“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, it’s 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 governor’s office….So it’s tough to compare what the executive duties are. We have a very strong governor’s 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.

Nope, she's not running. Already put money on it.

Will be a little late if she does. She's barely out of the single digits.

And I don't think the 30 months of executive experience in the least populous state transcends 12 year as Governor of the 15th largest economy, even though most of the legislative power rests with the Lt. Governor and not the Governor. At the very least they're equal, and that's being generous.
