If you insist on mischaracterizing a 10 year old quote, I think you'll find it's effectiveness is rather moot when people hear it in context.
“Palin is not running”
Did she email you? Post your link for her statement.
I think she is at the Iowa State Fair. Here is what Governor Palin said today about the Texas Governor at the Iowa State Fair:
“Palin: Alaska has a very powerful executive position. Texas, its not as powerful.
Palin: You have different functions in the state of Texas and the state of Alaska in terms of governing powers from the governors office .So its tough to compare what the executive duties are. We have a very strong governors office..”
In other words, her experience as Alaska Governor is more valuable than Perry’s and her accomplishments are more significant. Sure sounds like she is running to me. She certainly doesn’t seem to be trumpeting Rick Perry’s qualifications by commenting on the institutional weakness of the Texas governor. Some of you were swearing on threads just yesterday that Palin would endorse Perry. You might want to pull back on that one just a bit.
Keep telling yourself she is not running. just remember...wishing don’t make it so.
