10. More time to watch the NBA playoffs, and enjoy LeBron’s annual flame out. (Substitute hockey, if you prefer.) And after that, there’s always baseball, a fine sport to occupy our time. Why not hop on the Phillies bandwagon early this year?
9. More time for Newt Gingrich to step in political doo doo (again and again) and try to clean himself off, and regroup with a brand new staff (or possibly new wife. )
8. More time to wait for the inevitable miscues of Mitt “I like ethanol subsidies, mandates, and cap & trade” Romney, and Michele “I will not fire my misogynist campaign advisor” Bachmann.
7. Once Palin jumps in, it’s pedal-to-the-metal for 14 months! No Mediterranean cruises, no skipping Iowa, and no time for backstabbing friends. It’s ON.
6. More time to quietly Organize4Palin under the radar, saving up for the big push.
5. More time to let the GOP Establishment and Fox News run undisturbed with their
belief delusion that Palin’s not running, and watch them laughably try to convince us that one of their flip-floppers or political lightweights is gonna knock out the first African American president.
4. More time for Obama to screw up (again and again and again).
3. More time for the Palin family to prepare quietly and prayerfully for the competition of a lifetime while maximizing Governor Palin’s pre-announcement impact and marshalling resources for the battle ahead.
2. More time for the MSM to suddenly discover Palin’s record of reform, accomplishment and bipartisanship in Alaska. (Yeah, MSM, you wanted those 24,000 emails. You got them. Now we wonder if you’ll report what you actually find in them: a competent chief executive doing her job – something you told us was impossible for such a lightweight as Palin.)
1. Because like they say … “All good things come to those who wait.”
Oh, and as a bonus, waiting for a Palin presidential announcement gives us more time to laugh at the clownish behavior of the media, who after chasing Palin around New England last week are now preparing to pour through thousands of pages of emails, doing the work now that presidential historians will thank them for later, right? Ha!
Recovering Liberal M. Joseph Shepperd had a nice round-up of some of the comments left over at the New York Times after they solicited reader help in taking down Governor Palin.
Oh, I get it now! It’s like the media is the witch from Hansel & Gretel! We’ve been fattening up old Sarah, and now it’s time to push her into the oven!
This is just plain pathetic. Any local community newsletter has more self-respect. But as an Alaskan, I guess I should be flattered that the granular detail of our state politics are the center of your readers’ world
Can we look at the Time’s staff e-mails too? That would be cool!
PLEASE consider me for your muckraking expedition! I LOVE digging through emails looking for potential news stories. PLEASE keep me in mind when Barack Obamas and Nancy Pelosis are released also..Im SURE youll be looking for volunteers then too!
Let the WITCH HUNT begin !
Yeah, right, people will look for “interesting and newsworthy” emails. Yeah, and Dems are following Obamas plea for civility.
More like the Hatefest begins Fri afternoon, so Dems come early and come often, so our readers can feel better about themselves, after the Weiner debacle.
We will even give credit to the most snarky, snide, sarcastic person…so don’t be shy. We have a terrible President and even worse economy, so we need to divide and distract immediately.
Still my favorite responses were to the L.A. Times who asked its readers ”What should we be looking for?” and got the following responses:
Your journalistic integrity.
The Khalidi tape. Whoops, that’s in your archives.
With their actions in the last week, I am gonna go out on a limb here and just say it … The media have just elected President Palin.
Update: The Washington Post’s ombudsman attempts to explain the crowd-sourcing idea with this …
Sarah Palin and her e-mails are just too darn irresistible.
10...no issue...I hate bball.
9...gingrich is toast
8...I can easily handle Bachmann or Palin...or BOTH
5...the MSM and even fox still dont get it...
3...Palin’s family is my biggest concern...it is an issue not to be swept under the rug...the age of the youngest to a great mother makes the problems of the world second....I would still vote for her...but I found this the most troubling..
2...you can put a juicy, sizzling t-bone under the nose of the MSM with Palin’s name bbq’d right into it and they would not see it....it ain’t ever gonna change.
1...good things come to those who WORK....
I agreewith what I believe her strategy has been all along. Strongest and most fiscally responsible campaign I have ever seen. Using all of her assets to best advantage.
BTW, did you notice what News said when someone asked him why his campaign people left? He said there was a difference in strategy - they wanted to run a traditional campaign, he wanted an untraditional one. Wonder where he got that idea?
Because the GOP establishment needs to finally learn its lesson. No Sarah, no money. No Sarah, no confidence. No Sarah, no loyalty. Sarah is the Conservative BRAND. No Sarah, no votes. No Sarah, third party becomes tempting. No Sarah, no coattails. No Sarah, GOP dead in the water. They are slowly, slowly getting the message, but it has to be seared into their brains and their bank account. No Sarah, no nothing.
A great dad to pick up any slack.
pretty much my thoughts EXACTLY!
14 months from September 2011 is November 2012.
Methinks they are telegraphing that she plans on announcing in September.
Precisely. Have you noticed the huge change in quality and quantity on Michele Bachmann’s Facebook page since the Ed Rollins disaster?
Yes, I have. I know they were actively removing posted comments asking her for clarification, and there were some complaints about it too. I’m not surprised. She made her bed.
Sarah Palin is a heavyweight that will blow all of her competition out of the water. They don’t have a prayer. I am ready to say Madam President and I will be proud when she takes office.
Marx said communism was inevitable. But, in fact—
Sarah is inevitable.
