What's really scary is that the GOP has gone so retarded/insane, that they'd probably think it would be a good idea.
 
2012-03-07 08:51:44 AM
Ha ha ha!

Because campaigning is too much like actual work for Her Majesty, Queen Sarah.
 
2012-03-07 08:58:46 AM
Since 0bambi HUSSEIN is a secret muslim voodoo unpatriotic gas price raiser, she's already president in exile like that creepy blonde dude on Game of Thrones. You know, the one willing to whore out family to get to his rightful seat of power.
 
2012-03-07 08:59:43 AM
Oh please!

Do it, Sarah, do it!
 
2012-03-07 09:11:55 AM
Insert picture of Beast suggesting Republicans do this action.
 
2012-03-07 09:12:00 AM
I hope she does throw her hat into the ring. It's just a win/win situation for the democrats and Obama, not to mention the sweet, sweet, Daily Show fodder.
 
2012-03-07 09:12:45 AM
And the derp dial just keeps turning up...

Save us queen Sarah!

Seriously, just when I thought this couldn't get lulz-ier.....

The gift that keeps on giving. I would love to see her enter the race. Oh yes.

Let's see. Knock off the First Mormon Candidate who will have at least the strong plurality of pledged delegates if not a majority, for any reasoning short of dead girl/live boy? Would that put Utah and Idaho in play?
 
2012-03-07 09:16:24 AM
better yet run as an independent
 
2012-03-07 09:17:18 AM
I'm scared of a strong conservative woman. I would hate to see her go up against Obama. Please, don't do that. I am afraid. Oh god, no.

/what?

I need to hear more gems from her like:

''Let me go back to a comfortable analogy for me - sports... basketball. I use it because you're naive if you don't see the national full-court press picking away right now: A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket... and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can win.''

Jake Havechek: Ha ha ha!

This alone is why I would like to see this happen. If she pulls this off, the entirety of the top down GOP model collapses. The power brokers could never use their cash or verbal support as leverage again, because it will have been proven that any idiot can get nominated without spending a dime or even trying.
 
2012-03-07 09:19:30 AM
Are there enough delegates up for grabs for her to pull it off?
 
2012-03-07 09:19:32 AM
wink wink, nudge nudge

"Hey guys, this contraception debate is killing us."

Is it because our policy is deeply flawed, based on lies, and filled with hate?

"Nah, that just doesn't add up. It must be our penises!"

We know the solution! GIVE THEM PALIN!

Has anyone been paying attention? This was her plan all along. She's been hanging out right at the edge of the action, hoping for an opportunity to jump in and save America. That opportunity hasn't come, so you'll see her hints becoming more and more obvious. And of course it will be framed as "well, okay America if you insist..."
 
2012-03-07 09:21:07 AM
Thanks John McCain. Thanks.

Aarontology: What's really scary is that the GOP has gone so retarded/insane, that they'd probably think it would be a good idea.


Forget her cartoon persona, now take a moment to let that go. Ok, now just focusing on her positions and "accomplishments" how does she stack up against the other condenders for annihilation? Some what more media savvy than Willard the worlds richest dillatant arborist, somewhat less terrifyingly religious than Rick "cuddle your dead sibling kids, what i've done to your name isn't scarring enough", somewhat more sensible wrt to economics and foreign policy than RON PAUL, somewhat more earnest than Legendary American Hypocrite Newt Gingrich (with a less sordid sexual history). At the very worst she's middle of the pack, and might even be their 2nd best candidate. The GOP's best candidate, as always, is none of the above.
 
2012-03-07 09:21:56 AM
You didn't see this coming? Of course you did. We were expecting this around now.
 
2012-03-07 09:22:13 AM
Between this news and the "Joe the plumber" story, I am pretty entertained this morning. Gods, the wharblegarble will be unprecedented.

Agreed, that's how she operates. Sarah PAC was purposeful.
 
2012-03-07 09:23:04 AM
She's been saying this shiat for months now. All part of the grift. She wants to be able to paint herself as a kingmaker whether she is or not.

