Sarah Palin Won't Go Presidential & Also Won't Go Away


Sarah Palin
Heck no, I won't go!
Three cheers for the official but not-so-surprising Sarah Palin announcement today on Mark Levin's radio show -- she will not run for President of the United States.

But don't get too excited. We all knew, even before she said so, and she's still not going away (no, not even into the depths of the Alaskan wilderness forever no matter how hard you wish it so). And I have to say I've got that funny feeling where I'm not quite sure if this is good news or bad news. At least when she was still in the running, I was pretty darn sure she'd never be President. But what kind of damage is she going to do as an "unshackled" and rogue maverick for the right? Or even worse, how many annoyingly weird off-the-mark things can she say over the next year? Yes, I said it. A whole 'nother year of Palin.

Well, here's an outline of her master plan:

In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.

Okay, well, that doesn't sound too scary, I mean, because she won't really do any of this -- because those are just words she's sending out of her mouth. She has no real idea what it takes or how to make any of this really happen. It's not as easy as renting a "One Nation" bus, taking the family out for a ride across the country, and calling in the reality show camera crews. If it were that easy, Palin would be our woman. Of course, only time will tell whether the "power of Palin" will result in any real change for better or for worse.

So who's going to get the Sarah Palin votes now? Michele Bachmann or Ricky Perry? Or is this going to help Herman Cain? What about Mitt Romney?

How do you feel about Palin's announcement today?

 The White House is the last place this woman needed to be anyhow.  She can get back to selling and marketing herself to anyone who will listen and look.  So do all the people who donated their hard-earned money to her PAC get a refund from sending her on her cross-country escapades to sell books?   At least the race will have some semblance of politics and not reality TV with her absence.    Get a sneak peek at her next big venture as she keeps her strip tease going at

Funny how you and the rest of the bloggers at theStir hate her, loathe her, make fun of her children, and wish for her to go far away(and even die), but yet you write entire blogs about her. Maybe its time that you guys give it a rest, and let go of your anger. Let go of your hatred. Maybe you will sleep better.

Her "help" in the 2010 election proved to be the not so midus touch so I say let her do her thing! Hahaha

Palin is one the most ignorant and misinformed politicians ever. Her voice is like nails on a blackboard.

I kind of wish she did run, the best part of the 2008 elections? Watching Tina Fey's Sarah Palin skits. I would have liked some more of those.

And your illustrious messiah is so knowledgeable and informed to be running the greatest country (at least it was) in the free world. I know, it's Bush's fault! (that is really getting old, folks) As far as her bus tour, at least she traveled in the bus. This photo-op president flew from stop to stop and then boarded his bus to make a grand entrance. Why would he put on such a grand sham if it didn’t resound with his throngs? He is all about the appearance, not the task. As others have said, Palin has to be a major thorn in the left’s side otherwise they would never give her the attention they do.

She'll stick around and continue to make the Left itch, twitch, scratch and chew at their own asses like inbred dogs.  Love it.  L-O-V-E.
