By the time 2012 rolls around quotes like this one from her facebook page will be all but forgotten:
"I am now looking ahead and how we can advance this country together with our values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, stronger national security, and much-needed fiscal restraint.".Why has English as a Second Language become an accepted course study for Republican Presidential Candidates?
Jokes aside, she's just an idiot, and you cannot hide that for 3 years. When I heard the news this Saturday she was stepping down as governor I wondered if she really was trying to make the smallest splash possible by announcing in the middle of the slowest news weekend of the year. Then I realized she probably was since stepping down as a sitting governor for no other reason than to make as much money as possible while she still can is probably not the greatest of excuses. I am sure she will be speaking somewhere close to your hometown in no time.
Then there is the whole "tired of it" thing, meaning by the time she is running Americans will be over her. I would guess most already are, but by 2012, for certain. Because of her diarrhea of the mouth, and her hokey talk-to-the-people-directly disposition, she will certainly fuck up more times in 3 years than you can say "gee whiz."
Even though she alienated her own party in a big way, that has nothing to do with whether she will be nominated, or even stand a chance. Republicans do not care about who did what to whom, or when. If she can win they will forget everything. They care about winning and that is all. If she's viable they will foist her up to the podium.
All of this has nothing to do with her relationship with other Republicans, but everything to do with how she handles herself going forward. Quite frankly, she's too stupid to win, has too many skeletons which will be uncovered, and in this fast pace news world we live in, she will be old news come the next election.
And besides, once Obama gets shot at and survives it will almost guarantee another 4 years.
