is one of the worst I have ever listened to. She emphasizes all the wrong words and pauses when there aren't supposed to be pauses. My god...it was painful to listen to.

    Dailykos/Research 2000 ran a poll of self-identified Republicans: most of them think Palin is better qualified to be President than Obama.

    Their base loves their Sarah.

    What if she becomes a third-party candidate, like the tea bag party or something?
    Obama might win all fifty then.

    I hope she does get the republican nomination. It will be a comedy goldmine.

    Here's a fun op-ed on her delusions of grandeur and thinking she could possibly be POTUS:

    Now Sarah Palin comes right out and says it, that she really is thinking about running for President in 2012. She says it in the same starry-eyed way kids talk about growing up to be astronauts, but actually seems to believe it, that somehow she can go from being this kind of pinup girl for her Tea Party friends to the White House.

    "I think it would be absurd to not consider what it is that I can potentially do to help our country," Palin told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."

    Now there are many, many ways Sarah Palin could help this country. Running for President will never be one of them. You listen to her long enough and actually feel yourself getting dimmer by the minute, like a dying light bulb.

    If her vision and grasp of even the most basic issues - with or without cribnotes - were any lighter, you would have to tie a rock to her to keep her from floating away.

    She imagines herself as some big, conservative, independent thinker. When she doesn't like Rahm Emanuel, the President's chief of staff, using the word "retards" to describe liberal groups, she says Emanuel should be fired.

    Then her buddy Rush Limbaugh comes out and says, "Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult's taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards."

    Chris Wallace asked her about that Sunday, and Palin practically wrestled herself to the ground so she didn't make Limbaugh - who seems to take her seriously - mad at her. What Palin tried looked trickier than some yoga positions.

    Palin: "Rush Limbaugh was using satire."

    No, he wasn't. If Palin believes that, she really is more limited, and bubble-headed, than Paris Hilton. If not, she is simply a transparent phony.

    In so many ways, Palin has become the great old line from the movie "All About Eve," the one about the piano thinking it wrote the concerto.

    "How's that hope-y, change-y thing workin' out for ya," she said in this lame, singsong way in Nashville, thinking she was being funny. No. Tina Fey - playing Palin on "Saturday Night Live" - was funny. No matter how hard she tries to be taken seriously, Palin is a joke.

    Sunday was another day for her, this time on Sunday morning talk shows, when the idea of trying to parse her sentences, and thoughts, seemed more complicated than the "Da Vinci Code."

    Maybe she would have done better with Wallace if she'd written down talking points on herhand, the way she did at that Tea Party convention, the superpatriot version of Halloween in the Village.

    Rookie football quarterbacks do the same thing, by the way, write things down on their wrists, when they don't know all the plays.

    Anybody can bring notes to a speech, no crime in that, no disgrace. But if you're going to mock President Obama for using a TelePrompTer, you sort of can't let a Huffington Post blogger see "Energy" and "Tax Cuts" and "Lift American Spirits" written on the palm of your left hand, no matter how hard it is to remember tricky concepts like those.

    The good news? Only one crossout!

    Palin probably did the same thing with the word "maverick" during her talking hairdo campaign to be vice president, "maverick" being pretty much her whole act. The very best news of the weekend? It's now official that she can fit her entire political philosophy in the palm of her hand.

    She thinks she is some kind of dream candidate for her party when the truth is that Palin is only a dream candidate for the other party.

    All her friends on the right, the ones who treat her like a hot version of Margaret Thatcher, are afraid to say that. Or call her out for being the lightweight that she is, same as she was afraid to call out Limbaugh. So they all deserve one another.

    Here is something else Sarah Palin said about her future presidential ambitions.

    "I won't close the door that perhaps could be open for me in the future," Palin said.

    She will discover - Democrats sure hope it is later rather than sooner - that the only door to worry about is the one that will hit her on

    Great piece. Too bad is too difficult to comprehend for Repugs and Tea Party idiots in particular.

    She blasts Obama for using a teleprompter, but then writes buzz words and phrases on her palm. She really is the gift that keeps on giving. 2012 should be a fun campaign.

    Obama needs to arrive at his next speech/press conference with shit written on his left palm just to throw people off. When magnified, it would read "butter, baloney, vodka, toilet paper, fried chicken". Then on the other palm, write in really large print "GOTCHA!"
