59 Percent: Palin Can’t Be President

Yes, it’s a silly poll.  Maybe all polls are.  But it gives me hope that Republicans really could nominate her.

Sarah Palin may be on a hot streak with her congressional endorsements, but 59 percent of Americans think Sarah Palin is not fit to be president of the United States, according to a new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll. Meanwhile, 26 percent say they think she would be an effective commander-in-chief. The poll also shows Republicans splitting 47-40 on the question of whether Palin can lead the country.

Will Republicans continue to employ their litmus tests, ignore who might be electable, and nominate the person who passes all their tests on ‘conservative enough?’

Run Sarah Run, See Sarah Run

This newly released SarahPAC video has already had almost 400,000 views.  As of June 30, SarahPAC had more than $1 million cash on hand.  It all hints that Palin plans to run for POTUS in 2012.

She stands a good chance of winning the nomination of the GOP.  Can she win the general election?  If she decides to run and doesn’t win the nomination, will her fervent fans support another nominee?  If Palin runs, wins the nomination and then loses the general election, she could leave the Republican brand in pieces.

If Palin is smarter than she is ambitious, she will not run in 2012 — she has fame, fortune, and multiple platforms to leverage for years to come.  Who wants to speculate on whether she is more ambitious than smart?

Palin, the TV star

Coming soon to a television near you: Variety reports that Sarah Palin is near a deal for her TV project about Alaska, which Mark Burnett will produce. A&E and Discovery are the front-runners for the show, which is expected to cost about $1 million per episode. Variety says the show “will center on interesting characters, traditions, and attractions in the 49th state—with the ex-VP candidate as guide.” Palin and Burnett pitched the show to the four major networks, before moving on to cable. A decision could be made in the next day or two.

The ex-nearly-half-a-term governor may have found her cash cow!

Matthews: Palin is ‘Frightening’

A Gallup poll found that more Republicans wanted Palin to run for president than any other potential candidate. If she’s serious about seeking the presidency, here’s what Palin needs to do now according to Matt Latimer, a former Bush aide.

GOP leaders may turn up their noses at Sarah Barracuda, but Palin could easily be the Republican nominee in 2012.

Can’t they just be appointed?

An actual election isn’t necessary, is it?  Can’t the beauty queen and the centerfold simply take over as president and vice president?  They can decide who gets which office between them, or maybe they’ll rotate on a yet to be determined schedule.

What we do know for absolutely sure at this point is that when Brown won his Senate seat in Massachusetts that win had national importance that went far beyond simply winning a single seat in a single race!  🙂  At least that’s what everyone is telling us, so it must be true!
