    Sarah PAINlin just announced on the Mark Levin show that she is NOT running for President in 2012.
    Now we don't have to put up with her gaffs like Michelle Bachmann calling North Dakota a nation as she did today. NICE!

    This may be the least surprising bit of news, ever.

    Only the willfully dumb and the gleefully ignorant have believed the former half term governor of Alaska was running for anything other than increased book sales and cable TV appearances.

    I’ve been saying for almost three years now that she is not running.

    She’s a grifter and a nitwit.

    But Tea Party people, i.e. far right loony Republican base, by all means keep sending her your money. Because she’ll soon be pointing out that you can never rule anything out and 2016 is not that far in the future.

    You betcha’!

    And No Party, I'm (deeply) sorry to be the one to inform you that she's not going anywhere. She'll continue to say dumb, inflammatory, and provably untrue things on every right wing media source that will have her throughout the 2012 election season. Sarah Palin inc. has to keep the money flowin'. That's all this has ever been about.

    See also, Newt Gingrinch and Herman Cain. (Who is not even campaigning right now and instead took time off for a book tour. LOL)

    Mark Levin is hilarious - in small doses. He almost sounds like a Phil Hendrie parody of a right-wing talk show host. At some point you realize he's not kidding...

    I bet if the looney right had been courting her the same way they have been courting Christie, she would have jumped in.

    Well, Christie represents a reasonable, sensible shot at winning.

    Palin does not.

    The Hank Williams Jr. wing of the GOP is going to have to get over itself if it wants any chance at unseating Obama. Winning the nomination by gaining the votes of science-denying, closet-Confederate yokels is one thing; gaining the confidence of the great urban population centers is another. That means focusing on the one hard issue where the Tea Party's right...money.

    Palin's not running because she knows she'll be laughed off the big stage again, just like Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry already are being right now (see any poll). Christie's smart to wait until he has much more experience, doesn't quit his job in mid-term like Palin, and gets his health in order. But that leaves the GOP needing a candidate who can convince America that he or she can do what Obama has not done, namely, undo the damage that was piled on Obama's desk when he arrived.
