One is tempted to wonder if the Left wasn’t more disappointed than the Right by Sarah Palin’s demurring from diving into the nomination meat grinder. Geoffrey Dunn, at the Puffington Host:
Anyone who has watched Sarah Palin closely in recent months can only marvel at the “magical thinking” she embraces with respect to the potential outcome of the Republican Party primary for president. It’s clear that Palin still has her sights set on the White House for 2012.
“. . .watched Sarah Palin closely. . .”
I enjoyed her CPAC speech, and her Breitbart Is Here piece, and concur with her Obama Dozen as a going-in position on the highlights of the balls #OccupyResoluteDesk has fumbled in his three years of thievish buffoonery while denigrating the office of President of the United States. Oh, the occasional Fox moment, I suppose, when recorded and put on YouTube. Who diverts time from blogging and reading blogs to watch Fox directly anymore?
Sarah is a charismatic political force. Conceptually similar to Breitbart’s media force, in fact. I say conceptually similar because direct comparisons fall apart immediately. I guess those on the Left who obsess about politics might “[watch] Sarah Palin closely”.
“. . .clear that Palin still has her sights set on the White House for 2012.”Really? The Left inflates the Sarah Palin ’12 rumor mill like Zimbabwe Ben Bernanke inflates the dollar. Are we to believe that she’s mentally gearing up for this? That the candidates who’ve spent months and millions competing for the nomination are cheerfully going to scuttle that investment in favor of someone who sat out the primaries and lobbed the occasional FaceBook zinger at BHO?
Sure, I’ll support whoever the GOP nominee is, but the likelihood of a “secret plot” to put Sarah Palin on the ticket, much less, existing seems right around 0.
What’s the point of this silliness? Oh, look at the bottom of the post:
Award-winning writer and filmmaker Geoffrey Dunn’s best-selling “The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power” was published by Macmllan/St. Martin’s in May of 2011 and will be published in paperback this May.
I heard it was a bestseller in Elbonia, with a literacy rate similar to the likelihood of a President Palin next January.
