    Sarah Palin, who with 17 months remaining in her single term as Alaska's governor quit the only serious office she has ever held, is obsessively discussed as a possible candidate in 2012. Why? She is not going to be president and will not be the Republican nominee unless the party wants to lose at least 44 states

    Yeah, uh-huh, okay, like tell us something we don't know. Maybe you should do a post on the GOP primary projections. I'm betting that Palin wouldn't win any state except AK. She simply isn't presidential timber.

    She quit as governor to make a lot of money. I can't fault her for that, she left with the bogus ethics charges at 0 - 17. I hope someone charges Obama with malfeasance and he leaves early too. He could go back to his old job of "community organizer".

    It seems as though the left can't get enough of Sarah. Most people on the right respect her but know that she is not ready for the presidency.

    Will's being optimistic about how many states the GOP would lose.

    N'ah, Obama isn't a quitter.

    I think you are right about Palin's motivations behind quitting office though.

    Of course, that means she can't come out and say she isn't going to run for President.

    It would cost her $.

    Since when is George Will the left? George Will is a lifelong Republican. Hell, he broke journalistic neutrality to help Ronald Reagan prep for his debate with Jimmy Carter. You equating George Will with the left makse you look like a douche.

    I'm sorry, I was referring to all the left who is so hung up on Sarah Palin on this board and in the media in General. George Will would be one of those who understands she is not presidential material at the moment at least.

    I'm pretty sure that George Will knows that she will never be Presidential material.

    Personally, I like her positions. I her politics. Most of them anyway. The problem is that she cannot articulate what her positions are. She could not articulate what the office she was seeking entailed. That is my problem. Politics is 80% perception. Maybe she isn't the dumbass that I truly believe her to be, but she sure does come off as one, you betcha.

    Do you want me to start listing the threads touting Palin as the Savior of the right wing?
