What pain? Have you seen the Palins in any pain? I haven’t. They’ve taken everything the political establishment has thrown at them and have not only survived but have thrived. Ever see them not smiling? And not a pasted on phony smile but genuine happiness. She is running, bet on it.
You can’t argue with RomneyBOTs and Gardasil-PerryBOTs.
She is on the books for about $20,000,000 a year, between FNC, consulting, books, and her paid speeches. Why take a chance to be marked a loser and risk all of that?
2008 is blamed on the Bush aftermath and McCain. A 2012 loss would be blamed on her personally.
In 2008, she came close to quitting one weekend. The personal attacks against her Down’s Syndrome child and other family members had gotten to be too much. In addition, after the campaign, when she returned to Alaska, it only got worse.
I love, support her, and wish she could be President.... but know she is too smart to run.
