What’s Sarah Up To?

It has become quite clear that Sarah Palin wants to derail Mitt Romney. Why? She might be thinking a brokered (or broken) convention will turn to her. Whatever the reason, she has increasingly become an advocate for not letting the GOP establishment (aka Romney) end the nomination race anytime soon.

“People who start screaming that a brokered convention is the worst thing that could happen to the GOP, they have an agenda. They have their own personal or political reasons, their own candidate who they would like to see protected away from a brokered convention. That’s part of competition, part of the process and it may happen.” (Palin, New York Times, 2/12)


Asked on Fox News Sunday if she thinks Romney is an “instinctive” conservative, Palin said, “I am not convinced and I don’t think that the majority of GOP and independent voters are convinced, and that is why you don’t see Romney get over the hump. He’s still in the 30-percentile mark when it comes to approval and primary wins and caucus wins. He still hasn’t risen above that yet because we are not convinced.”

  1. Sarah will have them come to her and beg her to run for president. At which time, unlike Christie, she will run for president. She will, of course, lose, no matter who she picks for 2nd banana.

    And that’s all there is to Sarah.

    She actually thinks she can “bush” her way thru the whole thing and emerge on TOP. Nothing annoys me quite like little high-schoolish “barracuda” girls.

    craig, the reason?
    follow the money.
    who pays her?
    who will make a bundle from increased negative ads needed for an extended campaign with many players?
    who can fill their airways with more stories of feuding candidates?

    who hoo?

  3. The GOP turn to Sarah Palin, what a laugh! Could they be that stupid..I would love to see her in a debate up against the president, now that would be something to see..Listening to Morning Joe, oh that Peggy Noonan, she is so tiresome..Setting there a rich upper crust snotty lady talking about birth control..Never crosses her mind how tough it is for poor woman to afford what she takes for granite..Go away Peggy, just go away..

  4. Well, I have heard clips of people saying they are sad she isn’t running. However, she-who-shall-not-be-named still fails to realize that her appearance on the McCain ticket is what drove some independents toward Obama.

    Or, maybe piping up now it just a good way for to get some attention, prove her brand isn’t obsolete, protect her speaking fees and book sales. Yeah, that sounds about right.

  5. Contraception and the Cost of the Culture Wars
    By E.J. Dionne

    Those of us who are liberal Catholics have remained in the church for reasons beyond tribal loyalties or a desire to honor the traditions of our parents and grandparents. At the heart of the love many of us have for the church — despite our frustrations over its abysmal handling of the sexual abuse scandal and its reluctance to grant women the rights they are due — is a profound respect for the fact on so many questions that count, Catholicism walks its talk and harnesses its faith to the good works the Gospel demands.

    Read at your own risk! EJ Dionne, another example of the over 60 old white male crowd that’s so out of touch..

  6. Mayor Palin has certainly spent enough money on image makeovers and assorted lifts to convince me that she’s an active, if unannounced, candidate.

  7. I’ve been pondering the potential affect of pork barrel legislation on swine futures, and the welfare of family farmers in general.


  8. Joe Scarborough’s Weird DM Rant Invades My Weekend

    by Taylor Marsh

    Calling him out on his quote and my analysis of it precipitated 23, 140 character DM exchanges over the weekend, initiated by Joe Scarborough. Oh, and the conversation was ended by Scarborough, too. But only after he was done venting in his final DM outburst. He then un-followed me, take that!

    I’m crushed. Really.

    Below are the first 2 DMs from Scarborough, no hello, just an attack out of the gate:

  9. Probably trying to get herself another convention speech, after all that was her 15 minutes of fame.

    Pathetic, really does not begin to describe her.

  10. “I wasn’t quite sure what the word ‘severely’ meant,” she said with a smile. “It sounded severe.” Sarah Palin.

    Let me explain it to you dear. Severely is similar to extremely, so Mitt was simply saying that he was extremely conservative. Just as one might say that you are severely or extremely out of touch with reality.
    Get it now? :???:

  11. sarah can have the nomination if she wants it. And then, it’s Katie bar the door.

    couple of weird things here. one, the state of a gop nomination race which would open the door for a Palin; and two, that she seems to be so delusional as to think she can run her jive and bullshit her way thru the Big Show. “Been there, done that,” she seems to think.

    Or…..she knows that she will lose and that She and her running-mate may as well kick it in the ass……

  12. Mrs. Palin is out of political capital. She became irrelevant with the shooting in Tucson. She is a shrill shill for Faux News and nothing more. She is also the Mother of a special needs child…let’s hear more about that Sarah! You promised during your VP run to make sure the special needs children were taken care of by the FEDERAL government. You promised would not abandon the pursuit of taking care of special needs children. I know you quit on the state of Alaska, but really, do not give-up on your own child!

    I guess, that IS who Sarah Palin really is!

  13. I can’t think of anything more unappetizing than half-baked Alaska.—Jace

    What a conundrum--for polar bears, what is better: Unbaked, half-baked or fully baked Alaska?

  14. Pat @ 6:43 sid follow the money. Good advice. If there is still a race by the time the convention starts, the electromedia will have made hundreds of millions more than if the contest ends on Super Tuesday. Besides being a rip up lican shill, palin is also an electromedia shill.

    If willard had claimed to be a mean-spirited conservative, we all would have understood him.

  16. Problem is, Willard isn’t a mean spirited conservative, just a clueless one. He views himself as a very practical conservative and compared to the rest of the Republican party activist, he is.

    Case in point

    Jack

  17. palin may also dislike willard personally.

    We could ask her what exactly generates this animus, couldn’t we ?

    As Fakes News is the voice of neoconmunism, and willard appears to carry the neocon colors, does palin’s jibbering mean that murderch and the Saudis now feel willard is a hollow reed ? Are they looking for a new neocon to grab the nomination ?

  18. From the link posted above

    Max Blumenthal’s latest takes us on a shocking and at times bizarre tour of right-wing Pastor John Hagee’s annual Washington-Israel Summit, blowing the cover off the Christian Zionist movement in the process. Starring Joe Lieberman, Tom DeLay, Pastor John Hagee, Ambassador Dore Gold and a host of rapture-ready evangelicals praying for Armaggedon.

    Don’t miss the part where Holy Joe compares his good friend Pastor John Hagee to Moses.

  19. Except for Willard the entire gooper field is in it to improve their billable rate. All of them except for Willard are supported by right-wing loon speaking engagements and consulting contract

    I’m sure no one was more shcked then nudie when he thought he could actually win. What would he do then -- he would have to deliver and if god forbid he became president how would he and Callista manage since they apparently are never more than three feet from each other….(the mind boggles)

  20. Good point about the closeness, KGC. Calista’s platinum hair helmet is sort of like a tin foil hat! She is Gangrich’s antennae for channeling the moon and all other political travel.

  21. BW

    “like a tin foil hat”

    boy howdy I think you’ve nailed the whole arrangement

    There is a facebook page devoted to her hair

  22. C’mon folks we know what’s happening. She is a ‘wrecker’ of anything that doesn’t have to do with her egomania needs. She loves attention. It is THE subsitute for you know what.

    Stop the Presses on her. She is a carbunckle on the good names of John McCain and that guy that keeps shouting 999.