She can't handle interviews. Her nonsensical word salads are headache inducing.

To say I want this to happen is an understatement. Hell to say I want this like I want a three way with Selma Hayek and Monica Bellucci while Scarlett Johanssen and Natalie Portman wait their turn is an understatement.

That or her PAC is running low on money to pay for her vacations so she needs a cash infusion.
 
2012-03-07 09:25:01 AM
Oh crap, she's still around? It had been several weeks of bliss without her in the headlines...
 
2012-03-07 09:25:06 AM
Oh please. Even she's not dumb enough to think that'd work. She just feels lonely without the spotlight and PAC money. She had to make some kind of statement to reinterest at least someone in the press.

Dear Mrs. Pailin,

For all that is good and right and just in the universe, I am asking, no, BEGGING that you run for President in this election.

With everything that is happening to the Conservative movement (Rush's problems, the war on women, the war against Muslims, the war against (insert popular Middle Eastern Country here), the war on wars, Davy Jones dying, Liberals not suddenly exploding for some unknown reason, the existence of Ron Paul), I believe you would be a breath of fresh air, bringing dignity and poise to what is otherwise a train wreck of a Republican nomination.

And besides, Letterman's ratings are flagging a little bit, so he needs some good material to work with. We could use the lulz.

Barring that, I'm sure if you do your cure little winkey thing, you could probably get Newt or Romney to get you on the ticket as their biatch. Not Santorum, though. Don't even try with him. Unless you're planning on staying in the kitchen and popping babies out like a Joe the Plumber Pez dispenser.

Thank you. Oh, btw, if you do, in fact, use contraceptives (aside from being vocal during sex), Rush (and many of your adoring male fans) would like to have a word with you concerning a possible career in amateur video.

shiat, Biden ate her lunch in their debate.
Can you imagine the humiliation that Obama would hand her?
 
2012-03-07 09:29:19 AM
I'll say this much. She's one candidate who could overcome the enthusiasm problems they are having. only problem is, she will also energize the opposition again.
 
2012-03-07 09:29:22 AM

smeegle: Are there enough delegates up for grabs for her to pull it off?


Depends on how you define 'up for grabs'.

The 'pledge' process isn't really enforceable in any real sense. The parties are not a part of government. They can make up rules as they go, and you are free to not associate with them if you disagree. Generally candidates, delegates, voters, etc don't even have civil-law contracts with the parties. Delegates can vote as they wish, and the party apparatus may or may not recognize those votes.

Now, as per the parties' standing design, if the first vote doesn't have a majority, pledges are out the window.
 
2012-03-07 09:29:50 AM
Who will she pick for VP? In case she gets tired of being President.

We can only hope Palin's political career ends the same way as Viserys'. It would be very much like apotheosis for the wingnuts.

I don't really see anything so far that says Romney won't take the convention. It's going to be a bloody battle for him to get there, and his narrow win in Ohio doesn't help. Still he has 404 delegates, more than everyone else combined. He also has 41% of the popular vote and the biggest warchest.

Secondly he appears to be on good terms with Ron Paul. So Romney's plan if he fails to hit the needed cap is likely to cut a deal with Paul and get his delegates. Or if Paul doesn't have enough, Gringrich maybe. not sure if he'd deal with Santorum, but you never know.

Every state is going to be a slog, but Romney is likely to emerge from the primary as a winner. A broken, bloody, winner who promptly gets curbed by Obama .
 
2012-03-07 09:31:31 AM
Can you even imagine a Palin Vs. Obama debate? It would be almost worth it. For all of you wishing for this I ask you. What if Obama trips on live TV and accidentally strangles a puppy?

Screwed, that's where.

If McCain had never picked her for veep, she'd still be governor in Alaska and no one south of the Yukon would even know who she is.

You libs are just afraid of a strong, conservative woman. I can't wait to taste your tears in November. I bet they taste like licorice.
