Speaking Candidly

Palin: The Never Again Politician

Yet when push comes to shove it is unlikely that there would be support of someone like Palin for high public office

Former quit and failed first term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, has been reduced to being a Fox Media mouthpiece employed to make controversial statements on national issues. She has been purchased lock stock and barrel (no pun intended) by the former Australian citizen Rupert Murdoch of News Limited to increase his group’s circulation and revenue.

In her new shoot from the hip role in the media and by commenting via her ghostwritten website, she has been carefully positioned to avoid intelligent debate. However she is no fool. Knowing her own limitations, when the time comes, there is absolutely no chance she will risk her newly discovered financial windfall and bonanza, by attempting to run in 2012.

Contrary to the media speculation she promotes, by neither confirming or denying any future political plans, she knows she wouldn’t survive as a candidate in a primary contest in a general election year. Her reasoning is simple. She is fully aware that not all supporters of the GOP are as lax, silly and as incompetent as John McCain.

Voters are often unpredictable. Yet when push comes to shove it is unlikely that there would be support of someone like Palin for high public office. Especially with her failed record in Alaskan politics, having resigned amidst legal controversy mid term, and whose only claim to national fame was due to the miscalculation and poor judgment of a not too bright, old politician from Arizona, who was desperate to find a running mate.

Is Ms Predator Palin a threat politically?  If you belonged to the endangered species of Alaska, what would you say?.

  1. John,

    You hit the nail on the head. She’s a third rate commentator and a fourth rate politician.

    Editor: David: Well put! I couldn’t have said it better.

  2. If the Democrats will make the election pretty good Mrs. Palin will be a running gag in American election histories. Mrs Palin is a media product. If Fox news is going to lose viewers the game is over for Mrs Palin. Sorry, Palin running for president, there are some better jokes in the US than this.
