According to Sarah Palin, it’s still too early in the presidential election cycle for her to say for sure whether she’ll be putting the White House in her cross hairs for 2012. We’re not sure about that, but, regardless, Palin says she’ll take on the challenge if there’s “nobody willing to do it.”  —KA


In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, to air tonight, Palin let the moose out of the bag.

ET’s Mary Hart asked her bluntly: “Are you going to run for president?”

Palin began her response with what would be expected at this stage of the political cycle: “You know I have not decided what I’m going to do in 2012. I don’t think any of the potential candidates have. I think that still it is too early for anybody to get out there declaring what their intentions are.”

Seeing as how Palin coundn’t answer Katie Couric’s question as to what magazines and newspapers Palin read, I’d like to see someone on TV ask Palin another real basic question. How about…“Name the three branches od the Federal government”. I’d bet a thousand dollars that Palin doesn’t know that the answer is the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial.

Somebody please ask the vindictive moron that!

The 2012 white house residence was in her sites sometime in September or October 2008. Remember all the t-shirts she had made up with “Palin for 2012” on them?

She is so unqualified and ignorant of so many things and she dares to call herself the common sense candidate. Really. If she thought things were so tough for her that she had to leave her post as governor, what makes her think being president would be any easier? If elected,she will start wars with Iran and Russia and then book(leave)as she has in the past.

Once she makes a total disaster of what is left of America, she will no doubt secede Alaska from the rest of America and she can start her own littler serfdom. Void of all wildlife and pristine waters, landscape and air because letting big oil drill in ANWAR and her payoff from all those other mega corps will pad her pockets very well to get what they want and she can live the rest of her days in a dead and dying state formerly known as Alaska.

hello. a sex fest on ET, while i’m groping at hard
porn… i missed it. common sense will tell anyone
that if they had $4 billion/month for the next year,
they could buy everyone in the world a car. amazingly
Wall Street will be taking $100 (ONE HUNDRED) billion
/month for the next year from American tax payers;
and Ms. Palin (and nobody else in the political
machine) has anything to say about it. a QE of $100
billion/month- because they will need it. well, that
explains it all to me; and to all the candidates. go
right ahead, Wall Street, take all you need: that’s
common sense. nothing needing to be fixed there. no
fraudsters nor criminals need jail time on Wall
Street. go right ahead with what you have been doing
to this country, because she can distract them with
sex appeal. save the naked breasts for carbon taxes.
you go girl. it becomes a popularity contest, and
nobody needs to fix the machine. special interests,
lobbyists, crony partners- it is all about, does she
have the right makeup to make a man’s jaw drop and
his tongue lag. $100 billion/month- for what? i think
i could buy Haiti today with $3billion. i would call
it ROLLZONE. everybody would come and be happy. i
would still have $97 billion left this month. next
month i would buy Ontario, Canada; and begin
connecting to Alaska. $100billion/month for WHAT?
nobody in politics is listening to no more spending.

She would be a total disaster for the Republican Party. Can you imagine her standing toe to toe against Putin, or Ahmedinejadh? She’s a fucking cheerleader for godsake! Ya naw?

What head of state in the entire world would take her seriously? If it’s Hillary vs Palin in 2012, I’m voting for Hillary.

Karl Rove is absolutely right. She has no gravitas. It’s all rah-rah.

Coy?  Sarah Palin coy?  That adjective implies a level
of intelligence and cleverness. 

The woman has neither.

What a horse’s arse Ms. P. is. With an apology to all our equine pals.

She is not fit to even clean public toilets let alone run the public cesspool called our government.
