    Go Sarah Palin!


    by Sunny
    10th July, 2010 at 6:14 pm    

    I really, really want Sarah Palin to run as the Republican candidate for President in 2012. She is Obama’s best hope. Chris Matthews from MSNBC lays out what that path might look like.

    And this blog post is also spot on:

    Palin has smartly positioned herself as the champion of the conservative counter-revolution. By December, she will almost certainly be the de facto front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination.

    By the time the Establishment GOP wakes up to this reality, it may be too late for them to do anything about it. Their view of Palin is that she’s useful to the party because she can help keep “the Tea Party types inside the tent.” And maybe she can serve coffee while she’s at it. Palin’s view is that (1) “the Tea Party types” are the party, (2) she is their standard bearer and (3) anyone who thinks “the Tea Party types” are there to lick envelopes and knock on doors should think again. They’re there, she asserts, to take back their party and to take back their country.

    via Andrew Sullivan. I can’t wait for the Republican implosion. I’m also going to look forward to Nick Cohen telling us how great Sarah Palin is, for the second time.

    Also worth noting: Liberal Groups in the US are organising themselves to get Obama to move on his promises, and regenergise the base so they can come out and vote. The danger for Democrats in the mid-term elections is that Republicans are far more fired up to go out and vote than Democrats.

      I really, really want Sarah Palin to run as the Republican candidate for President in 2012. She is Obama’s best hope

      Be careful what you wish for. I would rather have two decent candidates, rather than having a dangerously incompetent candidate with a distorted view of the world. Like Bush vs Gore in 2000.

      Sarah Palin is good for the punditry, which is why they are boosting her profile. But it is extremely unlikely she will get nominated. In 2008, McCain was not very popular among Republicans, specially among Tea Baggers types, but he secured the nomination early on because he was perceived to be the most electable.

      This will be specially true if things go really bad for Obama, and Republicans perceive that they have a chance to win. Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee.

      I actually do not see any Republican beating Obama.

    2. Sally — on 10th July, 2010 at 9:59 pm  

      Ravi..I agree with you. The leadership is using her to be their bad cop…to get a rise out of the left, and to test the waters to see which garbage sticks to the wall. She will wilt in a Republican debate…I cannot see the men allowing her to get away with her non-answers and her quips. They are serious about being President. For her, it would be a chance to use the nuke button. Americans are far smarter than that. I also think that there is a big dossier on her at the RNC, and if she chooses to run, the facts will finally come out. She cost McCain the election, and nothing she has shown since makes her electable now.

      Yeah but the Teabaggers are crazy. You think they’ll go for Romney? You don’t think they think Palin can win against Obama?

    4. Ravi Naik — on 11th July, 2010 at 8:00 am  

      Yeah but the Teabaggers are crazy. You think they’ll go for Romney? You don’t think they think Palin can win against Obama?

      I think these people will vote for Sarah Palin regardless of her electability, but they are a minority among Republicans and will not have the chance to crown the queen. The fact that teabaggers are vocal and get a lot of media coverage (specially from Fox News) does not mean they are speaking for the majority of Republicans.

      ha ha Be careful what you wish for. First thing I thought when I read this.

      I can see it now … Theatre of the Absurd, Nov 2010, in front of the family TV:

      “Mom, when do the pink elephants come on? Mom!!!! WHEN DO THE PINK ELEPHANTS COME ON???? MOMMMMMMM??? Can I have some more popcorn, puhleeeeeeze???”

    7. DEO — on 11th July, 2010 at 8:08 pm  

      $arah Palin/Tonya Harding 2012!

    8. Sara — on 12th July, 2010 at 4:17 am  

      The alternative nightmare scenario is Palin stands as Republican candidate and BEATS Obama thus becoming President. Shudder. With the economy in dissaray and his unpopular health care policy this isnt at all impossible.

    9. Vikrant — on 12th July, 2010 at 5:30 am  

      Health care here isnt as unpopular as it might seem but yea Sunny those Republicans aren’t imploding anytime soon… If anything Dems should expect to lose a few seats in the Senate and quite a few in the house this November!

    10. Bill — on 12th July, 2010 at 10:59 pm  

      Meanwhile, back in the real world, since the 2008 election more and more Americans are describing themselves as conservatives rather than liberals.

      I wonder if Obama has squandered a rare opportunity, by misreading his election as a sea change in American attitudes. If the House falls to the Republicans this Fall then it’s hard to see how his agenda will ever make further progress.
