With the Alaska Republican primary on the horizon, Alaskas most prominent Republican has been making the rounds on Fox News, and this morning Sarah Palin stopped by to tell Republicans to keep their eye on the Democratic ball, not to fear a brokered convention, and not to watch Game Change. But in doing so she made a new revelation in being asked whether she would take the convention stage should it be brokered: she doesnt expect anyone to support her.
Giving a similar evaluation to the field in Alaska as she did last night that Mitt Romney would probably take it, and Rep. Ron Paul would make a strong showing anchor Uma Pemmaraju asked the question that everyone always asked Palin about the primary, just in case she changes her mind: would you throw your hat in the ring, in a brokered convention? Im not going to be asked! Palin laughed, but added, if it results in a brokered convention, that is nothing to fear. She noted that she would support any candidate, anybody but Obama.
Palin also weighed in on Rick Santorums attempts to woo independents and Democrats in open primaries, which she found fair. A dirty trick is when your kids are attacked, she argued, not soliciting independent Americans.
As for Game Change, Palin said she wouldnt give it the time of day, but knows it is false because there were people on my side who were with us 24/7″ who saw and read the story and knew it was false. She ended by throwing Rep. Allen Wests name out as a good potential vice presidential candidate.

She would damage the country as president?
Although among the other factors mentioned, money was also probably a factor, I don’t think that’s the main reason she’s not in it now. I think it was the attacks on her children.
I hope what I saw was true about her running in 2016, which, if true, must mean she feels her family would be old and seasoned enough to handle the Leftist attacks.
If she becomes president do you think those attacks will end? No, they will be a continuous distraction and that will be a drain on The Republic.
Wow. I guess you weren’t backing Reagan back in the 70’s and 80’s.
See post #9.
Yes, as a matter of fact I was. You are comparing apples and oranges.
You got it right. The GOPEes are going to do everything they can to keep her away, if there is a brokered convention. They are almost as nasty as the libs, within their own party.
