Palin's future

The election isn’t over yet – and the GOP are talking about her run in 2012

It seems like there is one section of the GOP who will not be blaming Palin for the loss of this election if that should happen. They are actively courting her as a runner in the future – to be the leader of the GOP and, most surprisingly, they want her to start electioneering on the day McCain loses the election.

And should McCain lose next Tuesday, the Alaska governor will have little time to take a breath.

“She would have to start the day after the election if she wants to run for president — there is no period where the election isn’t going on,” Frum said.

Is Frum serious? Bejesus the American people are sick of this election – starting another one the day after would, well – not look good.

But if they are [the Palin camp] about to launch an attack to take over the reins – what say John McCain? He is still running for president? If he isn’t should someone in the GOP say something to him? I mean, the guy is a bit warped but wouldn’t it be easier just to let him know not to bother any more?

(CNN) — Election Day is still days away, but Republicans are already caught up in a heated debate about Sarah Palin’s future role in the party should the GOP ticket fail to win the White House.

Sarah palin! Yes, her – the one who is so secretive and, could we say a little devious is going to be put forward as a potential presidential candidate?

Are the GOP stupid?

She isn’t ready now – and she won’t be ready in four years. The best thing for Sarah Palinis to go back to Alaska, resign and get a good paying job in TV – somewhere.

In one corner are some conservatives who believe the Alaska governor has been a detriment to John McCain’s presidential bid and threatens to lead the party astray for the foreseeable future.

Another faction says Palin’s core-conservative beliefs, demonstrated political acumen, and compelling frontier biography position her to reshape the face of a party now viewed by many voters as out of touch.

Palin isn’t a conservative – she is a wingnut – the very same people who took over the GOP when Reagan came to office – THAT is why John McCain can’t get along with them, because he isn’t one of them. Palin is!

Palin, like the wingnuts, believe in theocracy – and they will try to get rid of the US Constitution because that gets in the way of what they want. If you want that – then good luck to you – but before that could ever happen there would have to be a new civil war, and by that I mean a real shooting war, not a philosophical one. But that is incredibly unlikely.

Evangelicals are getting into the race now with a recent ad depicting that if Obama wins, the apocalypse will follow – well, if you never thought that they were nuts before – you may well want to rethink that.

(Warning): That link has a reference to James Dobson in it – the nutter who endorsed McCain [because McCain picked Palin, go figure].

    In a year’s time Playboy will announce that Sarah Palin is appearing in its “Governors of Alaska” special issue.

    After that we will never hear from her again.

  2. DJR says:

    As all the people stand about they are going to get a swift kick in just a short time. They’ve been forewarned and have simple sat there and asked to be repressed. The numbers will tell the stories, and individuals will end in believing in anything. Arrogance will continue stupidity is the American theme. Hooray for Palin who you fear. Women will not be heard from again for a long time! The political machine has gunned down two women in this election making cause that no women should be allowed in in the future. The cry will be they can’t win so sit over there and shut up! Congratulations girls you acted like simple dumb pawns. Palin will rock on and everyone else can sit about wishing they were her.

  3. E. Monroe says:

    Why does Palin support a Marxis group Alaskan Independant Party who’s motto is “ I’m an Alaskan, not an American I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions”. She gave the opening speech at their convention and husband Todd is a member.

  4. Howard says:

    As the election approaches – remember the wise words of Abraham Lincoln
    * You cannot help the poor, by destroying the rich.

    * You cannot strengthen the weak, by weakening the strong .

    * You cannot bring about prosperity, by discouraging thrift.

    * You cannot lift the wage earner up, by pulling the wage payer down.

    * You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by inciting class hatred.

    * You cannot build character and courage, by taking away men’s
    initiative and independence.

    * You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could
    and should, do for themselves.

  5. Matt says:

    No doubt Howard, wise words. It is my feeling that we cannot repair our country with a moron leading it.
    I can deal with an economic conservative running our country, but not a religious conservative. If that religious conservative had the world-view necessary to lead I might give them a thought, but the one we’re currently having pressed on us by the GOP is simply unacceptable to most people. If they wanted to go down this path they should have forced Huckabee on McCain. At least he’s likable and endears people to him whereas Palin is writing lines in the dirt and telling America to choose sides.

  6. Michael says:

    Sarah Palin is a CANCER on the Republican Party…..

  7. leapsecond says:

    Matt, Howard: Totally, utterly agreed.

  8. Pangolin says:

    Palin is like the fruit of the mushroom. A transient body, usually poisonous, that reveals the existence of an unseen fungal mass. We all know what mushrooms thrive on don’t we?

  9. PiedType says:

    Fate willing, after November 4, Sarah Palin will never again appear on the national political scene.

  10. @ PiedType– From your keyboard to God’s email. However, Pangolin has a point.

    @ Pangolin– Why is it that bad poisonous weeds never die? It’s unfortunately, but I think we will be cursing McCain for putting the spot light on her for years to come. Palin will be a pain in my ass for a long time. btw, glad you’re here.

    @ Will— bright stop in the sky? I can say ass on your blog. 😦 Still disappointed about WHYS, too early for joke.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
