No, this is jot a joke. Not kidding, not joshing ya, not The Onion. Esto no es un chiste y yo se que Vd. no puede creerlo. As the GOP is now reeling from an election campaign where its clear failed Presidential candidate and increasingly self-discredited-by-mouth Mitt Romney ignored, turned off, or neglected to woo key growing groups the GOP needs to survive .as the GOP is soul searching about ways to offer a more affirmative and positive form of politics that offers solid specifics rather than warmed over talk radio riffs or lines seemingly grabbed from blogs Charlotte Allen in the L.A. Times suggests what it really needs is: Sarah Palin as its 2016 nominee.
"The Republican Party has been doing a lot of hand-wringing and finger-pointing since the presidential election. Half the conservative columnists and bloggers say the GOP lost because it overemphasized social issues such as abortion and gay marriage. The other half says the party didnt emphasize them enough. And everyone denounces Project ORCA, the campaigns attempt to turn out voters via technology.
But Ive got a suggestion for cutting short the GOP angst: Sarah Palin for president in 2016.
You think Im joking? Think again."
She makes her case in detail and says:
"Some Republicans will say Palin has too much baggage from 2008, and we need to look for a new Sarah Palin."
Sarah Palin has so much baggage TSA is opening a new office to inspect it.
"But I dont see whats wrong with the one weve got. Ever since the 1990s, Republicans have been looking for the next Ronald Reagan. Reagan is now revered in bipartisan circles, but during his presidency he was, like Palin, ridiculed by liberals. They cited Bedtime for Bonzo and sneered at his no-name college degree.(continued)

I won’t vote for another Bush and it’s not because I’m mad at the father or son. I think botgh are good Americans with flaws. Bth were head and shoulders above the imbecile in the office now. But dynasties are a China thing. Enough is enough. I always end up voting for the nominee even though I oppsed them in the primaries but Jeb is one case where I’ll break that rule.
With all due respect, there were several possible explanations for Palin sitting the last race out.
First off, her daughters were still young. She may have seen them growing through that age just as a candidacy was going on, as damaging to their future.
They’ll be older, will have four additional years when the next race is on. That’s a long long time at that age.
Second she won’t be up against Mitt next time either. That was a serious challenge, no question about it with the GOPe on his side.
The GOPe has been greatly de-fanged. Even a Bush or a Rubio, could be beat handily.
Just saying. Not sure if she’ll run or not, but it’s a pretty strong case, for her thinking about it anyway.
Remember how the media loved Romney? Oh the good ol’ days! /s
I’m all in.
I hear you about dynasties.
Maybe so; but things could change.
If you’re as much a libertarian as your home page suggests, you should welcome Palin with open arms.
Already so many articles about her with regard to 2016!
What the heck are they worried about?
Yes to Palin! It is high time! She has earned her wings and she has the guts and gumption to put the left in their place. I’m sick of the “They’e nice people, but we just don’t agree on things”. The left are NOT NICE! Obama is NOT NICE! Stop the nonsense! It doesn’t ring true, and makes everyone in the republican party look like losers. I’m sick of the republican party so I pray they start a new conservative party out of the ashes of the smoldering GOP. There is NO WAY that the republicans can win the WH again, if this pact they signed in 1981 is permanent, the one to NEVER challenge voter fraud. The only way out is to dissolve it, start over, but this time, leave the party hacks and party elites OUT! We don’t need any more pacts with the devil.
I think it's somebody who's too old to be a H7er, but too young to be a H9er.
Are you being serious? (I’m not being a smartass)
That doesn’t answer a thing!
A hater is someone who is typically jealous of someone else’s money/car/clothes/girlfriend/status. They can never say anything good about the person they’re “hating on”. It’s an urban term.
He should have spelled it out, H8r doesn’t mean squat!!!!
H8R is a way that the “youths” spell it when texting.
I don’t converse with youths and we have texting blocked on our phones!!!
Phones are tools not toys!
